Song Of The Day – 1/15/11

Song Of The Day – “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet” by Blues Magoos

Hailing from “Da Bronx” New York, The Blues Magoos were a garage rock band supreme formed in 1964 featuring Ralph Scala on vocals, Peppy Thielhelm on guitar, Ronnie Gilbert on bass, Mike Esposito on guitar and Geoff Daking on drums. Although they were marketed as a Psychedelic Band evidenced from album titles like “Psychedelic Lollipop” and “Electric Comic Book,” they really were a gritty, rough ‘n’ tumble garage band. They recorded many-a credible organ-infested version of rock and soul classics like J.D. Loudermilk’s “Tobacco Road” and James Browns “I’ll Go Crazy,” plus many original tunes. But by 1969, the original Magoos lineup went their separate ways.
