A fellow Paisley Underground fanatic here. Have we already talked about the recent 3 x 4 release, on which four of the bands reunited to cover one another’s songs? One of my overall favorites for 2019, to be sure. Re Nuggets, I have the excellent Nuggets II box that draws on the late-60s British scene (bought both of these with an employee discount when I worked at Borders in the late 1990s) and just yesterday was inspired to order a used copy of the San Francisco Nuggets box as well. I’d love to also pick up the Los Angeles set, but it seems scarcer and more expensive. As excited as I am to see Patti Smith tomorrow night, I’ll also feel the need to genuflect before Mr. Kaye on the strength of the original Nuggets compilation alone.

Have not heard the 3 x 4, wasn't sure what to make of it at this late date, but will look to pick it up based on your recommendation.  I have all four of the boxes you mention.  the L.A. box is very worthwhile, thought not at extreme prices.  Worth waiting for one priced decently.

I keep meaning to listen to the 3x4 album, but haven't gotten around to it. BTW, the new Dream Syndicate album is excellent!

About Nuggets, I got the double album when it came out and then the box as well. I wish I had picked up Sons of Nuggets, but it was OOP and expensive by the time I decided to get it. I do have the SF and LA Nuggets - nice packaging and interesting collections, but they don't hold up as well as the original.

Oh, and one more ... I have the Cowabunga surf box, too! How could I forget??

This is indeed a super session with Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper on side 1 and Kooper and Stephen Stills on side 2. Side 1 is mostly blues based. On side 2 they do a bang up job on Donovan's Season of the Witch.

Some of the best Mike Bloomfield out there.  This one was quite the sensation back in the day (ca. 1968).

For some reason I don't remember it. 

Just now.

The 2003 CD re-issue had some interesting extra tracks. Worth picking up.

The best parts of their first five albums (and some of the spare tracks) are my favorite music ever.  Gene Clark was so underrated, and McGuinn was McGuinn.

Tyner said "motherfuckers" but it sounds as if the guy working the soundboard faded down his mike.
