Nuggets wrap-up

0
0
I'm still feeling "Nuggets" type comps for another week or so, but let me close out the official and
semi-official "Nuggets releases toay witht he remaining odds and ends that are contained on my shelves. First of all, "Michigan Nuggets"......I have no idea, doubt highly it was part of any of the "Nuggets" releases, but here it is, and brimming with goodies.....at least FIVE MC5 tracks, a couple of them which I'd heard no where else lots of Bob Seger stuff from before he was, well, "like a rock", plenty of Amboy Dukes psychosis, plus somewhat lesser known (not in Michigan) stuff like the Rationals (great, great stuff), Unreleated Segments (some "Nuggets" overlap), Underdogs (likewise), Terry Knight and the Pack (the seeds of Grand Funk), ? & the Mysterians, there is PLENTY of great sttuff here, WAAY enouh for the overlaps to not get in your way.......no idea where this came from, but it's a goodie.

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......

That will do it for anything officially OR unoffically called Nuggets, it's all I HAVE anyway......BUT there is lots more of this stuff to come, maybe for a week or so or until you beg me to stop......this stuff ALWAYS has an audience, and the simple reason is because it is so timelessly great, at least in my opinion.

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,
Graham Parker portrays himself in it and looks like he could be my grandfather......I LOVE GRAHAM PARKER, but this film hits home on afew different levels, not least of which, is when did Graham Parker and mysellf turn into slobbering, doddering old men?
