What is for you the best album ever ? Reply #75 – 2003-07-14 07:28:27 Is it cheating to claim your favourite album is a various-artists comp? B) For those who haven't heard it, I would strongly recommend Lenny Kaye's 1972 2-LP compilation, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968. This was the "album" that began the modern awareness of garage-psychedelia, and it rocks harder than anything the punk or grunge eras ever spawned. (A strong statement, and there are many here who will disagree. This is my opinion.) Best way to get this collection of gems is in the 4-CD box set from Rhino, as the first disc follows the configuration of the original album, with discs two through four offering a plethora of supplemental material. - M.
