Among the highlights: "Soul To Soul" finds the Ides in a solid R&B groove, while "For One Moment" glides on an introspective mood. The title cut "Keep Rocking" is perhaps the hardest driving tune the band has ever recorded in their 45 years together. Throughout the Ides history, they have taken some of their favorite songs and produced elaborate arrangements of them. The Beatles "A Day In The Life" gets the treatment this time, and promises to be a show stopper when the Ides perform it in concert.
A four song "EP" is available now through the Ides' Web site www.theidesofmarch.com , with a special code that will allow buyers to download the new songs as they are finished. The complete CD will be released in November.
