Nuggets - Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Era 1965-1968
(Rhino 1998) Selected by Gary Stewart & Lenny Kaye

Essentiel. Les origines du garage-rock, du punk-rock, du rock psychédélique, le meilleur des singles cultes ou inconnus américains de la période 65-68... "Nuggets" sort à l'origine en 1972, conceptualisé par Lenny Kaye (futur guitariste de Patti Smith), à la demande du PDG d'Elektra, Jac Holzman, en 1972.
Il s'agissait d'un double vinyle de 27 titres, qui est ici agrémenté de... 91 autres pépites de l'époque! L'anthologie ultime du genre, donc. Vous pouvez revendre vos "Peebles" et autres "Back from the grave", l'essentiel est là: 118 classiques garage sélectionnés par Lenny Kaye lui-même.
Fuzz, wah-wah ou orgue Farfisa partout, jamais plus de trois minutes, et surtout il s'agit de faire simple et direct : c'est ça qui est bien avec ces singles, tout le monde peut apprendre à les jouer, en général tout tient sur un riff et un break, avec quelques paroles pas trop compliquées. La majorité des groupes présents ici ne connurent pas la gloire, mais à eux tous forment une référence ultra-solide, parce que les chansons, oui les chansons, font bien plus que tenir la route. Et le livret est un véritable travail d'orfèvre lui aussi, tout y est expliqué, disséqué, illustré de nombreuses photos en général à hurler de rire: les fringues, les coupes de cheveux, les poses, les gueules... c'est la grande classe. Et puis une fois que vous aurez fait le tour de 4 CDs (d'ici un moment quand même), vous pourrez aller chercher les albums des Seeds et de Love (surtout "Forever changes"!), le reste ne se garde qu'en single. Le coffret est un peu cher, mais ce sont les 'Original artyfacts from the first psychedelic era 1965-68', quand même. Essentiel, je disais.
