Product Description

Los Nuggetz is a collection of 1960s hyper kinetic garage, punk, pop and psychedelic music from Mexico, Spain and Latin American countries. While the inspiration for this collection has been the enduring trend and influence of American garage and psych bands from the 60s, it is our hope that this will serve as an introduction to the amazing variety of Mexican and Latin American rock from that era. This is the missing chapter in the global history of Rock & Roll. The, fuzz and fury of rock En Espanol with all the punk and pop elements that make it immediately listenable. Spanish interpretations of classic American and British songs that became popular around the world.

Much of this music has been extremely hard to find and often never reissued since the original vinyl release, with collectors combing record bins, garage sales, eBay with some actually traveling to the country of origin to find these vinyl rarities. Here it is in one comprehensive collection with super rare album covers for virtually every artist in this deluxe box.

In this spectacular collection, you will find unique interpretations of Wooly Bully , Hey Joe , You Really Got Me , These Boots Are Made For Walkin and that s just on the first CD. Javier Batiz s rendition of Tijuana Sun ( California Sun ) is a Latin classic You ll also be amazed at how many songs you recognize from their Spanish translations. The liner notes by Randall Wood are comprehensive and extensive and each track is annotated with the year of original release, group members, their instruments, super rare photos, LP jackets and background information on each group. You ll also enjoy station ID s and commercials, en Espanol.
This collection is meant as a portal to discover more from the artists you hear on these discs.. Here s hoping you dig it!

Nostalgia, uber hipster fodder or bleeding edge of the next trend? Remember when you would listen to baseball games on the Spanish radio station in class on your cheesy ear bud just to chuckle when the announcer would be clattering away in Spanish but you found something wonderfully off beat about when they would say the players names in English? This set is that mood on steroids. Punk is punk and inasmuch as this set is designed to give you a load of stuff you never heard or heard of, it has Latin bands covering Kinks, Hey, Joe , Wooly Bully and more, more, more, spread over 4 discs. The stuff that has had off beat collectors making Salvation Army a regular stop the way soccer moms make Starbucks a regular stop, this overwhelmingly, maddingly cool collection will have you standing apart from the pack as you blast it in your car with the windows down. Beautifully packaged in a little golden book sized book complete with kokopelis, death masks, wrestling masks and other cheesy artifacts, this is the kind of stuff that could drive some gringos as crazy as reggae drives other gringos crazy. When you see James Austin and Rock Beat on the same package, just grab it and don t worry about where the path leads. Once again, this is a serving of the finest in vinyl junkydom and your tour guides will not leave you humped and dumped in some strange back alley, in tub of cold water with your kidneys missing. This is a fun house, roller coaster ride of the first order --Chris Spector- Midwest Record

When I see Producer James Austin's name on a reissue album project I know I'm in for something unusual. Austin spent many years at Rhino Records producing "theme based" reissue box sets - often in unusual packaging (though sometimes hard to store) - many of which are still in my collection after 30 years. Austin left Rhino years ago and, with another Rhino veteran, Arny Schorr, helped found Rock Beat Records. To date most of their releases have been single or double CD albums. Though I may be wrong, this is the first multi-disc set with deluxe packaging and detailed liner notes.

The four disc set is packaged with the CDs stored in the front and back covers of a lavishly illustrated 70-page hardbound book. After the introduction by Austin, there are detailed track notes - by Randal Wood - and gorgeous color reproductions of the record sleeves or album covers. There are a whopping 101 tracks here, most, if not all, you have probably never heard before, unless you lived in South Texas in the 1960s and travelled to South America a lot during that time.
To get you into the mood, Austin starts of the album with an intro we all know by hear: "Ono! Dos! Tres! Quatro!....". Yep, it's "Wooly Bully", but not by Sam The Sham and the Pharaohs. This time it's in Spanish by Los Shain's. What follows are many more songs that we know in their English versions but are done here in Spanish by groups from Latin America (Mexico, Peru, Dominican Republic) and Spain. There's The Kinks' "You Really Got Me" , The Stones' "Satisfaction" and even Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walking" all done by local bands in Spanish. Austin always loved to insert "odd tracks" into his compilations so we are also treated to a Volkswagen commercial, and a few Spanish radio station IDs. --Steve Ramm- Amazon

Best set I've purchased in recent memory. Got the mp3 downloads, not the box set with physical media and a book. If you were somewhat disappointed by the fey Nuggets II box set (or it's penchant for later-sixties 'heavy' sounds), or the Children of Nuggets followup which documented recycled sounds sourced from big brother or big sister's record collection, you need Los Nuggetz as an antidote. As expected there's variety but its center of gravity is the gritty, joyful garage sound of the mid-sixties.

Probably half of this set is comprised of covers of sixties hits you know well. I stumbled across this collection while searching for "Aqui En Mi Nube", a delicious little cover of the Stones' "Get Off My Cloud". If I never hear the Stones' overplayed "Satisfaction" again it'll be too soon but the raw version here gives this song new life. You'll also find "Paint It Black" tucked away in here. I'd start listing some of the other songs you'd know but as soon as you hear the samples you'll be going, "Love Me Two Times", "96 Tears", "Tijuana (California) Sun", and so on.

One of the pleasures of these recordings is that old chestnuts are given new life. What you have here is what all of the most famous sixties hits would sound like if you stripped away the sheen of Abbey Road studios or the detailing and pinstriping that the top producers of the day put on their legendary hits. This is what the most famous acts of the rock era would sound like if they'd spent a few more years in the garage, in the clubs, at parties.

But what really puts this compilation over the top though are those thoughtful and entertaining touches, the inclusion of commercials and radio station IDs that provide a context for the times from which these songs come.

4 CD's housed in a wonderful hardbound book with full color scans, photos and authoritative text of "Latin American" 60's punk, pop and psychedelia". It's title is something of a misnomer as there are actually quite a few tracks by Spanish 60's bands as well (Los Salvajes, Los Bravos, Los Sirex etc). Regardless, it's an amazing collection of a variety stuff in Spanish from the 1960's from carbon copy British invasion covers, to Latin American Sonics impersonators to way out acid eating full blown psychedelia it's a delight from start to finish (with lots of amusing radio/TV commercials in Spanish from the 60's thrown in). "Nuggets II" scratched the surface on this genre with a few inclusions, this set digs up the treasure chest!

Lots of fun. An excellent and deep collection with a handful of commercials and radio promos. Besides some great music, it gives this lifelong Minnesotan a glimpse of life during the mid to late 1960's in southern California and all the parts of the country that could get those super powered radio stations from Mexico. Bonus: if you don't already speak it, learn Spanish by singing along with the music you grew up with.

Buy this 4 CD album. Everything about it is first rate, from its graphics and art work, to the meticulously researched background info on every group, to the performers themselves. The fact that nearly all of the songs are sung in Spanish will not detract from its enjoyment one iota. At least it didn't for me. There are tons of cover songs from the Stones to the Beatles to the Doors to the Four Tops (etc., etc., etc.). Some are note for note imitations while others are surprisingly fresh and revealing in their interpretations. The talent displayed here ranges from well meaning and enthusiastic to prodigious and impressive. I had no idea that such a large number of quality songs existed. Our Latin American brothers and sisters did 60's garage rock a huge favor by embracing it in such a talented and meaningful manner.
