Weekend Mix: acid washed weekend

I didn't buy a copy of the original double lp"Nuggets" as compiled by Lenny Kaye in 1972.
I never really sought this stuff out before getting Bowie's "Pinups" in 1973. At first I preferred his versions because the sound was so much better.  I thought the Kink's original "Where Have All The Goodtimes Gone?" sounded weak and thin by comparison. On the other hand, Syd's "See Emily Play" had something that Bowie's did not.

Neither of those are here, however.

Only "Lies", "Open My Eyes", and "Farmer John" appeared on the original 1972 "Nuggets".
The rest are from the much expanded Rhino versions, and a few from various other sources.
I included the best, and most obscure songs I know, while mostly avoiding the usual suspects.
While I'm sure some of this is familiar territory, I hope it's the surprises that really get you.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks BBJ - as great as the mix looks I doubt if it will equal the greatness of the artwork. Outstanding!!! Randy

Biff! Bang! Pow! indeed, a very nice bag of acid drops to wrap one's taste buds around. Cover art always welcome for those of us who still burn cds, so extra thanks for that. But, as Mr Kool & his Gang said, the music is the message & I'm loving what this trippy mix of old & new (to me) tuneage is saying. Cheers!

Thanks! The art makes the virtual more actual.
