A lot of you twenty-and thirty somethings out there probably think that psychedelic music was all swirling colors, flashing strobe lights, and intergalactic journeys of the mind. You would be wrong of course; all those sounds came later (mostly in the early seventies). Nope, early psychedelia was made with fuzzed-out guitars, Farfisa (or Vox) organ solos, and amps that were very small. In short, garage band music with a mindbending twist. (Think Very early Pink Floyd, such as "See Emily Play," rather than Dark Side of the Moon.) In his liner notes to the set, Greg Shaw does an outstanding job of linking these three-minute wonders to the punk and new wave movements of a decade later. Both proto-punk ("Dirty Water," "Pushin' Too Hard," and the Music Machine's wonderful "Talk, Talk"), and pre-new wave ("I Want Candy" and "The Shape of Things to Come") are well represented here. Also present are several selections from one-hit wonder soundalike bands, such as the Beatlesque Knickerbockers ("Lies"), the Byrd-like Leaves ("Hey, Joe", which was actually covered better by other artists), and, best of all, the Count Five, whose Yardbirds clone, "Psychotic Reaction" (complete with mini rave-up instrumental break) is not to be missed. One problem: Rhino Records have set the bar so high with this compilation, it's easy to start nitpicking. For instance, Love would be better represented with "My Little Red Book" than by the track offered here. And where are those all-time garage classics "Wild Thing," by the Troggs, and "Gloria" by Shadows of Knight (or by the Van-Morrison-led group Them)? These, however, are minor quibbles. Overall, Nuggets from Nuggets is good enough to make you want to race to your garage (or living room), clear out a space in the middle, and Start Dancing!!!
