VA – Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968 (1972/1998)

A história resumida de Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the first psycedelic era é mais ou menos assim: lá no começo dos anos 70 a Elektra Records chamou o então crítico musical Lenny Kaye – que alguns anos mais tarde seria guitarrista do Patti Smith Group – para compilar algumas pedradas desconhecidas do rock de então, e o sujeito foi além. Muito além.

Lançada em 72 a coletânea reuniu 27 faixas de bandas obscuras (acha que o Count Five fazia sucesso nessa época? Imagine então o sensacional Strangeloves…), todas norte-americanas, com influências e/ou contemporâneas da British invasion. A despeito do nome, a pegada aqui nem é psicodélica no sentido lisérgico da palavra; o clima é mais de garagem, com órgãos Farfisa e guitarras altas e distorcidas, mas há sim vibrações de ácido reverberando aqui e acolá, assim como de blues, folk, etc, afinal tudo andava junto na segunda metade dos anos 60, época da qual Kaye bebeu para reunir sua compilação.

Em 98 houve a reedição de Nuggets em uma caixa com 4 CDs, e são estes que a gente põe na roda aqui no Pequenos Clássicos Perdidos agora.
