Nuggets - Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era (1965 - 1968)
Nuggets is arguably one of the most influential compilation in rock history. Original released in 1972, it pulled together killer tracks from mid-to-late '60s America. In doing so, it identified the genre we now know as 'garage rock' and helped set the foundations for what was to become 'punk rock' a few years later.

Compiled by young rock critic Lenny Kaye (who would soon become known as Patti Smith's guitarist and right-hand man), Nuggets defined a mind-set that went on to influence punk, grunge, and subsequent generations of garage-rockers, from the Cramps to Nirvana to the White Stripes.

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Nuggets, Warner Music Australia has released 3 titles: Nuggets: Antipodean Interpolations of the First Psychedelic Era, Down Under Nuggets: Original Australian Artyfacts 1965-67 and this edition of the original collection that features the original 27 tracks remastered from the original analog album master, new liner notes by Lenny Kaye and a new introduction by Jac Holzman, owner of the Elektra label that originally released the compile.
