I'll ride this groove a little while longer and put up a pretty good series, "Give 'Em The Boot", which features bands from Hellcat Records......Hellcat is headed by Tim Armstrong of Rancid, thus the name of the series (From the lyrics of the kick-ass Rancid song "Roots Radical". Again, fairly obscure stuff here (although there are appearances by Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, maybe a couple of other fairly well known acts).....Volume 1 was released in 1997, Volume 6 was released ten years later 2007.....apparently there is a Vo7, released in 2009, I do not have it, have never heard it, and cannot find it on Pirate Bay.....CALLING ALL FRIENDS OF THE BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll put up Volumes 1-3 tonight and Volumes 4-6 tomorrow, hopefully one of you kind souls has volume 7 that you will share with the rest of us. Interesting how much things have changed/remained the same on the scene over the ten year period. Volume 1, besides the aforementioned Rancid and Dropkick Murphys, has killer cuts from Voodoo Glow Skulls, Choking Victim, Skinnerbox, and Union 13's own version of "Roots Radical". Volume 2 adds Leftover Crack (just GOTTA love that name!), The Distillers (whom you should know!), and lots more, while Volume 3 adds a track from Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros. This is a very good set, fans of Rancid will flip over these somewhat-Rancid like acts, just listening to some random tracks from these (first three) discs today, and this shit rocks out as hard as I remember. Give 'em the boot, ya know I'm a radical!

Links be up when they be up, PLEASE if any of you FRIENDS OF THE BLOG are in posession of Volume 7 and are in a position to share it with the rest of us, please notify me in the comments section or via email......
Volumes 4-5-6 of "Give Em The Boot", featuring bands from Hellcat Records, once again, I will say that ALLEGEDELY there is a Volume 7, I cannot seem to locate it if it does exist. Anyway, a lot of the bands better known (Rancid, Dropkick Murphys, Distillers), and lesser known (Hunns, Slackers, Tiger Army) that peppered the first three discs appear throughout these volumes as well, along with new additions, such as Westbound Train and Los Difuntos......a good set, in particular fo fans of Rancid and bands influenced by them to varying degrees. Should have something else tomorrow, don't know if another obscure punk comp or not, really no idea, so just check and we shall see.

Should get the links up with no problem, unless of course there is a problem.....Enjoy a weekeend filled witht he year's best sporting event, the NCAA basketball tournament.....it is odd that I am not nearly as big a fan of college hoops as I am of say, the NFL or MLB, but the NCAA hoops tourney just works so perfectly, it is thrilling television......GO BUCKEYES!
Quite a rare LP (double LP actually), not a lot of rare music on it......but a rare find nonetheless. Back in the 1970's, if you loooked on the dust sleeve of Warner Brothers/Reprise albums, they would advertise what were called "Loss Leaders", which were 2 record sets of absolute mishmashes of stuff from the lable.....I still have a couple of em, man......you could slip one on and hear (this is without looking it up) Black Sabbath, Martin Mull (really), Flo and Eddy, T Rex, Bert Jansch, Seals and Croft, the Faces......ANYONE on the lable could pop up. The price at the time: two mere US dollars....I used to get em, and I did discover some interesting stuff on them. Quite a bargain, 2 discs for 2 bucks, postage included, as long as you understood you were just receiving a handful of random tracks.
Worth it, maybe, for the live Pistols and the Urban Verbs stuff, nothing else really unusual here, basically I'm putting it up there as bait, hoping someone has the Urban Verbs (please please please, very good, very Talking Heads-like)......anyway, these are taken from the original vinyl, this is really nothing special, just remembering the Warner "Loss Leaders" (they really WERE doing a good thing, exposing us to some new stuff for pennies), making available these rare live Pistols cuts, and also hoping SOME "friend of the blog" has some Urban Verbs.
DISC 1-01 THE SEX PISTOLS-Anarchy in the USA (live)/02 URBAN VERBS-Subways/03
ROBIN LANE & THE CHARTBUSTERS-Until Tomorrow/04 WIRE-Map Reference 41 N 93 W/05 MARIANNE FAITHFUL-Working Class Hero/06 JOHN CALE-Temper/07 URBAN VERBS-The Only One of You/08 GANG OF FOUR-Damaged Goods/09 WIRE-I Should Have Known Better/10 MODERN LOVERS-I'm Straight/11 DEVO-Social Fools/12 PUBLIC IMAGE LTD-Public Image

