The Blues Magoos sound less like psychedelic visionaries than a solid garage band with a taste for the blues on their debut album, Psychedelic Lollipopthough the lysergic reference of the title certainly put them ahead of the curve inwhen LSD was still obscure enough to be legal in much of the United States. The album leads off with the group's first and only major hit single, " We Ain't Got Nothin' Yet," and unlike most albums released by one-hit wonders of the mid-'60s, the single isn't the most exciting song here.
That honor goes to the Magoos ' cover of J. Loudermilk 's "Tobacco Road" which Lenny Kaye selected for his iconic garage rock compilation Nuggetsfeaturing some gutsy Cavatina (Theme From The Deer Hunter) - Richard Clayderman - Especially For You work from Mike Esposito and Emil "Peppy" Thielhelm and impressive organ swells from Ralph Scala as the tune leans into a major rave-up midway through.
Psychedelic Lollipop doesn't sound like the work of a great band, but certainly like one who were better than average, and considering how many bands who cranked out a single like " We Ain't Got Nothin' Yet" ended up making albums clogged with filler, it says a lot that even the weakest tracks here show this group had talent, ideas, and the know-how to make them work in the studio.
