Description
The Blues Magoos launched their recording career with a major smash, hitting the Top Five with the brash garage-punk anthem "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet." That tune is just one of the multiple pleasures of Psychedelic Lollipop, notable as one of the first albums (along with the 13th Floor Elevators' debut) to use the word "psychedelic" in its title. The band balances swaggering proto-punk attitude, a Beatlesque pop sensibility and adventurous acid-pop experimentalism on such tunes as "Gotta Get Away," "One by One" and "Love Seems Doomed." And the Magoos' high-energy workouts on James Brown's "I'll Go Crazy" and John Loudermilk's "Tobacco Road" rank with the greatest versions of those much-covered garage-band standards. This 60s garage-psych nugget is now available from Sundazed on High Definition Vinyl, sourced from the original Mercury-label stereo masters, with the colorful original cover art meticulously reproduced. In their '60s heyday, the Blues Magoos were one of the first garage-punk bands to achieve mainstream success, and one of the first to embrace psychedelia. Early in their existence, the Bronx-bred quintet's high-energy live sets made them a popular attraction on the Greenwich Village club scene. Once they began making records, they quickly emerged as one of one of the earliest and most inventive exponents of the psychedelic sound. The band's 1966 debut album Psychedelic Lollipop and its 1967 followup Electric Comic Book, are two of that period's most beloved and enduring albums.--sundazed.com

Liner Notes
HERE IS THE DEBUT OF THE NEWEST AND MOST EXCITING GROUP IN THE LAST FIVE YEARS. THE BLUES MAGOOS REPRESENT THE BIGGEST SINGLE DEPARTURE OF CONVENTIONAL MUSIC FORM TODAY. THOUSANDS OF YOU WHO HAVE SEEN THEM PERFORM AND WHO HAVE MADE THIS ALBUM POSSIBLE, KNOW VERY WELL THAT THE BLUES MAGOOS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF THE NEW MUSIC REVOLU-TION. FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NOT AS YET EXPERIENCED THE "PSYCHEDELIC" SOUNDS, WE INVITE YOU TO LISTEN AND BECOME A PART OF THE RE-CREATION. THE BLUES MAGOOS STARTED OUT IN GREENWICH VILLAGE (NITE OWL CAFE) AND SOON HAD TAKEN OVER THE MINDS AND IMAGINATIONS OF THE CRITICS, POETS, WRITERS, ARTISTS, "GROUPIES", RECORD EXECUTIVES, DISK JOCKEYS AND EVEN MADISON AVENUE. THEIR FOLLOWING CONTINUES TO GROW IN SIZE, ABOVE GROUND AS WELL AS UNDERGROUND. WHILE PLAYING AT THE CHESSMATE CLUB IN DETROIT, RECENTLY, OVER 7000 PEOPLE CAME, IN JUST TWELVE DAYS, WHICH IS STAGGERING CONSIDERING THE CLUB'S CAPACITY OF 300. THE MAGOOS HAVE A HEAVY SCHEDULE OF CONCERTS, ONE NIGHTERS, A TOUR OF ENGLAND AND JAPAN TO KEEP THEM BUSY FOR THE NEXT SIX MONTHS. WE ARE ALSO BUSY PREPARING THEIR SECOND ALBUM, DUE LARGELY TO THE FANTASTIC SUCCESS OF THIS ONE. WE'VE CALLED THIS THE "PSYCHEDELIC LOLLIPOP" BECAUSE AFTER ONE TASTE YOU'LL BE WANTING MORE AND MORE AND MORE OF THE INCREDIBLE BLUES MAGOOS!!--BOB WYLD
