Friday Nuggets: The Brogues "(I Ain't No) Miracle Worker"

We've got an obscure but amazingly great one for you this week.  The Brogues were from Merced, California and recorded just 6 songs, all in 1965. "(I Ain't No) Miracle Worker" made it to the Nuggets compilation which I where I heard it. It's a perfect '60's garage song. Here you go:

The Brogues broke up shortly after this recording when Eddie Rodrigues joined the Army.  Two members, Gary Grubb (guitar) and drummer Greg Elmore, later formed Quicksilver Messenger Service.

"(I Ain't No) Miracle Worker" was covered by various other garage bands, including Chocolate Watch Band, The Barracudas, and The Chestefield Kings, bands you just very well might see here on a future Friday.
