Bloos Magoos

In January 1967, the Blues Magoos were at the top of the garage game. Their classic, “(We Ain’t Got) Nothin’ Yet” was Top 5 nationally; they had a hit album and nationwide TV exposure. But one year earlier, it was a different story. As the Bloos Magoos, their debut 45, “So I’m Wrong and You Are Right” / “The People Had No Faces” was completely ignored upon its release in January ’66. What a damn shame! “So I’m Wrong and You Are Right” is a tough protest lyric set to the Magoos’ short-lived folk-rock fixation. Also firmly in the same bag, “The People Had No Faces” is a weird, wonderful little nugget in the band’s catalog. On both tracks, Ralph Scala (Ralph Magoo) delivers up two of his most inspired lead vocals. Importantly, leading up to this lost session, a nascent Magoos hustled their way into regular work at the legendary Night Owl Café in Greenwich Village, the launch site for the Lovin’ Spoonful. For that Spoonful/Night Owl influence, look no further than the previously unreleased “Wild About My Lovin’" from that very same studio date featuring Zal-style reverb and the most sensationally trashy drums this side of the Spoonful’s appearance on The Big T.N.T. Show. Cut from the original Verve-Folkways mono masters, Sundazed is proud to showcase the Magoo' famously lost '65 session!
