British band The Nightriders were kicking around in the mid 1960's not going anywhere after numerous personnel changes. Guitarist Jeff Lynne joined the lineup in 1966 and the group name changed to The Idle Race. The music press took an instant like to the band, describing their style as schizophrenic pop with acid backdrop. Thanks to elevated credentials, the band often shared the stage with bands like The Who, The Small Faces, Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, Status Quo, Tyrannosaurus Rex and more. The band had plenty of famous admirers, including Marc Bolan and The Beatles (Lynne would eventually work with George Harrison and later the remaining Beatle members on their "Anthology" series). Idle Race released 3 albums during their tenure: "The Birthday Party", "The Idle Race" and "Time Is". All three are compiled on this set along with numerous bonus tracks, a treasure trove for fans of mid 60's psychedelia and The Electric Light Orchestra.
