The Blues Magoos from the Bronx were one of the really first psychedelic bands of the mid sixties. Their first three LP's were along that vain of music and presentation. Then it all went south. The original band dissolved but the band's management got Peppy(the only original member) a contract at ABC records. The LP that followed was truly not the same band. Peppy took the sound to a Latin-Jazz-Blues based type of music. They made two LP's in this format and then again dissolved. OMO is that it is not a bad sound at all but maybe would have been a little more accepted if it had not been under the Blues Magoo's moniker.
