Various - Nuggets 2LP
Seminal 1972 compilation on the Elektra label, put together by a pre-Patti Smith Group Lenny Kaye, and one which pretty much birthed the '60s garage-rock genre into the mind of records nerds worldwide. It's impossible to overstate the importance of this release. In the pre-punk rock underground at the time, it was a sacred text. Features the 13th Floor Elevators, Standells, Remains, Seeds and many more. It is, quite simply, mandatory.
