Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era is a compilation album of American pop and rock songs from the mid- to late 1960s, assembled by Jac Holzman, founder of Elektra Records. Assisting him was Lenny Kaye, who later became the guitarist for the Patti Smith Group. Together, the two men assembled a 2-LP set. The album was originally released by Elektra Records in 1972, and reissued, with a new cover design, in 1976 by Sire Records. The liner notes, penned by Lenny Kaye and containing one of the first uses of the term "punk rock", gave a brief biography of each band.
