Review: If a single compilation can be attributed to beginning the oldies revolution, it is easily the original 1972 double LP Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968. Compiled by Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman with assistance and input from guitarist and music historian Lenny Kaye, this deceptively haphazard 27-track aggregate became the cornerstone of the serious appreciation of '60s underground music. One important factor that unifies and likewise levels the playing field for all 27 sides chosen for the first run of Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968 is that they were all issued as singles. There are both US Top 20 charting pop hits - "Dirty Water" (Standells), "Liar, Liar" (Castaways) and "Psychotic Reaction" (Count Five) as well as several inspired sides that never made the Top 200. Each track is also given a brief bio, which was researched & penned by Kaye. His comments go beyond the facts & figures of the typical discography, relating to the music as the personal experience that it was.
