60s Proto-Punk/Psychedelia Collection

This is a collection of 60's proto-punk/garage rock songs mainly taken from the albums Nuggets and the Pebbles Series. Not all the tracks are really proto punk, things like Indian Rope Man are just classic 60s psychedelia... which is no bad thing.

The Pebbles series describes the recordings on their albums as "Original punk rock and psychedelic rock from the fabulous Sixties." These recordings were primarily made by the numerous American bands that were formed in the wake of the British Invasion. Essentially referring to the young age and lack of sophistication of the musicians, the term "punk rock" was coined (or at least popularized) by Lenny Kaye, who was involved in compiling the original Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965-1968.