Not my greatest post, I know, just was thinking about the Urban Verbs for some reason (they've been on my "wanted" list for some time now), we'll see what we can come up tomorrow.
version as the one on the original LP IMO.
Side two of the first record is MUCH better....The (Great) Members "Offshore Banking Business", a smoking "We Got the Beat" from the Go Go's, perhaps the entire set's highlight with Athletico Spizz '80's great "Where's Captain Kirk" (TREMENDOUS song, also a great performance), and also Steel Pulse's phenominal reggae "The Ku Klux Klan".......it's a good side.
Devo leads off side 3 with a positively smoldering version of "Uncontrollable Urge", about 5 times better than the studio original. We get a good track from Echo & the Bunnymen, and a fantastic perfromance from the Au Pairs ("Come Again", great song and a great performance of same). Joan Jett turns in an energetic "Bad Reputation" which, again, is somewhat diminished by the word FUCK being censored.
Side 4 has some fairly lame performances from Gang of Four and 999, but the great X turn in a smoldering version of (already a great song) "Beyond and Back".
This is a decent album for fans of the era/genre, as I said I don't know if it's ever even been released on CD.....the film is pretty good as well. Nothing world changing here, but some pretty good tracks, career highs, maybe, even, for Athletico Spizz '80 and The Members. The Devo track also shows how rocking surprisingly, they could be on stage.
Hope you enjoy it guys, milking the era for all it's worth!

Man, how I loved this album back in the 1980's, at least the good parts......if you run across the DVD version on line, I recommend it.......but I think you'll enjoy, at least the highlights of these discs, Devo, the Go Go's and the Members never sounded better, maybe we could say the same for Wall of Voodoo and Athletico Spizz 80.......the 1980's are LONG GONE folks, but SOME of the music, sort of, lives on!
You know the drill.....links will be up when i get them up! Hopefully on MOnday Morning, Zippy willing.....again, "Welcome to the working week, I know it don't thrill ya I hope it don't kill ya".....it won't come August because I will be at least eligible to retire......we shall see what happens!
Gonna step back for a little while, I've got some bigger fish to fry on my table (?) right now......not sure how long I'm going to be away for, just have to get a few things straightened out. Enjoy all the stuff that is still avaialble, and please leave any requests that you may have. I'll be back soon. Me and Vida have some stuff we gotta get worked out.
Phenominal series of psychedelia from all cornres of our globe, 5 today, 5 tomorrow (or so).....if you are a fan of pscyh-rock, this is one of the better series EVER released in the genre (sometimes the more obscure psych bands kind of, well, you know, suck)......there is a LOT of good stuff here, a lot you probably haven't heard before, mixed in with a few well known acts. It's a GREAT series, don't know if fans of all the recent punk comps will agree, but all ya need to do is DIVERSIFY your tastes
so that they are as broad-based as my own!
OK, there are ten volumes in this series, give ya the first five today I guess and the second five tomorrow or over the weekend sometime....First up we have a set of acts from the good ol' US of A.....Damned obscure stuff, maybe you are familiar with Victoria, or Hunger, of Hickory Wind......but everything here is fairly unknown and fairly un-comped elsewhere. Volume 2 focusses on Latin America, Again, you may know Los Dug Dugs (in fact I profiled them on this blog a while back) and of course Kaleidoscope is moderatly well known, but dig into the REST of these unknown gems as well.
This series is no joke and if you are a fan of 1960's-70's psychedelic rock, RUN, don't walk, to collect them all.....the next installment of the blog will feature acts from Brazil, Mexico, Africa, Turkey, and Chile, and, to my surprise, according to Wikpedia, there are MORE planned volumes in the series (Scandanavia, Italy, Germany)....personally can't wait (if true).....this is a FINE series, one of the best EVER of obscure psych and I recommend it HIGHLY to any lover of that great genre.
By the way, the model on ALL the covers is Cheryl Shrode, who appeared in Playboy in 1967.

NO IDEA why.....calling on "friends of the blog" for possible help with these last 5 tracks.....hoping so, maybe I can find them too.....but I will list them nonetheless.....14-LADIES WC-People/15 MODULO 1000Lem-Ed-Eclag/16 LOS MAC'S-Degrees/17 THE PEPPER SMELTER (ST THOMAS)-Betty Boom/Little Monster/Doggie and Peggie at the Witch's Castle 18 LOS DUG DUGS-It's Over

VOLUME 5-BRITAIN-01 RED DIRT-Memories/02 GARY WALKER & THE RAIN-Magazine
Really good set, I'd advise ya to grab it!
In many ways similar to the punk "Bloodstains" series, this fine set of psychedelia gives "flavor" to each individual corner of the world that it takes on. Yesterday we saw the first 5 albums of the set, today the remaining five.......Lots of tracks to list so commentary at a minimum.
Volume 6 features acts from Brazil.Not a lot of TERRIBLY familar names, you should, I guess, know Sound actaory and Os Brazos, lots of other unknown gems here though. Volume 7 goes for music from Mexico, Los Dug Dug's (featured n an earlier edition and once profiled on this blog) check in, as well as Kaleidoscopeafter those, these are fairly unknown to must but the HARDEST CORE psych fans out there. Volume 8 is possibly my favorite album in the set, (and I like them all), psychedelia from AFRICA! Featuring of courses the tremendous Otis Waygood Band (I should profile them sometime they really are great), Suck, and of course Chrissy Zebby Temb & Ngozi Family.....I really love the sounds on this one. VOlume 9 takes us to Turkey, where of course Erkin Koray gets a turn, he's the only REALLY well known one, but this has as unique a sound as any on the set. Finally, we have Chile.....Agaturbia is likely the best known band here, but it is a good set as well. Links probably not until sometime on Saturday.

