My review of Rhino’s new box set Where the Action Is! L.A. Nuggets 1965 – 1968 was posted to Popdose today:
Just a week or so after tackling Rhino’s massive Big Star release, Keep An Eye on the Sky, I’m back writing about another huge effort from Rhino, Where the Action Is! Los Angeles Nuggets 1965 – 1968. Once again Rhino has released a beautifully constructed, painstakingly researched, and essential four-disc set, this time covering a crucial period in the evolution of rock and roll in Southern California. Few if any other labels are doing this sort of thing these days. If they have the resources, they don’t have the interest, and if they have the interest, they often don’t have the resources. Rhino is presently in the position of having both, but as I said in my Big Star story, we will have to wait to see what the future brings for the label.popdose.com, CD Review: Various Artists, “Where the Action Is! L.A. Nuggets 1965 – 1968” | Popdose, Oct 2009
