In 1965, the album charted on Billboard's "Top Pop Albums" chart. The album was originally released in 1965 as The Village Fugs Sing Ballads of Contemporary Protest, Point of Views, and General Dissatisfaction on Folkways Records before the band signed up with ESP-Disk, who released the album under its own label with a new name in 1966

The Fugs Second Album - Студийный альбом от The Fugs. В альбом вошло 20 треков. Продолжительность альбома: 01:12:47. THE FUGS- We're The Fugs. The Fugs - Slum Goddess (Live At Filmore East 1968). The Fugs - New Amphetamine Shriek HD. The Fugs - Kill For Peace. The Fugs - Saran Wrap (Live At Filmore East 1968). The Fugs - I Couldn't Get High (Live Filmore East 1968).

A loping, ridiculous, and scabrous release, the Fugs' debut mashed everything from folk and beat poetry to rock and rhythm & blues - all with a casual disregard for sounding note perfect, though not without definite goals in mind. Actually compiled from two separate sessions originally done for Folkways Records, and with slightly different lineups as a result, it's a short but utterly worthy release that pushed any number of 1964-era buttons at once (and could still tick off plenty of people).

The Fugs First Album is the debut album of The Fugs, released in 1964 and re-released in 1965. This album marked the birth of Alternative Rock as they were the first rock band who didn't operate in the mainstream but were more or less forced to work as an underground music act because of their subject matter. The Fugs were a bunch of thirtysomething beat poets who decided to start their own band. In a sense they could be categorized as Folk Music, because they covered poems by Algernon Charles Swinburne and William Blake and wrote anti-war protest songs. However, their songs were far more anti-authoritarian and politically direct than most folk protest singers of the time.

I had this album and The Fugs Second Album in the LP collection I inherited from my older brother who bought them when they were first issued.
