Editorial Reviews

Chicago's Ides of March excelled at vibrant British Invasion-style pop-rock. Stuffed with ultra-rare single sides, unreleased material and never-before-seen photos, Ideology: The Ides of March 1965-1968 showcases what lead singer Jim Peterik refers to as the band's "signature harmonies." And the heartfelt liner notes have been drafted from the unique perspective of a onetime schoolgirl devotee of the Ides who grew up to be president of the band's fan club. For your listening pleasure, Ideology comes with 18 sizzling tracks!

...there was Ides of March, phase one, which was definitely a pop vocal group with the accent on harmonies and jangly, Byrds-type tunes; those expecting "Vehicle"-type music with wailing brass will be disappointed in that way. However, there's lots of good music tastefully and creatively arranged and sung by lead singer Jim Peterik (beginning at 15 years old, no less--not bad, even if the liner notes reveal he even didn't know what a "modulation" was). The biggest hit off of here is the first track, "You Wouldn't Listen," propelled by a Marketts-like guitar intro, though in a sunny major key and smooth call-and-response vocal stylings. Very catchy and compulsively singable ("now you have gotta pay, you've gotta payyy..."). The major reason I was really excited by this release was the inclusion of the follow-up single "Rollercoaster", which has just been impossible for me to find. Thank you Sundazed Records (lots of neat 60s stuff from them)! So nice to have this stuff on CD--"I'll Keep Searching" uses a faux sitar-like whine and a neat middle eastern-like melody for a memorable tune, "Girls Don't Grow on Trees" has a nice contrast between its itchy verse with restless guitars and its heartfelt and straightforward if purply prosaic chorus (high school shows through here), and they even do a nice respectable job on two covers, "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" and "Sha-La-La-La-Lee." OK, you hear HINTS of the brass to come on "Girls..." and "My Foolish Pride" (whose trumpets recall Herb Alpert in the bull ring more than anything, to me).Read more ›

....not prevalent. Buyin this album, I expected more. Don't get me wrong, Sundazed did another bang up job with the packaging and liner notes, and there is enough Byrds-ish pop for the casual jangly fan to like. These guys, for their age, could rock. "Girls Don't Grow On Trees" should be a radio classic, as should the damn addictive "Things Aren't Always What They Seem". The rest of this sometimes catchy, sometimes bland album is middle of the road stuff. The band seemed to lose focus when their poppy sound didn't propel them to the top. They fool around with various genres, but in the end, it's all for naught. Lead singer Jim Peterik may look like Buddy Holly, but he has an even more expressive voice than him. If you want to hear a folk rock meets british mersey-beat group bent on vocal harmony, give this a try.

This is the Ides before their big break-through hit VEHICLE....they added a lead vocalist & got a one-hit wonder. But these tracks sound nothing like VEHICLE. On this album you'll hear track after track of great home grown rock that is on par and very similar to early work by the Beatles, the WHO, The Kinks, Buckinghams, Box Tops and others...These are really great catchy tunes that epitomize innocent and simple early garage rock...and these were local boys from the Lakes Region !!

Any horn player from the 70's will love this collection of "Brass Rock" from one of the best kept secrets of the 70's. The Ides aheived national fame with "Vehicle", but as this collection shows, they had much more to offer. And, remember that Jim Peterik is one of the founding members of Survivor, so the music lived on in the 80's & 90's. Keep on rocking.
