AllMusic Review by

Florida's We the People were among the many very versatile bands that proliferated in that state during the mid-1960s. Rising from the ashes of groups like the Offbeets, the Trademarks and the Nonchalants, We the People could play everything from raw beat material to feedback rave-ups to harmony ballads with consummate ease. This two-CD, 40-track collection brings together the band's entire history from the early 45s by the aforementioned combos to the entire We the People recorded legacy, including unissued tracks, demos and alternate takes. Highlights include "My Brother, the Man," "(You Are) The Color of Love," "He Doesn't Go About It Right," "Follow Me Back to Louisville" and raw demos of "I Wanna Do It," "You Like Me, You Love Me" and "Boy, She Just Don't Feel It." With a booklet chock-full of great liners and photos galore, this is the definitive look at a cult group that fans of '60s rock & roll will go nuts over.
