First time on CD - "The Id", an incredible 1967 Los Angeles studio musician project. The members of the group were all playing with other groups, but, came together to rehearse, develop, and build the album. In July and August of 1966 they recorded the "Inner Sounds of the ID" album, released in January of 1967, just when the new age of rock and roll had begun. The band, The Id, was featured in a full-page advertisement in Billboard Magazine in January of 1967. The single of The Inner Sounds of the Id, titled, "Short Circuit," along with the title cut, "The Id," and "Boil the Kettle Mother," became popular on undergound radio stations in L.A. in the late 1960s. - Billboard gave the song "Short Circuit" a Bullet and very favorable reviews. The executive producer of the group wanted to debut the band in Chicago. The musicians felt they should open in San Francisco, which was more open for "modern", more experimental sound. But, The ID went to Chicago and played there for three weeks. Things did not work out and the band returned to Los Angeles. The musicians went their separate ways."The Inner Sounds of the Id" features rock and roll with various sounds, oriental influences, played in various time signatures like 17/8, 20/8, and 7/4 time, as well as straight-ahead blues/rock in 4/4 time. The title track, longer than 10 minutes is build as a collage, meditative lyrics transmit the vibrations from the deep inside through a mystic, floating sound and cosmic sitar - rock and roll from inner space. The Inner Sounds of the ID, is always an intense and creative album on highest level of musicianship and proficiency. Here you hear the rock´n´roll roots drifting into psychedelic and progressive music - not comparable to others, it was ahead of its time and maybe it inspired the Beatles for their "Sgt. Pepper" album or Rolling Stones for "Their Satanic Majesties Request".This CD contains an extended and informative booklet plus 10 bonus tracks. An early stereo Rock`N`Roll experience recorded in 1966 - perfect soundquality!
