N is for... Nuggets
Released in 1972, Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era was a compilation of 27 garage rock tracks put together by guitarist Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group) and Elektra Records' big cheese, Jac Holzman. Featuring bands like The Standells, The Seeds, Count Five and Shadows Of Knight, Nuggets reignited interest in the '60s garage scene and inspired '70s punks.
In 1998, the original Nuggets album was pimped into a killer four-CD boxset with an additional 91 tracks and a book. We’ve got it and we're here to testify that it’s all gravy baby...
N is also for... Nathan Daniels
Nathan Daniels was the genius behind Danelectro guitars and basses. Thanks to a combination of low-cost materials and clever construction, Daniels put affordable, great sounding guitars into the hands of kids who couldn’t afford a Gibson or Fender. Legends like Jimmy Page and Eric Clapton loved them too. Check out the latest Danelectro range here.
