Nuggets

Rock critic Lenny Kaye compiled a garage rock collection in 1972 that would become one of the most influential in history, paving the way for punk to come. The beauty of ‘Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era: 1965-1968’ was that it featured 27 virtually unknown acts, proving marketability doesn’t always rein supreme. This week marks the fortieth anniversary and Rhino is celebrating with a re-mastered reissue. In Australia, Warner has also delivered ‘Nuggets: Antipodean Interpolations of the First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968’. The release features current rock acts covering the originals, take a listen to Pearls cover The Standells ‘Dirty Water’ and The Laurels tackle The Thirteenth Floor Elevators ‘You’re Gonna Miss Me’.