Well, haven't been able to put up daily posts with some other issues going on, but the "Peace, Love, and Poetry" series was quite well recieved. , if obscure psych comps are your thing, I have more of them than I'd probably be able to put up in my lifetime.......might as well put a few up until I get bored with them.
This series, released by U-Spaces (You may recall U-Spaces from the classic "Psychedelic Radio Spots and Promos" series I put up so very long ago), is quite good, lots of totally obscure stuff mixed in with some semi-well known tracks. Really good set, 10 discs and not skimpy, each disc is crammed (always irritates me when a ten disc set would have fit on six discs)......
Five discs today, I'll TRY to get the other five up tomorrow. To touch briefly, Disc one has the little known and WAY cool "The Lottery" by (wait for it) Rochelle Rosenthal & the Kickball Queen...Kim Fowley's track is sufficiently well known as that it could have been omitted, but the less-known-than-they should-be Neal Ford and the Fanatics add a fine track. Perhaps you are familar with Aphrodite's Child, Sound Sandwich, or the Gregorians, among others, from other comps of this ilk, but the overlap between them is inevitable.
The track lists below should make obscure psych-
DISC 1-WEST COAST NATURAL GAS-A Favor/02 ROCHELLE ROSENTHAL & THE KICKBALL QUEEN-The Lottery/03 SANDALS-House of Painted Glass/04 KIM FOWLEY-Strangers From the Sky/05 AORTA-Strange/06 AMERICAN BLUES-Say So/07 MARY MAIDEN-The Scarlet Letter/08 NEAL FORD & THE FANATICS-Mary Wanna Marry Me/09 THE DAVID-People Seeing, People Saying/10 THE CHOSEN FEW-The Earth Above, The Sky Below/11 THE MASS-Raining Sorrow/12 HOT WATER-Reaction/13 WEST COAST NATURAL GAS-Go Run and Play/14 NATURAL GAS-Sunny Days/15 JEFFERSON LEE-Pancake Trees/16 SOUND SANDWICH-Zig Zag News/17 GROUNDSPEED-I-12 East/18 APHRODITE'S CHILD-Magic Mirror/19 GREGORIANS-Dialated Eyes/20 CHAPTER IV-Oracle/21 STONEHENGE-Desiree/22 MIND GARAGE-Asphalt Matter/23 THE RAK'S PROGRESS-Why Did You Rob Us Tank/24 LAYNE MARTIN JR-Suburban Lament
DISC 3-RADIO PROMO SPOT-The Trip/02 VELVET SEED-Flim Flam Man/03 FLOWER POT-
DISC 5-01 BUMPS-Ode to a Toad/02 COSMIC BROTHERHOOD-Sunshine World/03 DELICATE
The second five discs of this ten disc set, loaded with obscure psychedelia.....this is a good set, as I
As we pop in Disc 6, most of the better known stuff here are acts that popped up in the first 5 discs of the set, (West Coast Natural Gas, Flower Pot, etal), newcomers of interest include The Human Touch's weird cover of the already weird "Sally Go Round the Roses", The Ravens, The Dave Miller Set, among lost of other stuff that I had no knowledge of prior to this set. The Wailers turn up on disc 7, as well as unknowns (well, to me, anyway) such as City Zu, The Fringe, and Grant's Blueboys whom I list here simply as a tribute to my son Grant. Disc 8 plunges off into TOTAL obscure-o land, I don't even (at a glance) think it includes anyone from the earlier discs)....I knew of Crotchfield Doughnut Ring from other comps, but
Ipsissimus? Biddu? Guardians of the Rainbow? Out there, which is what we're looking for.
Disc 9 has another Neal Ford track, this time as Neal Ford Factory (Ford probably appears more on
this set than anyone else), and the set continues the trend of strange, quite obscure stuff such as Frisco Mint, Lightmyth, The Roosters........unknowns except to the most fanatical of obscure psych junkies.....the final disc is more of the same, lots of acts that are new to the set such as Dr T & the Undertakers, Baron Daemon & the Vampires, and Chicago Loop.
Let me know what you think of these and where we want to go from here, because if you wan MORE of this type of thing I can literally bury you with it.

