Blues Magoos

Blues Magoos - Psychedlic Lollipop (1966)

Reviewed by Gary (Auburn, California), from amazon.com

Wow, this is a great album! I bought this record while in high school, living in Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota, that's ranger country people. Nothing much to do there, except listen to music. This album had been out of print for many years until recently released on cd. I have depended on reel to reel tapes to keep from losing track of this fine group altogether.

The Blues Magoos sounded like no one else in 1966, fresh and heavy with new psychedelic sounds and great vocal harmonies. "We ain't got nothin'yet" went on to be a big hit for the Magoos, but "She's coming home", "Queen of my nights" and the best version ever of "Tobacco Road" are my favorites on their first and best lp. If you like Aorta, early Country Joe & the Fish, Clear Light, Fever Tree or the Seeds you need this fine cd in your collection. Peace & Rock on

Tracks:

1. (We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet
2. Love Seems Doomed
3. Tobacco Road
4. Queen of My Nights
5. I'll Go Crazy
6. Gotta Get Away
7. Sometimes I Think About
8. One by One
9. Worried Life Blues
10. She's Coming Hom
