This is probably a late 80s reissue. Also im curious if this is official,looking at the handcarved matrix numbers. The combi of that and the label makes alarmbells ring. Not sure on this one.

All within a few years, originally calling themselves The Trenchcoats, then The Blues Magoos, Bloos Magoos, and finally back to the Blues Magoos, where in 1966 I had no idea what the band's name meant, and still today there's no definitive answer to that enduring question. Yet there they stood against a psychedelic backdrop looking like The Rolling Stones on the cover of High Tide and Green Grass, looking wastefully cool, the Blues Magoos captured that same essence on Psychedelic Lollipop, and made an even deeper impression between the grooves ... colliding the past and the present with “I’ll Go Crazy,” a bluesy rockin’ hip cover of the James Brown song that let me dance into ecstasy, while the album’s classics, “Tobacco Row” and “We Ain’t Got Nothing Yet,” entertained an adventure that merged Kerouac’s mystical book “On The Road” with music, making me want to leave white suburbia behind, hit the road, and let the chips fall where they may.

Psychedelic Lollipop, undoubtedly one of the first albums to use the word psychedelic in the title, was filled with a new sound, one that was more distinctive, integrated, at times experimental, and seemed for all the world like a bit of stoner saturated fun. There were no pretenses here, and perhaps that was the Blues Magoos' greatest failing, they just wanted to push the boundaries in Beatlesque fashion without seeming to take it all seriously, and in doing so, here and with their following release Electric Comic Book, managed to lay down two of the most timely and enduring albums to emerge from the garage psych scene of those hazy days.

Don't even think about compact discs … this is a vinyl only experiment.

*** The Fun Facts: Rising out of the Bronx, New York in 1966, the band quickly became part of the Greenwich Village music scene, though their lineup was seemed constantly to be in flux ... Emil "Peppy" Thielhelm, vocals, guitar, Dennis LaPore, lead guitar, Ralph Scala, organ and vocals, Ronnie Gilbert, bass and John Finnegan, drums. Though by the end of 1966, Mike Esposito was brought in as their new lead guitarist, had gone to college with Lou Reed (of The Velvet Underground), and they began referring to themselves as the Bloos Magoos. Based on their talent, their record label groomed them for success, changed their name back to the traditional spelling, and Psychedelic Lollipop was released. Yet by the 1968 the band was already involved with in-fighting and the lineup changed: John Leillo played vibes, Eric Kaz was now on keyboards, Roger Eaton played bass and Richie Dickon became the drummer, and of course Emil Thielhelm holding down vocals and guitar, and released Never Going Back To Georgia, with the album being heavily influenced by an endless series of session musicians. With that, The Blues Magoos packed it in. Thielhelm took a role in the rock musical Hair under the name Peppy Castro. He later pursued a varied career as a member of Barnaby Bye, Wiggy Bits and Balance, while Cher and KISS are among the artists who have recorded his songs. Organist, Eric Kaz went on to form American Flyer.

It's always fun to play "We Aint Got Nothin' Yet" to die-hard Deep Purple fan.

The Blues Magoos, I suppose in the end, are viewed as 'one hit wonders' for their hit "We Aint Got Nothin' Yet", which I find curiously underplayed on good old "oldies' radio'.
The fact is, "Psychedelic Lollipop" is for the most part, a charming piece of trippy nostalgia. Before such ponderous works as Iron Butterfly's "Inagaddadavida" and the wretched excess that was Vanilla Fudge, psychedelic rock was actually FUN.
"We Aint Got Nothin' Yet" still sounds great, due to its killer guitar break. "Love Seems Doomed" foreshadows the dark music of the Doors.
My biggest kick on this lp is the band's psychedelic treatment of John D. Loudermilk's classic "Tobacco Road". Although dated by 'hipper' psychedelic standards, it's clear the band is having fun with the feedback. I could listen to this song for the rest of my life, while I am all but through with the Chambers Bros. "Time Has Come Today".
And the band takes David Blue's (just one of many 'Bob Dylan wannabes') "Queen of My Nights" and turns it into a mini folk rock masterpiece.
Less successful is the band's take on James Brown's "I'll Go Crazy". Probably best to leave James Brown to James Brown. Period.
"Sometimes I Think About" is a moody ballad full of white trash teenage angst. The rest of the tunes, "Gotta Get Away", "One by One", "Worried Life Blues" and "She's Coming Home" are no standouts, but merely capable pop music for its time.
The group's follow up lp, "Electric Comic Book" is more of the same, but much less fun. The group would have no more hits, but I still submit that "We Aint Got Nothin' Yet" is overlooked and this album is an underrated little gem.