OK....I am sorry, I CANNOT get Zippyshare to upload Discs 7.8. and 10 of U-Spaces Psychedelic
Archaeology....CANNOT. Been trying for days. I have FOUR Zipyshare accounts, in general, when one of them won't upload something, another will, but in this case it seems destined not to happen. I'll try to upload SOMETHING ELSE and then GO BACK and see if I can get the "problem" discs to upload. I'm truly sorry, really I am, hopefully eventually we can get this resloved so everyone can have the full set.
Got a magnificent set today, very underappreciated, the four-disc "Children of Nuggets" set....fully titled "Children of Nuggets, Original Artyfacts from the Second Psychedelic Era, 1976-1996" it picks up where the original "Nuggets" left off. I'll touch on some highlights but this is as great a set of modern day psychedelia as one could hope for. I REALLY don't think it was appreciated much at the time of it's release, but how on earth could you NOT lov this?
Disc two brings us such stallwarts as Dream Syndicate, The La's, Mickey & the Milkshakes, Teenage Fanclub, as well as a bunch of holdovers from Disc 1 (Dukes, Soft Boys, Lyres).....another great disc (24 tracks).....on disc three we are treated to The Fuzztones, Bangs, Screaming Trees, Tell-Tale Hearts, Miracl Workers, and Plasticland, how is THAT for an all-star lineup? Finally disc four brings us the Chesterfield Kings, StiRays, DMZ, the Mummies, the Barracudas and a WHOLE LOT more.

