VA - Nuggets '66 - The Covers Project!



Well, here is two mixtapes I made with garage rock recordings (mosty 7inches) from the magic year of 1966 (the best year of garage rock I believe), some combos may be more associated with pop - but in my ears those versions fits in here. The groups are mostly americans, but there are a few acts from canada, europe and two from south america as well (and one from south africa). As the title reveals those mixtapes is about cover versions. The groups here do their own versions of famous (of it's time) big hits/or popular tracks (mostly r&b, soul, rock'n'roll/rock/mod, blues, etc), and some of thoose hot rockin' acts actually covered each other. Do the caveman!
