    GREAT set!

    I'm having fun finding the youtube of certain songs from the list (and some just because of the cool name). I've yet to not find one...and most are under the Nuggets label.

    Love the genre...top 5 for me.

    I have Nuggets and its an interesting listen even though I consider it as much garage rock as psychedelic rock it bills itself as. Also of interest is the some of the groups had future stars in them.

    Nazz's lead guitarist is Todd Rundgren.

    Amboy Dukes guitarist is everybody's favorite rock conservative/crazy Ted Nugent.

    And the Golliwogs and their awful song "Fight Fire" became (with no personnel changes) the great Creedence Clearwater Revival.

    There are a lot of songs I like but my two favorite are probably the Dylan-like numbers "A Public Execution" (which totally rips off "Like a Rolling Stone") and Syndicate of Sound's "Little Girl", which doesn't sound like any particular Dylan song but the sneering vocal delivery is classic Bob.

    The Leaves version of Hey Joe is good, but pales in comparison to the now more famous Jimi Hendrix version. Although at the time the Leaves version charted at 31 while Hendrix's version didn't chart at all.

    Anyway good stuff.

    I always had a weak spot for Paul Revere and the Raiders. This is an awesome video on so many levels...

    Another good song from the list along with Ginger and Mary Anne...

    A great band, formed out of the ashes of Iron Butterfly (who I saw in concert), Deep Purple (ditto) and Johnny Winter's band (likewise ditto). I saw them at the Houston Music Hall on Saturday Oct 21, 1972. They were second billed behind Trapeze. I saw damned near everyone back then.

    Great thread!

    The Electric Prunes
    The Standells
    The Blues Project
    The Seeds
    The Castaways
    The 13th Floor Elevators
    The Count Five
    The Amboy Dukes
    Blues Magoos
    The Nazz

    Easily one of my favorite bands of the past 5 years or so... Def some psychedelia in their material but make no mistake their live shows are the epitome of garage rock, almost punk. Their show at the Bowery ballroom in NYC a couple years ago was as fun of a show as I've ever been to.