(Assuming I can get it uploaded of course), let's here your thoughts on this set.....I think that it is a timeless piece that is a "future classic" if you will. I have the Nuggets II set as well, with "Nuggets" from other countries, and the eight-disc internet creation "Mega Nuggets" that is beyond awesome...."Love Is the Song We Sing" was another box set installment, featuring all West Coast acts......name your poison, really, I love this stuff and who wouldn't. But, I think that while MOST of the rest of ALL of the "Nuggets" comps kind of fall into line, this one, to me, is a unique standout......I think it's a brilliant work, let me know if I am right or full of shit.
AGAIN, I apoligze for Discs 7, 8, and 10 of "Psychedelic Archaeology"......I'll try it again after I get THESE up......you also may try the Torrent link I posted in the comments section of that post, personally, I ahve no idea if it is live or not, but I am spinning MY wheels with the thing, so give it a whirl.
Until next time, I love you all of course!
Since little Josef has made his displeasure with the Nuggets series clear, I think it's only fair that the next direction I take this blog in is to UPLOAD EVERY GODDAMN NUGGET COMP I HAVE, and maybe little Josef will hold his breathe until he turns blue. And, I have a BUNCH OF THEM:
Today, I am trying to make one last swing at getting the final three discs of Psychedelic Arcaeology up, so no new post today, but if you LOOOOOVE some Nuggets, here is what is in store for ya in the near future (sorry Little Josef)......well, we could begin with the original Lenny Kaye Nuggets (I bet Josef can't STAND Lenny Kaye), actually the expanded, four disc box set......we could follow THAT up with the fab "Nuggets II, Original Artyfacts from the British Empire and Beyond" (note to Josef, this means countries OTHER THAN the USA), which is also 4 discs......maybe after that, I put up a couple of discs I made myself from the Rhino Nuggets vinyl series, featuring tracks from those albums that didn''t make the box sets. And THEN, what about the internet creation (I THINK it was created by the legend that is Chris Goes, someone sent it to me long ago, an unofficial 8-disc mammoth that myself and my friends have always called "Mega Nuggets". Certainly wouldn't want to forget the four disc "Love is the Song We Sing" (San Francisco Nuggets), or "Where the Action Is" (Los Angeles Nuggets, also four discs), and then, AFTER THAT, if Josef is still suffering in agony, perhaps we'll get to the THIRTY SOMETHING DISC "Pebbles" set, the "Rubble" set, the "Boulders" set, maybe "Psychedelic States", "Acid Visions", "Chocolate Soup For Diabetics", "Cicadelic 60's", "Circus Days", "Couloured Sites and Sounds", "Echoes in Time", "Elecric Lemonade Acid Test", "Endless Journey", "Exploiting Plastic Inevitable", "Fading Yellow", "Fuzz, Flakes, and Shakes", "Gathering of the Tribe", The "GS Japanese Psych-Garage Collection", "Hen's Teeth", "Highs in the mid-sixties", "Incredible Sound Show Stories", "Lost 60's Delights", "Mayhem and Psychosis", "Nederbeat (DUTCH Nuggets!)", "Never Ever Land", "Nightmares From the Underworld", the enormous "Prae-Kraut Pandemonium", "Project Blue", the fine internet series "Psych Crackle Pop" (19 Discs), "Psychedelic Crown Jewels", "Psychedelic Disaster Whirl", "The Pschedelic Experience" the "Psychedelic Instrumentals" series, "Psychedelic Microdots", "Psychedelic Pstones", "Psychedelic Schlmeils", "Psychedelic Unknowns", "The Calico Wall" series, another fantabulous internet creation, "Sir Psych Presents"(Currently around 50 discs), "Side Trips", "Tekites", "Texas Flashbacks", "The Perfumed Garden", "The Psychedelic Years Revistied", "Tobacco A Go Go", "Turkish Delights", the many MORE U-Spaces comps such as "California Love In" and "San Francisco Nights", among others, maybe a re-post of that 8 disc U-Spaces "Psychedelic Radio Spots and Promos" set, ANOTHER cool internet creation, the 25-disc "Vinyl Garage Underground", "Visions of the Past", "We Can Fly", and maybe after we get past all THOSE multi-disc sets, we can get around to some single disc Nugget/psych stuff such as "My Mind Goes High", "Journey to a Higher Key" (SITAR psych! yeah!), "Growing Slowly Insane", and oh, I don't know, I'd estimate maybe 3 to 4 hundred more......so, ya see, Josef, old boy, I do know a TINY bit about the music of this genre.....and the fact that my posting it irritates you is, in itself, "music" to MY ears.....
Will I post ALL of those comps listed above? Probably not likley, unless, 1) I am overwhelmingly URGED by the minions to do so, or 2) Josef continues to complain that the bands HE likes aren't on the albums I post (IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, I HAVE TO point out that Josef ACTUALLY THOUGHT THAT I PERSONALLY programmed/created "Children of Nuggets!" Let's all put on out thinkin' caps and ponder THAT one.
Anyways, in all seriousness, Josef aside what do ya think? Do ya WANT for me to go in this direction for a little while? There is some great stuff on these albums, lots of overlap of course, but a lot of hard to find gems as well......I deliberatley tried to be tedious/monotonous while listing all of them (to irritate Josef) but all of those ARE available for upload, as well as the 3-4 hundred that I didn't mention......I know, also, that this stuff is kind of divisive, you either can't get enough (me), or you really aren't THAT much into it, and prefer my posts of great punk, or great metal, stoner, glam, whatever....and either way that is fine (UNLESS you complain about it, ala our buddy)......
So, rant over, (well, not quite, ONE MORE TIME: THIS GUY THOUGHT I PERSONALLY PROGRAMMED AND CREATED "CHILDREN OF NUGGETS"!!!!!!!!!), I THINK I may have at least temporarily resolved the upload problems, and personally, I'm up for some Nugget-rock for the next week? Two weeks? Month? You guys tell me......pick from the list or come up with your own, I think I AM going to do some of it for a while, so PLEASE let me know what you want, and also when it starts to get excessive and you're ready for my MAMMOTH "Complete Story of the Clash" post I've been working on (it will be awesome, probably two weeks of virtually every note they ever recorded).....see ya tomorrow with
I'll put em here rather than with the original post since it's been such a long time.....I'm sorry it took so long, but here they are at least. Hope you enjoy them.
All kidding aside, NOT an attempt to irritate anyone (I've beaten that dead horse enough, and IF the
offended party will just drop it, I will as well), "Nuggets" the original two disc set compile by Lenny Kaye in the early 1970's, was probably THE most important, infuential, and significant compilation ever.....it brought into focus the wonderful amatuerish sounds of my childhood, sounds that I loved even as a small child, and continued to influence my tastes now that I am in my 50's. When Rhino re-released the original two disc set on CD, along with three OTHER CD's of more of the same greatness, it was a wonderful service that they did the world....now, I am assuming that most of you who are fans of this genre already have this. I am guessing VERY little interest in this set, actually, for that reason.....but I AM feeling a bit of a "Nuggets" trend coming on with me for the next week or so, and this is the logical starting point......if you are NEW to "Nuggets" please share youthoughts, positive or negative.
Disc one, which consists of the tracks from the original two disc vinyl (I am tempted to use my vinyl copy, but not going to.....would be even more appropriate if I did, though)....wow. Great stuff. The Electric Prunes "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night"....I remember the first time I heard it at about the age of 7, being freaked out by it and thinking the lyric was "too much to DRINK"......anyway....."Dirty Water" by the Standells is an all-timer (did ya know the "frustrated women" lyric allegedly refers to the curfew instituted by Boston College?....and how about that reference to "the Strangler"?)......"Lies" by the Knickerbockers is perhaps the most perfect Beatles cop EVER, and we could say the same about Mouse's "A Public Execution" and Bob Dylan. "Liar Liar" by the Castaways is a classic, as are "Don't Look Back" by the Remains, "Psychotic Reaction" by Count Five, " "Tobacco Road" by Blues Magoos....and, really, that's about a fourth of it.
The subsequent discs are not QUITE as great as the original (how could they be?), but disc two leads
off with the classic "Talk Talk" by Music Machine (unbeleivable that Kaye missed that on the original), includes great tracks like Kenny & the Kasuals "Journey To Tyme", "Action Woman" by the Litter, Chocolate Watchband's snarling "Sweet Young THing", "Steppin' Out" by Paul Revere & the Raiders, and another should-have-made the original set "Little Girl" by Syndicate of Sound. Again, I have barely scratched the surface.
More excellent stuff turns up on disc two, "Let it Out" by the Hombres, "Psycho" by the Sonics, Unrelated Segments "The Story of My Life", The Amboy Dukes "Journey to th Center of the Mind".....lots more, but after a while I'm just listing tracks, and the COMPLETE track list will appear below, so I'll keep it to a minimum. The final disc includes the tremendous "Are You Gonna Be There" by Chocolate Watchband, "Louie Louie" by the Kingsmen, "Complication" by the Monks, Other Half's essential "Mr. Pharmacist", and tons more.
If this stuff is not for you, it's not for you. It IS, however, for ME, and I'm going to put up a good bit of it over the next week or so.......as I said, I don't expect a HUGE response to THIS one, as I'd expect most people who are interested would already own it, but you never know. But, it seemed like a logical starting point (actually my "starting point", I suppose, was "Children of Nuggets", but like most everything else I did it ass backwards.)
Feedback, please and see YESTERDAY'S post for a partial list of the HUNDREDS of "Nuggets"-

