As the fourth Nuggets box from Rhino -- following the Children of Nuggets set, which may not count for some listeners as a true entry in the series as it documents the reverberations of Nuggets instead of the original big bang -- Love Is the Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-1970 is easily the most specific and idiosyncratic yet, a set devoted to a time and a place: namely the Bay Area that sowed the seeds of the Summer of Love in 1967. Released in conjunction with that 40th anniversary (although sadly missing the summer of nostalgia in 2007, reaching the stores that fall), Love Is the Song We Sing is surely a time capsule, but it may not be as much interest to those who lived through it as those who pine for the glory days of free love, hippies, and psychedelia.
Hello Folks, since a few days i have problems with my internet connection. The provider just sucks. Nearly all thirty minutes the router starts new. That's the reason why it takes more time to post. Anyhow, here is the fourth of the Rhino Nuggets series and it's a very well done compilation. After in the Nuggets releases before the most stuff came from british bands of the time then (the sixties :-) )
herenow the wonderful american artists. I don't need a collection of music as history book, that's not really important to me, for me it is the music that counts the most. If i want to know something about the movement and how that all began, i think there are better sources than a music collection. Sure, the booklet it's nice done by Rhino, and to me it made a lot of fun to read it and maybe i must correct my opinion about ''... better sources...blah... history...blahblah'', lol and music collections are still the better history books :-).
Musically this is a real top notch collection about the american music that happened in the sixties.
