Editorial Reviews

First released in 1972 on Elektra Records, the compilation is among the only various artists titles to consistently wind up on published lists of all-time top albums. Nuggets spawned more than 200 like-minded collections under such titles as Pebbles and Back From The Grave, and is a consistent compilation favourite and has carved out a genre of its own.

In the summer of 1976 a friend played for me two albums that forever changed my music collecting life. The first was "The Ramones" and the second was the Sire edition of "Nuggets" which is now Volume 1 of the amazing 4 CD set. Over the next 20 years I avidly collected every known American mid 60's band and have assembled a 2,000 plus collection of the "Nugget" bands plus all the vinyl compillation series that 'Nuggets" spawned such as "Pebbles", "Flashback', "Back from the Grave" etc.
This collection is hands down the finest single collection of mid 60's American Punk, Psycedelic and Garage bands both known and obscure. If the music appeals to you it will either become a fantastic starting place for futher collecting or if you are already a fan a perfect 4 volume summary with outstanding sound. Of course this set has the must have classics by the Elevators, Standells,CWB, Wailers etc. However, this set also has many songs thar are new to my collection and truly fantastic including "Journey to Tyme" by Kenny & the Kasuals and "Open up You Door" By Richard and the Young Lions.
Great liner notes by the people who originaly uncovered most of these songs including Lenny Kaye and Greg Shaw and great mono sound not artificial rechanneled stereo. A couple of missing songs such as the Moving Sidewalks "99th floor" ? & The Mysterions' "96 Tears", The Magic Mushrooms "I'm Gone" and The Grains of Sand "Thats when Happiness Began".
All in all perfection. Enjoy!!!! M

Nuggets was originally released in 1972 as a double album. It celebrated the garage rock music of the mid 60's with future Patti Smith guitarist Lenny Kaye providing dead-on liner notes. The band's featured on the album laid the blueprint for such bands as The New York Dolls, The Stooges and Patti Smith as well as the punk movement. The songs are no nonsense, crazed out rockers with some psychedelia and dance tracks thrown in. Rhino Records has done an amazing job expanding the original double album into a four cd set. Some of the songs like The Kingsmen "Louie, Louie", Sam The Sham & Pharaoh's "Wooly Bully", The Outsiders' "Time Wont Let Me", The Human Beinz propulsive "Nobody But Me", The Musical Explosion's "Little Bit O' Soul", The Count Five's "Psychotic Reaction", The Castaways' "Liar, Liar" were all top ten hits with The Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Incense & Peppermint" going all the way to number one. For the most part, the collection is made up of obscure songs that were minor national hits and regional hits around the country. Songs like The Cryan Shames' searing "Sugar & Spice", The Barbarians' earnest "Moulty", The Lollipop Shoppe's pulsating "You Must Be A Witch", The Sonics' "Strychnine", Kim Fowley's spooky "The Trip", Rare Breed's (who became American Breed and scored a top ten hit with Bend Me, Shape Me) r&b flavored "Beg, Borrow & Steal", Richard & The Young Lions' stellar "Open Up Your Door", The Bees' buzzing "Voices Green & Purple" and The Palace Guards' bubble gummy "Falling Sugar" are all basically unknowns.Read more ›

Format: Audio CD
The title of 'Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era, 1965 - 1968' would seem to imply that the four discs included are replete with classic acid-rock tracks. While there are a fair share of psychedelic numbers, when one lists this box set for sale on ebay, the genre is identified as 'garage & surf'. There are other genre's, such as mainstream pop and country-rock that also find space on these discs, so diversity is one triumphant chord for 'Nuggets'. The liner notes also reveal that the producers sought to cull material from the rich netherland of obscure, local releases which deserved better than they got in the highly competitive world of rock and roll in the glorious 1960's. I believe this set scores on all counts, and in fact only errs by digging too deep into the proverbial barrel, where some deserving dregs (thought to be nuggets) should still be residing. But even this miscalculation is forgivable, because most people will find they have a penchant for those tracks that were local to them in the late 1960's, rather than tracks that were only popular in some far off metropolis. Also, given that there are 118 tracks offered here (almost 30 per disc, on average), this ultimate compilation could never have completely pleased anyone. What it does do is to serve as a library, a cultural time capsule, encompassing the attitude, sound, and peculiarities of the hippie generation.

I categorized the 118 tracks into five groups. The easiest group to single out were the big hits. There are eighteen songs, pretty much evenly divided over the four discs, that charted at least number 17 or higher nationally, nine of them in the Top Ten. There is only one that rose to number one, and it isn't 'Louie Louie'. It's 'Incense and Peppermints'.
