BLUES MAGOOS: Mercury Singles (1966-1968) (LP)

(2016/Sundazed) 16 tracks.
Hailing from NYC, The Blues Magoos took the folk,blues soundtrack of their mid-sixties Greenwich Village contemporaries and forged it into a tough, garage,psych hybrid that attracted fans as quickly as it angered folk club owners, incensed by the band's volume and unhinged stage show! Signed by Mercury Records in 1966, their inaugural single for the label, a reading of John D. Loudermilk's "Tobacco Road," was a churning 4:30 minute(!) plunge into crazed guitar,organ,drum,bass pyrotechnics with vocals careening over the top. The release hailed the arrival of a new and wholly unique voice on the rock scene. It was also a signpost for a new genre. One of the first albums to use "psychedelic" in the title, it arrived right on time for a generation ready to expand their consciousness with the aid of their turntables. The album's next single, band-penned "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet," featured one of the all-time great riffs, an insistent bass run over which keyboards swirled and unison vocals chanted. An absolute smash, "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" zoomed to #5 on the national pop charts and made the band an exotic household name. In total, The Blues Magoos released three amazing albums and eight incredible singles on Mercury. Longtime fans, Sundazed has now gathered all sixteen A- and B-sides together on The Blues Magoos: Mercury Singles (1966-1968). Featuring the accurate, original mono single mixes from the Mercury masters, these songs have never sounded better!

The Blues Magoos

The Blues Magoos, street kids from the Bronx, were regu-lars at the Café Wha on MacDougal Street and the Nite Owl Café in the Village before Mercury signed them. The Magoos — Ralph Scala, vocals, organ; Ron Gilbert, bass; Geoff Daking, drums; Mike Esposito, lead guitar; Peppy Thielhelm, rhythm guitar and vocals — notched up hit singles, notably '(We Ain't Got) Nothing Yet' — a No. 5 in 1966 —and 'There's A Chance We Can Make It', and had two good selling albums Psychedelic Lollipop (the first use of the word in an album title — complete with the 'play at high volume' tag) and Electric Comic Book (1967).

They really knew how to hype. The second album contained a little comic book full of offers like the 'Psyche-de-lite' to turn you on while you played the album, itself 'a Blues Magoos Con-cert in your own home'. But unless seen on stage, the impact of the Vidal Sassoon hairstyles and Diana Dew-designed electric suits was missed. Their music, live or on record, was largely forgettable, rampant and discordant, reaching a new low point on Basic Blues Magoos, which featured a much changed group, and the electronic storm on Gulf Coast Blues (ABC, 1970), after which the group briefly mellowed their sound before disappearing.
