Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 [Box Set]

( 2 )

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Compiled by rock critic and future Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye, 1972's Nuggets was the anthology responsible for reviving interest in mid-'60s American garage rock. After the proliferation of specialized volumes with the Nuggets title by reissue label Rhino, this four-CD box set is intended as the ideal summation/expansion of the Nuggets concept. The first CD reproduces, track-by-track, the original 27-song Nuggets, while the other three CDs add what may be considered 91 bonus tracks, from the biggest-selling garage hits "Louie Louie," "Wooly Bully" to some cuts that only devout '60s specialists will know.

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Compiled by rock critic and future Patti Smith Group guitarist Lenny Kaye, 1972's Nuggets was the anthology responsible for reviving interest in mid-'60s American garage rock. After the proliferation of specialized volumes with the Nuggets title by reissue label Rhino, this four-CD box set is intended as the ideal summation/expansion of the Nuggets concept. The first CD reproduces, track-by-track, the original 27-song Nuggets, while the other three CDs add what may be considered 91 bonus tracks, from the biggest-selling garage hits "Louie Louie," "Wooly Bully" to some cuts that only devout '60s specialists will know. All important permutations of the mid-'60s garage style are present: primitive fuzz, folk-rock, horn rock, psychedelic dementia, protest rock, etc. Major heroes the Music Machine, the Seeds, the Shadows of Knight, the Electric Prunes, the Standells, the Sonics, the Chocolate Watch Band, and many others are all represented, often by more than one song. If it's possible to give a five-star rating with reservations, it's tempting to do so here. No one could have possibly satisfied all rabid garage collectors with a mere 118 songs, but that's not really the point here; the object was to provide a wide-ranging box set of '60s garage rock that would entertain, represent the considerable span of garage styles, and be massive -- yet affordable -- for the committed rock fan who nonetheless doesn't want everything. Rhino has succeeded, while also presenting the songs in the best possible quality in mono, whether from the master tapes or best existing copies. With a 100-page booklet of new liner notes Kaye's original annotation is also included, it is the best investment possible for those who thirst for more '60s garage rock than is available on the best single-volume compilations, with a track selection geared toward cream-of-the-crop quality and variety rather than narrow collector prejudices.

    Rhino's triumph

    This box set rocks! Remastering the original double LP into a single disc package would have been enough cause for celebration but Rhino does an excellent job creating 3 more discs that match the historical importance, invigorating sound, and interesting format of the first. Each disc contains well known tunes mixed in with not-so-well-known tunes and tunes very few have ever heard before (I'm sure some will know most of the tunes while some will be at a lost to find more than 3 songs they have heard before.) This format makes for a great listening experience. As soon as this listener started to become a little disinterseted in hearing another "unknown" song a more familiar or "hit" song entered the mix and kept the flow and energy of each disc right at the top. What a pleasurable change to hear songs from unknown bands that were trying to sound like the Beatles, the Stones, and Dylan during the heyday of the Beatles, the Stones, and Dylan rather than hearing their monumental influence on popular music years and even decades later. One more time: this box set rocks!

    Nuggets Brings Punk/Garage Sound Back to Life

    I caught most of these cuts on a Chicago station and the show was hosted by Bob Stroud. After hearing the real popular songs that were recorded by local Chi-town rock bands and a few popular national acts, I ran out a got the box set. The coolest thing is that there was an entire world of garage/punk bands during this era that we here in Chicago, didn't get to hear. Therefore, we were not familiar with the songs that they recorded. This was a great find. I have driven my kids nuts with the music. Each time that I play it, I like the sounds more and more. I recommend this box set to the avid fan from that era. Enjoy!
