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
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'.Read more ›

This is a great compilation album. (I'm writing about the one-disc, 27-tune NUGGETS.) It is perfect for a long boring drive or a night in the garage with some loud speakers. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Phillip
A classy job on the artwork but the vinyl pressings here steal the show. Prior to this I had only heard the Nuggets album on the 1975 re-release but the quality of the new reissue... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Lee Wrecker
