VERY GOOD set of 4 CD's from 60's. Lots of hits - and also fun to hear more obscure tunes. I particularly enjoyed The Sons of Adams doing 'Saturday's Son' - great lyrics, too.

There was a lot of great music made in LA in the late 60s. Unfortunately, these recordings are not it. Even the good songs by solid groups are sub-standard versions.

This was a really great set of CD's from the late 60's. Lots of Bubblegum-type music included as well.

I don't understand why anyone would release a box set of 4 cd's and include only B sides, actually I'd call them Z sides. Out of the over 100 songs, I like 2, though I'm not through listening to Disc 4. Thank God I didn't pay for this.

Nice little collection. Those years, 1965-1968 were a time of dynamic movement in popular music and a lot of what was going on was in LA and San Francisco. This set provides as good a coverage as anyone is likely to find where the LA scene is concerned. A lot of names here went on to join groups that went to the top, or went to the top themselves in fairly rapid sequence.

These 4 cd's are full of the music of the Southern California bands of the 1960's. It is amazing the number and the variety of the music on these discs. Many of these bands would later be thought of as garage rock or experimental rock. It was a time when musicians were gathers in LA to find other band mates. Some musicians would move from one band to another. There were clubs, colleges, festivals, and bands in the parks. All the excitement of this era is contained in these 4 cd's. Many of these groups became famous like the Beach Boys and The Electric Flag. But most just got heard in the Southern California area. Not all great music sold millions of copies. Discover some new favorites yourself on this deluxe "Where The Action Is" Los Angeles Nuggets, 1965 to 1968".

I live in Seattle and am on this Nuggets set! I started the Velvet Illuisons in Yakima in 1965. We relocated to LA (Hollywood, actually). Our song, Acid Head is on disc 2 of the set. In 2011 we finally released an entire cd entitled Velvet Illusions: Acid Head, which can be found via the www. If anyone would like to correspond, go for it! Randy Bowles. PS You can see Velvet Illusions videos, and mine from 2011-2013, on YouTube, for FREE!
