Item ID: 410946

This superb release tells the story of L.A.-based '60s teen
band We The People (not to be confused with the better known
Florida outfit of the same name). These guys played an amazing
blend of garage, folk-rock and psychedelia, resulting in a
handful of cool 45s which they recorded for the Reena label in
1967-'68. Two of those 7-inches were released using the moniker
The American Zoo. Guitar player Bill Bottrell later became a
Grammy award producer, working with Michael Jackson, Madonna
and George Harrison among others. Drummer Jason "Jasun" Martz
toured with Frank Zappa and recorded with Michael Jackson. Today, he's a well-known avant-garde artist and sculptor. Steve
Zaillian, the band's original drummer, became an Academy Award
winning director, producer and screenwriter ('Schindlers List'
and 'Hannibal' among others). This collection includes all the
We The People/American Zoo 45 sides plus two previously
unreleased tracks from 1967, taken from the only surviving copy
of the band's ultra rare 10-inch demo acetate. Featuring
carefully remastered sound, the release also includes an
insert/booklet with rare photos and detailed liner notes by
Gray Newell (Shindig!, Ugly Things).