OK, continuing down this road........this is an eight disc set, an internet creation. Someone sent it to me years ago under the name "Mega Nuggets", which is at least fitting if not the "official" title, ifit even has one. I THINK, could be wrong but if my memory serves me, this was a huge torrent created by internet music LEGEND Chris Goes Rock (in the days before he created some of the VERY best music-share blogs to ever grace the web.....if I'm right, thanks Chris, you are damn near a GOD to me, if I have it wrong, well, Chris is STILL damn near a God to me, and why not patronize his latest (great, as all the rest of them were as well) blog right HERE http://dirtyfunky.blogspot.com/, his blog has featured MANY MANY great, rare albums in many genres, and his knowledge of music is to a five-star gourmet restaurant as mine is to a Health Department casualty White Castle. So I HOPE I'm
right and this was originally HIS creation, I give him full credit.
Disc 1's more obscure tracks come from (at random, there are 33 tracks) The Bad Boys, The Buddahs, The Daybreaks, and the Dave Heenan Set, among better known stuff from the (Nuggets overlapping) Golliwogs, We the People, Zakary Taks, and Kim Fowley, does include a couple interesting radio promos including one with the Electric Prunes.
Disc 2 brings us Granny's Intentions, Kubla Kahn, Illwind, even Dino, Desi, and Billy....agains, some Nuggets-overlap, but not much, and most is sufficiently obscure as to be treasured.
On Disc 3, we ge The Mickey Finn, The Jaguars, Lexington Avenue Local's version of "Along Comes Mary", Shane, and Turquoise, among the frequently-comped Zakary Taks and Blue Things, again, a potential treasure chest for Nugget archeaologists.....and on Disc 4, The Koobas, John's Children, The Mojo Men, and more......even the more frequently comped acts here are, in general, represented by less than their most well-known efforts.
OK, feedback please, minions, as I've said before I can keep em coming as long as there is a demand.....four more discs completes THIS set tomorrow, and if you enjoy it, please thank Chris Goes Rock at his blog, linked above, I am ALMOST certain he created it (if he DIDN'T, you will still enjoy his wonderful blog!)

Continuing on the path of the obscure and the semi obscure, I give you the second four discs of the internet-only comp, titled (by me) "Mega Nuggets"....as I said before I beleive this was originally a Torrent creation of Chris Goes Rock, whose latest of his great blogs can be found here....
http://dirtyfunky.blogspot.com/, please check it out and patronize it, it is stellar as were all of his previous blogs. Anyway this set, contained 8-discs total, a BIT more obscure, for the mot part than
the "standard" "Nuggets" but still worthwile 100% for Nuggets fans.....
Disc 5 brings us some repeaters like Kim Fowley, Blue Things, and the Thingies, all of whom have made multiple appearances here, as well as Cuby & the Blizzards, Yesterday's Children, Bob Seger & The Last Heard, and plenty more......Disc 6 has a bunch more tracks by the Morning Dew who I think dominate this comp more than anyone, also the Nickle Bag, The Continentals, The Outer Limits, and the Headstones.
Disc 7 gives us The Lemon Drops, the Lemon Fog, The Pagens, Smokin' Bananas, and Carol's Mood (by now we are pretty far away from "original Nuggets" turf and into the land of true obscuritos, some may like (I hope) and I fear some may not......often, more historical curiosities than something you'd enjoy listening to repeatedly.......anyway, the finale, Disc 8, brings back a bunch of acts from earlier discs, sucsh as Barracudas, Lemon Fog, The Kreeg, Nickle Bag, and a bunch more.
A LOT of people requseted this set, I know their are Nuggets junkies who would want and accept

