Where the Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968

Where the Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968, Rhino's 2009 sequel to their 2007 Nuggets box Love Is the Song We Sing, shifts the spotlight down the Californian coast, moving from the epicenter of the hippie universe in San Francisco to hipsville central in Los Angeles, the land where fringe-wearing folk-rockers strolled down the Sunset Strip alongside studio cats on the make. Both groups of hipsters are equally well-represented on Where the Action Is!, along with the teens raising a ruckus out in the suburbs and the stars who stretched out, all based on the sounds they heard coming from the Strip, the section of Sunset that serves as the fulcrum for this entire set. The compilers focus on a brief time, the four-year stretch from 1965 to 1968, where Los Angeles was overrun with dance clubs and nightspots, all giving bands as wonderful and distinct as the Byrds, Love, the Doors, the Seeds, Buffalo Springfield, and the Leaves places to explore, opening up avenues that others followed, either in music or spirit. Some of this filtered through the prism of the studio, where there were plenty of musicians infatuated with the sounds of Brian Wilson, who pops up toward the end on an alternate take of "Heroes and Villains," but there's also no denying the impact of hustlers and hucksters like Kim Fowley, or how Hollywood could package and polish all of this up in the form of the Monkees. All of this is here in bright, flashing neon on Where the Action Is!, which helps make it one of the liveliest of the Nuggets boxes, but also the one that seems to stray furthest from the series' mission to excavate unheard garage rock and psychedelia; after all, the Beach Boys, the Byrds, and the Doors are hardly unknown quantities or one-hit wonders. Yet, in its own way, Where the Action Is! is as crucial as any of the boxes that followed the first Nuggets set, for it documents a brief, shining moment in time where everything and anything seemed possible. It's not archeology, it's pop culture anthropology that does an excellent job of charting the rise of the L.A. underground, illustrating its first surfacing in the mainstream, connecting the dots in a fashion that may surprise even some dedicated pop and rock fans, those that might not realize how the Turtles, Bobby Fuller Four, the Standells, the Association, the Electric Prunes, Nilsson, Captain Beefheart. and Iron Butterfly were all connected, however loosely, or how Rick Nelson and Del Shannon got weird as the decade started to draw to a close. These connections, along with discovering dozens of gems from lesser-known artists, are the reason why Where the Action Is! winds up being a blast, as well as a revelation just like any other Nuggets set.

Where the Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets 1965-1968 4.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Alanrock More than 1 year ago
I think it is a tad disingenuous to say this would be a comprehensive recording of the L.A. Experience between 1965-1968 as there's quite a bit missing. Maybe they were more Folk or Country, but where is Larry Murray and Hearts and Flowers, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's first hit, "Buy for Me the Rain", Gentle Soul, The Peanut Butter Conspiracy, Spanky and Our Gang, We Five, and the first recordings of future "Outlaw" Steve Young? While its cool that there are recordings by Merry-Go-Round, by my cousin Mark Tulin and his Electric Prunes, and by the great Byrds and others, there's still quite a bit missing here. Hope the folks at Rhino will rectify it in the future. After all, Hearts and Flowers, if anyone, does deserve to be included in this compiliation.
gleyshull More than 1 year ago
Having come of musical age in SoCal during this time, this box set really resonates with me. All the ticket stubs, playbills, timelines, and, of course, tunes make a definitive picture of a time and place. Many of the songs I have never actually heard, but the echos amongst all of them reinforce what a fertile musical ground LA was (the most fertile in the country.) Highly recommended.

Who knew where the real "action" was back in the day? The day, of course, being that time when the Beatles ruled, London swung, psychedelia was weaving its insidious trail into every form of art possible, Golden Gate Park featured free music from the San Francisco new masters, New York had its own (Velvet) underground scene, and every band in LA (and for a hundred miles in any direction) wanted to sound like the Byrds and be as cool as (Arthur Lee's) Love. C'mon . . .take a walk on Sunset Strip, get a load of all these bands you may never have heard of, and wallow in more action than you will ever be able to comprehend. Plus, San Berdoo's own The Light and The Bush (Steve Hoard RIP) and the fabulous Garden Club with their unforgetabley trippy Little Girl Lost and Found (a track that I have on 45 that has haunted me for 42 Years). As the Standells used to say, "Try It!"
