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!
