Shockingly good stuff. This is like a museum tour of all the late '60s musical styles. "Hurricane Judy" is power-pop in a psychedelic Big Star vein, "Dr. No" sounds like a Revolver outtake, and "Back Seat Silver Jet Sighter" could very well be a lost Bowie tune. If you stuck "Get Your Boots On" or "Let Me Get Your Coat" on Nuggets, the only thing that would give away the 35-year time difference is the fidelity. "Christmas Day, 1923" is a Dylanesque tale that ranks to me as the single saddest song ever written.

Those tracks alone make this double album worth every penny, but it doesn't stop there - orchestral pop ("You Will Be Loved"), Summer of Love acid trips ("This Is Really A Book"), prog-pop ("Birds Of Prey"), dark acoustic blues ("Devil No More"), spooky psychedelia ("Quicksilver"), reggae ("Wake Up And Live"), and all-around catchy pop ("Build Havana", also released as a single), and a whole bunch more that I don't want to spoil. Anyone who likes popular music from '65 to '72 or so should do themselves a favor and give this a spin - I don't think you'll be disappointed.
