If a single compilation can be attributed to beginning the oldies revolution, it is easily the original 1972 double LP "Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968". Compiled by Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman with assistance and input from guitarist and music historian Lenny Kaye, this deceptively haphazard 27-track aggregate became the cornerstone of the serious appreciation of 60s underground music. One important factor that unifies and likewise levels the playing field for all 27 tracks chosen for the first run of "Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968" is that they were all issued as singles. Each track is also given a brief bio, which was researched and penned by Kaye. His comments go beyond the facts and figures of the typical discography, relating to the music as the personal experience that it was.
