This Just In: Transparent Days

Rhino’s provided super-collectors with another installment of the legendary Nuggets series as part of its Summer Of Love campaign! Transparent Days: West Coast Nuggets focuses on, you guessed it, psychedelic gems from the west coast. Titled after a track from The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Transparent Days offers up 30 tracks from well-known acts and relative unknowns, all active during the Summer Of Love. Take a listen to the title-ish track below and scope this week’s in-stocks as well. -MLE

Various – Transparent Days: West Coast Nuggets 2LP
Listen: West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band – “Transparent Day”
“The summer of 1967 was a turning point in popular culture that drew as many as 100,000 young people to San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury neighborhood. It represented a social convergence driven by free thinking, hippie fashion, political upheaval, sexual freedom, drug use and creative expression. As the movement spread around the world, it led to an outpouring of poetry, artwork, and especially music.

In July, Rhino will launch its 50th anniversary celebration of the Summer of Love with vinyl re-issues of key albums from that era along with new compilations that provide a soundtrack to this defining moment of the Sixties.

The final month’s batch goes increasingly esoteric with a new 2LP set in the famous Nuggets series: Transparent Days: West Coast Nuggets offers 30 rare gems from the Summer of Love.”
