Friday Nuggets: "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" (The Blues Magoos)

This week's Friday Nugget is one of the signature songs of the era. The Blues Magoos were from the Bronx in New York City and had some minor hits, but a worldwide smash with "(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet" released as a single in 1967.  I especially love the Vox Continental organ sound and the crazy guitar runs.

Two versions, one with superior sound:

And another with live footage (and very bad lip synching):
