Don't have an original for a comparison but this reissue from Rhino sounds wonderful and plays dead quiet. Unfortunately, the second record is slightly warped but fortunately doesn't effect the sound. Still recommended.

Is it so that B2 The Seeds - Pushin' too hard is on the back cover but not on the actual lp?

I'm not too familiar with the Nuggets releases, so this is a nice intro for me. I really enjoy this CD, especially since I'm getting more into '60s pop. However, given its title and cover art, I was expecting it to be a bit more psychedelic, to be honest. Instead, although it does venture into psych territory a little bit, it's mainly a garage rock compilation.

Imagine a Venn diagram with two circles that half-overlap. The first circle is garage rock: the mostly American, slightly rougher version of the mid-'60s British "beat" music (unsophisticated, early Beatles-style, bang-it-out party music). The second circle is Anglo-American psychedelic rock: the 1965-1974 wave of relatively slow, monotonous, LSD-influenced ear candy with contemplative, poetic lyrics. This compilation is basically that first circle: garage rock, including its somewhat psychedelic side. It's all pretty accessible and not too weird, even the lesser-known stuff. Definitely a sausage fest, though.

The mastering is pretty good, though not ideal for me. It's very well-EQ'd, and they apparently did use original mono masters, which is good. Dynamic range is a bit weaker than I'd like, but this music isn't very dynamic to begin with, so I'm overlooking it this time.

In addition to the fascinating notes by Kaye (on a separate sheet so as not to compromise the original album replica), there's also a nice essay by Elektra founder Jac Holzman, who conceived the Nuggets 2xLP concept and assigned Kaye to compile it. Holzman was 81 when this reissue was released.

Fantastic Box set! The music is great! The problem is (as far as I know) only in my copy, but my booklet is defective, strange you say...My booklet printed pages 19-34 twice and is missing pages 35-50. Someone help me!!! I love this boxset, but have no desire to buy a 2nd copy just to get those missing 15 pages of the booklet, when the CDs themselves are perfect!

So, A: In this day in age where everything is viewable on the internet, can anyone tell me where I can find and possibly print the contents of those missing pages of the booklet or for that matter is there someone out there who loves this box like I do and has a perfect booklet, a scanner, and can email me the contents of pages 35-50?, or where I can buy the booklet only for less than the box set price?

And B: Am I the only person who bought a copy of this box with this twisted defect?

Please let me know if you know where I can get this info, but as far as the quality of the music, I love this box, from classics like "Dirty Water" or "7 and 7 Is" to great garage classics by the 13th Floor Elevators and the Sonics to the really obscure, while not EVERY single song is Fantastic, as a whole the box is so full of great tunes that any mediocre tunes are more than made up for by the vast majority of material. I would recommend this box to anyone who likes garage or wants to hear the roots of psychedelic music(pre-acid boom of '68-71), just check to make sure your booklet has all the pages before throwing away receipt.

Bad ass compilation - I can listen to all 4 CD's without ever skipping a track. Not sure what is so psychedelic about the music, maybe you had to be there? Whatever the description, this stuff is dope (especially if you're old or hang out with old people).
