The Ides of March

The Ides of March  are an American rock band that had a major US and minor UK hit with the song “Vehicle” in 1970.  After going on hiatus in 1973, the band returned with their original line-up in 1990 and has been active since then.  (More from Wikipedia)

Pebbles, Volume 10 is also how I came to find out about the Human Expressionone of several garage-rock and psychedelic-rock bands that I wrote about in Wikipedia in the pre-UARB days.  The album also includes a song by the Ides of March that came out before their hit song, “Vehicle”; as well as an early song by the Five Americans of “Western Union” fame.  “Primitive” by the Groupies, one of the best songs on this album was later featured on one of the Born Bad CD’s.