Nuggets #2, or "Original Artyfactas From the British Empire and Beyound", if you prefer, was the
follow up to the "original" four disc box, "Nuggets", featured right here just a few days ago.....much the same concept, amatuerish, arty, somewhat-psychedelic singles, only from around the world, not exclusively the USA ala the original.....I must say, there is a good bit of overlap here with the "Mega Nuggets" set of the past few days, if you rpogram the whole thing yourself, you may be better off, depending on whether you want actual copies of the releases, or just pure, non-overlapping listening pleasure..
God, I remember this set for one huge reason.....it was in the pre-Bit-Torrent days and I had to put it together, basically a track at a time, from Winmx or AudioGalaxy or whatever of those ancient services I was using at the time......got it done though, anyway, and was always proud of that effort, recreating a four disc et one track at a time........those were the days? No, not really.....
Disc three brings us, among lots more, "Who Dat" by the Jury, Status Quo's fab "Pictures of Matchstick Men", "It's My Pride" by the Guess Who, and "Cry In the Night' by Q65......fianlly Disc four gives us the Pretty Things legendary "Rosalyn", The Mops (from Japan) "I'm Just a Mops" (I should do an all-Mops post sometime, it would be great), Blossom Toes "When the Alarm Clock Rings", Os Mutantes "Bat Macumba", and The Zipps "Kicks and Chicks"
This is a good set.....as long as we are muddling around this genre, overlap will be something of a

Next four disc set we have fromm the Nuggets library features the sounds of San Francisco, some fair-to-good shit here, but the way-hippie stuff is a little outside my realm, in general......anyway, there
Disc one (sub-titled "Seismic Rumbles") feautres a pre-Grateful Dead Warlocks, pre-Jefferson Airplane Great Society, also the "real" Jefferson Airplane, tracks from Country Joe & the Fish, Quicksilver MEssenger Service, The Grass Roots, but also some dregs (in my opinion) of the era such as Sons of Champlain and Sopwith Camel.....all in the eye of the beholder I guess.
Disc Three ("Summer of Love") features the ridicuolously over-comped "Summertime Blues" from Blue Cheer , but also Moby Grapes magnificent "Omaha", a stirring live veresion of "Down on Me" from Big Brother & the Holding Company, Santana's "Soul Sacrifice", and Steve Miller's "Roll With it"......Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit appears here, too, and probably appears on as many comps as "Summertime BLues", but I guess they had a picture they wished to complete.
Disc 4 Four (Wait for it) ("The Man Can't Bust Our Music", TOLD YA it'd be worth the wait!) gives us the rather obvious "Evil Ways" by Santana, also the somewhat lame "White Bird" by It's a Beautiful Day, commonly available tracks like the Youngblood's "Get Together" and the Grateful Dead's "Dark Star".....but we DO also get some rarer stuff from Fifty Foot Hose, Kak, Seatrain, and the Flamin' Groovies.....
This is not my favorite set of the series......some good stuff, but a lot of hippie-dross and too much readilly available stuff....still, I'm sure, if you LIVED THROUGH this scene in SF during those years, this would serve as a perfectly wonderful life soundtrack. All in the perspective, I

Links tonight or tomorrow, as soon as I can get em going.....zippy been doing pretty good job of
late......how re you enjoying this massive NUGGETS overload? PLEASE let me know, beg for more or cry for mercy, either way.....I've sure been enjoying listening to (parts of) em again though this past week or so, I can take some more, can you? Gotta know what you want so I can deliver......If you're ready to move on to, say, the "Best Jesus Lizard Post, Ever" or something, I GOTTA know.....
(NOTE) yes I know the SF links aren't up yet, I'm dong what I can......I promise you that the SF and LA links will BOTH be up before I continue on.....sometimes Zippy does me right, soemtimes I cannot figure out WHAT they are doing, but al in all, EVENTUTALLY all you guys get your links, and that is what ultimately matters.....thanks for your patience, and remember I really do love ya.....I'm not doing this for my health, but to try to spread some of the music that i have loved to a potential new audience. Youn/old/male/female/ doesn't matter. Rock n Roll is the universal, speaks-to-EVERYONE (everyone who GETS IT, that is) language, I there is so much of it out there that needs to be heard by the uninititated. Again, love you all, and TRY to bring you new/old and different things that will maybe make a similalr difference in your life that they have in my own. Love, BigScott1962
Well, here I think we have the last of the "official" Nuggets releases, although I'm certain I have some other internet-only creations ala "mega Nuggets" yet to offer. This one, as the title would lead you to believe, focusses on the City of Angels, and my personal preference only, I prefer it over the San Francisco set.....wonder if the future will release more sets? Texas? New York? Michigan? Regional rock of tha era is so VERY interesting, you kids would never beleive it but there was a time when different regions of the country had their own, unique sounds.....perhaps at the end of the Nuggets trail lies the vaery fab "Psychedelic States" set, which accentuates this point better even than
the Nuggets sets did.......
Disc 2 ("Beyond the City"), tones down the "stars" approach a bit, some lesser knows such as Limey
& the Yanks, Deepest BLue, WC Fields Memorial Electric String Band, and Opus 1, mingled with the bettr known Turtles, Electric Prunes, Kim Fowley, The Yellow Payges, and Fapardokly, again, happily, NOT represented by their best known works. Disc 3 ("The Studio Scene") is even further out there, Yellow Balloon, Roger Nichols Trio, The Common Cold, Thorinshield, and The Moon.....mix that up with (again, happily) LESSER KNOWN tunes from Jan & Dean, The Monkees, Gary Lewis & the Playboys, and the Mamas and the Papas.......again, I really enjoy this ser MUCH more than the San Francisco set, due to the deliberate (seemingly) to stay away from well-established "hits".
Finally we have Disc 4, "New Directions", Love checks back in with the legendary "You Set the Scene", also some way out there stuff from the likes of Peter Fonda, Nono & April, Boyce & Hart, Tim Buckley, Everpresent Fullness, and the Dillards (the kick-ass Darlings from the Andy Griffith show, I beleive)......
As I said the end of the "official" Nuggets releases, I think I have a few odds and ends to clean up tomorrow, and then it is up to YOU......you want more of these groovy psych comps? Say the word and I deleiver.......had enough? I'll take that into account as well......it's YOUR blog, I just supply the background noise!

