There's nothing "soft" about the nuggets in this great little collection – as all the tracks here are the cream of the crop of the late 60s pop scene in the US – not super-huge hits, but instead some overlooked gems that definitely warrant the "nuggets" in the title! Most of the work here is from the Warner/
Atlantic catalog – but there's also some nice bits from other labels too – and the collection focuses on the warm, breezy, completely sublime sounds that have come to be known as Sunshine Pop over the years – music that's well-produced, but very personal too – and which often has a quality that's a bit deeper than the usual oldies radio material from the time. As usual with most Japanese collections we love so much, the track selection is ultra-hip, and also includes some rare 45-only titles – with two dozen tracks in all, a good number of which we might not have heard otherwise. Titles on this second volume include "It's A Natural Thing" by The Congregation, "No One Was There" by The Gates Of Eden, "Hung Up On Love" by The Other Voices, "Tell Someone You Love Them" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Beverly Hills" by Uncle Sound, "Many Are The Times" by Lee Mallory, "I Believe In Her" by The Tradewinds, "All" by James Darren, "Love In" by The Morning Glories, "My World Fell Down" by Sagittarius, "Happy" by Blades Of Grass, "If You Know What I Mean" by The Gas Company, "Don't Let The Rain Fall Down On Me" by The Critters
, "Me Japanese Boy" by Harpers Bizarre, "Time To Love" by The Addrisi Brothers, "Don't Run Away" by Bruce & Terry, "I Could Be So Good To You" by Don & The Goodtimers, and "Will You Be Staying After Sunday" by Peppermint Rainbow.
