The Amboy Dukes

Release Year

First Release

Detroit's Amboy Dukes are best remembered for their 1968 acid-rock classic 'Journey To The Center Of The Mind,' as well as introducing the world to "The Motor City Madman", guitarist Ted Nugent. In 1965 young Ted formed a new band. He had heard of a Detroit group who had just broken up called Amboy Dukes and started using the name for his new Chicago band. 'The Amboy Dukes' was actually the name of a novel about gang members and their lifestyle. In later interviews, Nugent said that although many people have given him a copy of the book, he has never actually read it. This 1967 debut album has a fine mix of hard-rocking originals and individual cover tunes. Including some psychedelic numbers and a wonderful treatment of Big Joe Williams' blues classic 'Baby, Please Don't Go' which provided their first taste of chart success.
