On July 11 of 1968 I was turning 14 years old, and the single 'Journey to the Center of the Mind' was number one on my favorite AM radio station, WKNR ('Keener13') in my hometown of Detroit, Michigan. Of course 'The Motor City Madman', Ted Nugent, and his Dukes had a decided edge in their own backyard, but the single did rise to number 16 on the national charts also. I clearly remember that summer being deeply impressed by the quality guitar work on several hit songs. At the same time 'Journey...' was claiming the top slot in Detroit, the Stones' 'Jumpin' Jack Flash' was resting at number 11, and Cream's 'Sunshine of Your Love' had retreated to number 27. But it was Nugent's guitar heroics that dazzled the most. Fortunate for myself, my older brother was working at McDonalds, and had brought home a vinyl copy of this, the Amboy Dukes (annotated as 'The American Amboy Dukes' via a carrot insert on the cover) second album, for my perusal.

Ted Nugent named his band after an R & B outfit that had recently disbanded, saying "I thought it was a cool name". He was unaware that 'The Amboy Dukes' was also the title of a book about a 1950's street gang from Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Ted has also claimed to be unaware that the lyrics to 'Journey...' had stong allusions to psychedelic drug use, as does the collection of vintage pipes on the album's cover. I tend to believe Ted when he claims to have never inhaled. I also regard Nugent as being especially astute, and as a young man probably realized that using acid-tinged imagery would further the chances of success for a psychedelic rock band.

This Lp. shows the kind of regional-local talents around the USA that were pioneering hard rock music before the post Woodstock ultra-commercialization of the genre.While some of the songs may be a little sixties silly, the music, that is the playing, singing and arragements are quite good.It is great early hard rock without the "canned" sound formulated into so many bands since.(hey it's what most people want though)If you like heavy guitar/organ rock,this is an absolute must, and John Drakes powerful vocals are truly a huge part of the bands great sound.He left after the first 2 lps., and the band was never again as good, in my opinion.Ted Nugents guitar is perfect for the format they used as well.

Steve Farmer and Ted Nugent were certainly at their finest on this incrediable offering of mind-expanding psychedelia ! Although Ted has remained in the public eye, Steve Farmer has recently released another jem titled "Journey To The DarkSide Of The Mind" ! A must have !

Years ago I found a scratched version of this album in a second-hand store. The title sounded interesting and the cover was also somewhat controversial, so despite a poor state, I took a chance and bought the album. Several of the tracks could hardly play, but nevertheless, I somehow came to like the album quite a lot.

Later I sold the record to a collector who had not succeeded in finding a decent copy. Now many years later, I have bought the album on CD, and although not all numbers have aged with brilliance, I was not disappointed.

Amboy Dukes were predominantly guitarist Ted Nugent's project, but at this point rhythm guitarist Steve Farmer also a crucial role being the one who leads the album towards psychedelia.

Musically, there are more or less two styles of "fighting" to be the dominant. On tracks like "Mississippi Murderer," "Flight of the Byrd" and "Dr. Slingshot" Nugent shows his strong roots in blues, and demonstrates what excellent guitarist he is. You also feel a strong influence from European blues-rock and the likes of Jeff Beck.

Another part of the album's tracks is however strongly influenced by the psychedelic currents - both from Europe (Syd Barrett) and American (Jefferson Airplane). For me it is this part of the album which is really interesting. The title track is psychedlia when it's best - melodic and catchy.

The original side two is more or less a psychedelisk suite written by Steve Farmer. The numbers slide into each other and although the tunes are fine they are obviously intended as part of a whole.

I must also mention the fine Scottish-sounding instrumental "Scottish Tea" on which Nugent plays "bagpipe guitars". By the way, who was it who said that the Scots got their bagpipes from the Irish - but unfortunately did not understand the joke?

Ted carries the rest of the band through some mind blowing Detroit psychedelia.The vocals are really good too !This is right up there with the Stooges and the MC5 except there is no punk attitude in the Dukes. If you are a fan of Nuge and you sometimes need to defend his guitar playing well THIS WILL DO IT !
