I love all this garage stuff & this is a real find. It's not just the music but the whole inspiring package. If you are a fan of things garagy, punky, psychedelic and exotic then look no further.

Un, Dos, Tres, Quatro!Hits you remember from the 60s but in Spanish in deluxe set 7 July 2013
By Steve Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When I see Producer James Austin's name on a reissue album project I know I'm in for something unusual. Austin spent many years at Rhino Records producing "theme based" reissue box sets - often in unusual packaging (though sometimes hard to store) - many of which are still in my collection after 30 years. Austin left Rhino years ago and, with another Rhino veteran, Arny Schorr, helped found Rock Beat Records. To date most of their releases have been single or double CD albums. Though I may be wrong, this is the first multi-disc set with deluxe packaging and detailed liner notes.

The four disc set is packaged with the CDs stored in the front and back covers of a lavishly illustrated 70-page hardbound book. After the introduction by Austin, there are detailed track notes - by Randal Wood - and gorgeous color reproductions of the record sleeves or album covers. There are a whopping 101 tracks here, most, if not all, you have probably never heard before, unless you lived in South Texas in the 1960s and travelled to South America a lot during that time.
To get you into the mood, Austin starts of the album with an intro we all know by hear: "Ono! Dos! Tres! Quatro!....". Yep, it's "Wooly Bully", but not by Sam The Sham and the Pharaohs. This time it's in Spanish by Los Shain's. What follows are many more songs that we know in their English versions but are done here in Spanish by groups from Latin America (Mexico, Peru, Dominican Republic) and Spain. There's The Kinks' "You Really Got Me" , The Stones' "Satisfaction" and even Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walking" all done by local bands in Spanish. Austin always loved to insert "odd tracks" into his compilations so we are also treated to a Volkswagen commercial, and a few Spanish radio station IDs.
Of course it helps if you are into "garage bands" of the 60s and like that style of music but Austin always "pushed the button" on the themes of his albums.

The sound is decent but don't expect hi-fi. After all these records were recorded by small labels and the transfers were made from surviving 45s.
I had fun listening to these CDs and the notes gave me background. I probably won't return to this set, like I do Austin's earlier projects but after all I grew up with East Coast rock and roll and the early Philly Sound.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

The true sequel to the original Nuggets box set 2 Aug. 2013
By Phil (San Diego) - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Best set I've purchased in recent memory. Got the mp3 downloads, not the box set with physical media and a book. If you were somewhat disappointed by the fey Nuggets II box set (or its penchant for later-sixties 'heavy' sounds), or the Children of Nuggets followup which documented recycled sounds sourced from big brother or big sister's record collection, you need Los Nuggetz as an antidote. As expected there's variety but its center of gravity is the gritty, joyful garage sound of the mid-sixties.

Probably half of this set is comprised of covers of sixties hits you know well. I stumbled across this collection while searching for "Aqui En Mi Nube", a delicious little cover of the Stones' "Get Off My Cloud". If I never hear the Stones' overplayed "Satisfaction" again it'll be too soon but the raw version here gives this song new life. You'll also find "Paint It Black" tucked away in here. I'd start listing some of the other songs you'd know but as soon as you hear the samples you'll be going, "Love Me Two Times", "96 Tears", "Tijuana (California) Sun", and so on.

One of the pleasures of these recordings is that old chestnuts are given new life. What you have here is what all of the most famous sixties hits would sound like if you stripped away the sheen of Abbey Road studios or the detailing and pinstriping that the top producers of the day put on their legendary hits. This is what the most famous acts of the rock era would sound like if they'd spent a few more years in the garage, in the clubs, at parties.

But what really puts this compilation over the top though are those thoughtful and entertaining touches, the inclusion of commercials and radio station IDs that provide a context for the times from which these songs come. I'm wondering if this wasn't assembled by those same Rhino expats who pieced together the Have A Nice Decade box set of 70s pop; its inclusion of newscasts to punctuate the songs and the times were the icing that made that quite possibly Rhino's most effective box set ever. Some of the entries for radio IDs include multiple stations. e.g. It's not listed but I recognized the station ID for Tijuana's 91X that's been around since the beginning of time.

I'll vouch for this collection, Los Nuggetz, as one of the best I've found in a long time. I've dumped over half of these ~100 tracks to the Amazon Cloud playlist I use for listening to highlights from new music that I've gotten; that's over fifty songs from this one set alone. A couple similar sets that I can enthusiastically recommend you check out would be Rock 'N' Roll Jungle and Devil's Jukebox: Taboo 60s. Like this collection the latter includes soundtracks from movie trailers, instructional films warning kids about the vices of the day, and so on. I created yet another playlist on my cloud just for these albums, throwing in some gems from Chicas as well. Life is good. Stay thirsty my friends.

Los Nuggetz Es Bueno! 29 Oct. 2013
By William T. Luther - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
4 CD's housed in a wonderful hardbound book with full color scans, photos and authoritative text of "Latin American" 60's punk, pop and psychedelia". It's title is something of a misnomer as there are actually quite a few tracks by Spanish 60's bands as well (Los Salvajes, Los Bravos, Los Sirex etc). Regardless, it's an amazing collection of a variety stuff in Spanish from the 1960's from carbon copy British invasion covers, to Latin American Sonics impersonators to way out acid eating full blown psychedelia it's a delight from start to finish (with lots of amusing radio/TV commercials in Spanish from the 60's thrown in). "Nuggets II" scratched the surface on this genre with a few inclusions, this set digs up the treasure chest!

What a blast!! 29 Aug. 2013
By JET Productions: Music Without Walls - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Lots of fun. An excellent and deep collection with a handful of commercials and radio promos. Besides some great music, it gives this lifelong Minnesotan a glimpse of life during the mid to late 1960's in southern California and all the parts of the country that could get those super powered radio stations from Mexico. Bonus: if you don't already speak it, learn Spanish by singing along with the music you grew up with.
Buy this 4 CD set! 7 July 2014
By Rudy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Buy this 4 CD album. Everything about it is first rate, from its graphics and art work, to the meticulously researched background info on every group, to the performers themselves. The fact that nearly all of the songs are sung in Spanish will not detract from its enjoyment one iota. At least it didn't for me. There are tons of cover songs from the Stones to the Beatles to the Doors to the Four Tops (etc., etc., etc.). Some are note for note imitations while others are surprisingly fresh and revealing in their interpretations. The talent displayed here ranges from well meaning and enthusiastic to prodigious and impressive. I had no idea that such a large number of quality songs existed. Our Latin American brothers and sisters did 60's garage rock a huge favor by embracing it in such a talented and meaningful manner.
