I have always been a fan of the original music that was created in the first of the psychedelic years of 1965-1968. The original nuggets LP issued in 75 or so was a great sampling of my kind of music. I went on to buy the next wave of nugget LP's that were issued.  Rhino did a great job of finding a vast collection of rare and popular garage\psychedelic music even more with it's box set on cd. However I have taken it a step further here by putting together some more of my favorites. I have intentions of putting a couple more comps as time goes by. Music from MY time as a young man and I believe it to be one of the most creative in musical history. Punk, garage, Psychedelic OH MY!
The photo image is that of Peppy Castro of the Blues Magoos in one of their electric suits

Thanks! I grew up during this era also, and always enjoyed the music from "the road less traveled, alot more innaresting [sic]" as Neil Young once said! I saw the Blues Magoos in their electric suits once when I was in High School & still have a couple of snapshots that I took. Very nice collection, with Mystic Eyes being an old Favorite. Larry

You summed up very well the excitement of growing up listening to the new music of the sixties. I can't add anymore to what it was like except it made you glad you had a phonograph. Great posts.