I'm still feeling "Nuggets" type comps for another week or so, but let me close out the official and
Now, these others, I KNOW where THEY come from.....they are my own creations. Back in the 1980's Rhino released a BUNCH of LP's under the "Nuggets" moniker....."Punk Nuggets", "Northwest Nuggets", "Acid Nuggets"......bunch of em.....I bought the ones that were of interest to me. When the firts four disc set came out, I programmed and burned an "extra" disc of tracks that did not make the box......."Bonus Nuggets, Original Artyfacts Not on the Box Set"...HOWEVER, later on, after the discovery of "Mega Nuggets", there IS still some overlap, sorry, but still, to get the complete picture, you'll want this in all it's original, staticy vinyl wonderment......Includes the obvious (but strangely NOT on the other sets) "Gloria" by Shadows of Knight, a spectacular Music Machine track "Eagle Never Hunts the Fly", Black Pearl's great "Forget It", "Sookie Sookie" from Steppenwolf, as well as a bunch of stuff off the "Northwest Nuggets" album from The Wailers, Surprise Package, Daily Flash, Weeds, Floating Bridge, and more.......I think you'll like it. Finally, I transferrred "Acid Nuggets as a whole to CD, I don't think it overlaps MUCH (if any) and contains not-so-rare but essential tracks as "Eight Miles High" by the Byrds, First Edition's "Just Dropped In" "Magic Carpet Ride" From Steppenwolf, the very cool "Porpoise Song" from the Monkees, a mercifully pared-down "Inna Gadda da Vida" by Iron Butterfly, and the hardly obscure but still beyond great "Time Has Come Today" by the Chambers Brothers........very, very worthwihile stuff......

I'm a couple days AHEAD typing and preparing, but a couple days behind getting zippy to upload the links in a timely manner.....so, you'll see this when you see it I guess.....Nugget-rock has always been a passion of mine, and if you share it PLEASE let me know.....this is literally the tip of the iceberg.....I have tons and tons and tons of this stuff, obviously SOME overlap but not enough to make it devoid of an absolute treasure very now and again......I've tried, really tried, to take this blog in many different directions since I began it, I love MANY forms of rock n roll, but have a special passion for some.....Nugget rock is one of those......if you wish me to continue the Nugget-rock monsoon, please llet me know, or, if you think it's time for some, hell, I don't know, Roxy Music or something ELSE that I share an incredible passion for, let me know that, too.....
By the way, if you are my age or slightly younger, catcah the film "This is 40".......it hits home,
Well, I think the regionalism of rock in the 60's was interesting, how each region could have it's "own" sound, I know you kiddies can't comprehend that, but i the days before focus groups and radio consultants, I swear to you that it is/was true.....this series, is decent, NOT all the states are represented, unfortunately, but the ones that ARE are fairly well done so, PLENTY of obscure tracks (ie LITTLE overlap with the recent Nuggets sets)......hopefully some of you folks in, say, Alabama can share some memories of some of these "local legends" whom were unknown to those of us in the
rest of the country.......
Well, as a longtime and loyal Buckeye, my logical starting points are the Ohio discs (there are three).....this stuff is, in general, NOT "Nuggets" quality, but the grabber here is those of us scholarly/geekish enough to actually compare the music of the different parts of our country in that great decade of the 60's (somewhat similalr to comparing the various punk sounds round the world with the Bloodstains comps?).......hope you enjoy these, maybe they'll bring back a memory or two, and if so, please comment.......and as my home-girl Chrissie Hynde says, "Ey, oh, Way to go OHIO!"
