This compilation was released to international acclaim last year in celebration of the 40th anniversary of Lenny Kaye's original and iconic 60s garage/psych collection - Nuggets Ð Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era.
Originally released in 2012 and long out of print, Down under Nuggets is a highly exciting treasure trove of frantic garage hits . There's no filler in this two fuzz drenched volumes, just gem after gem of wild, untamed 60's Rock'n[Roll from the land of Oz.
29 tracks total (15 on Volume 1 and 14 on Volume 2) of manic, loud and in your face teenage angst from luminaries such as the Missing Links, the Black Diamonds, the Purple Hearts, the Loved Ones, the Lost Souls, the Throb, the Wild Cherries and many more.
You even get early and surprisingly raw stompers from the likes of better known bands as the Easybeats or the Bee Gees and the legendary full/length 5>29 version of the Sunsets- classic -The Hot Generation-.
Absolutely essential for any 60's Garage rock fan with a pinch on blood on his veins.Down Under Nuggets: Original Australian Artyfacts 1965-1967 is a near-definitive collection of authentic Australian garage rock.
Numbered, limited edition of 1000, presented in a gatefold sleeve, featuring complete original liner notes. Australian import
