Lightning strikes more than once when it comes to the magic of rock and roll – but it leaves behind a different sort of spark every single time – as you'll hear in this collection of work put together by Lenny Kaye, who associates key scenes and key moments that helped the music surge forward over the decades! Kaye picks select cuts from Memphis, San Francisco, Detroit, and other cities – and serves up a massive double-length package of tracks that step easily between genres, and which provide the perfect playlist to his well-penned volume of the same name. Given that Lenny was the guy to give us the legendary Nuggets series back in the day, it's clear he definitely knows what he's talking about – and you'll certainly feel that way after reading the very detailed notes in the set! 48 tracks in all – with titles that include "I'm So Happy" by Danny Cobb, "Marcella" by The Castelles, "Tiger" by Fabian, "Stupidity" by The Undertakers, "Pride Of Man (demo)" by Quicksilver Messenger Service
, "Coo Coo" by Big Brother & The Holding Company, Crazy Like A Fox" by Link Cromwellchs, "Looking At You" by MC5, "Cavern Stomp" by The Big Three, "I Hear A New World" by Joe Meek, "Once I Had A Love (1975 version)" by Blondie, "Down At The Rock & Roll Club (alt)" by Richard Hell & The Voidoids, "Leavin Here (version 1)" by The Rationals, and "Gimme Chocolate" by Baby Metal.
