Welcome To My Blog

Thanks for checking the blog out... Hope it offers something a bit different every now & again. Though I come from a pseudo - Mod background (Soul & Ska in particular), I have a diverse taste in music & hope my varied posts will reflect this.

Cheers Skamanc .... I'm not after your undying gratitude, but please leave your thoughts, comments & opinions on the posts & content. I regularly up- & download material, plus buy and trade items. As such, if I have inadvertently "trodden on anyone's toes" in posting anything then please let me know & accept my apologies. Also please support the artists involved & remember that the blog is merely a pointer toward these various downloads, which are stored elsewhere. Legally, any downloads should not be retained for more than a week. So now I've told you the legal bit !

Nuggets Vol 1 : Mid '60s USA Psych Garage Bands

The "British Invasion" of the States in the early - mid 60s inspired a generation of kids to form garage bands. The Nuggets series is a collection of such material - "original arytfacts" as they're billed. The original vinyl compilations were compiled by Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith band guitarist) and there is some excellent material on here & the further three volumes (to follow shortly). Some obscure, some well known, and many "one hit wonders". The so called "beat" influence is evident, as is the psychedelic influence creeping in... Among others, Volume 1 includes : The Electric Prunes, The Standells, the 13th Floor Elevators, The Nazz, The Strangeloves, The Blues Project & The Chocolate Watchband. This volume includes all 27 tracks, plus CD artwork. http://rapidshare.com/files/362736115/Nuggets_Vol1.rar Comments & feedback MORE than welcome...
