If you're looking for a band to make you laugh, The Fugs are it. This is the Fugs First (and only) album and you won't be dissapointed (especially if you have a strange sense of humor). "Boobs-A-Lot" is the best song on the whole album, just absurd! "Nothing" is great and "Clarie June" is pretty great too. You will enjoy this.Was this review helpful?

You've heard of The Beatles, The Byrds, The Rolling Stones, and of Jimi Hendrix, but when you listen to the ''Fugs' First Album'', you will know that you have found the very tap root of all rock and roll music. The Fugs richly textured vocals and harmony in vocal style with their distinctly complex instrumentation cannot be surpassed by any of the above mentioned groups. The song ''We're the Fugs'' is an example of probably the greatest vocal harmony heard since the Gregorian Chants. The Fugs continue this epic journey and continue to intertwine their famous vocal and instrumental skills on one of my all time favorite hits of all time....''CIA Man''. F-N-Ay man. The Fugs tell it like it is in their full lyrical best. After you listen to CIA Man, you too will l have all the secrets divulged to you on how this most secret of secret organizations really do go about their business. ''The Ten Commandments'' is an ultra-religious epiphany into the the complex understandings of what Our Lord really meant when he gave them to us. I could write papes upon pages about possibly this greatest biblical interpretation of all time. Then there is the love lost broken heart pain inspired ''My Baby Done Left Me''. Here is all the heartbreak of the best Shakespearean plays combined with the pathos of a fine Italian opera. Yes! Combine the intellectual lyrics of Bob Dylan, the harmony and wit of The Beatles, and the imaginative mixes of Jimi Hendrix and Jimmy Page riffs and you still will not comprehend the Fugs music until you actually listen to the band that wrote all the rules for rock and roll music, and then broke them.Was this review helpful?
