While the Flamin' Groovies' first album, Supersnazz, loaded their high-octane retro-rock down with a loving but overly intrusive production, their next long-player, Flamingo, went in exactly the opposite direction; for their second time at bat (and their second major label), the Groovies cranked up their amps and kicked up the tempos, while producer Richard Robinson stripped the band's sound to the bone.

The Flamin' Groovies story goes all the way back to 1965 when the band began as The Chosen Few in their hometown of San Francisco, California. After a name change and a self-released 10" album called 'Sneakers', which sold amazingly well, the band caught the attention of Columbia who signed them up and sent them into the studio with a big budget to record their first real album, 'Supersnazz' on the Epic label.

The Flamin' Groovies' debut album went almost directly into the cut-out bins within a year or so of its 1969 release. Fortunately, the band survived the neglect heaped on that record, and has survived in one form or another into the 21st century.

Through the '80s and '90s, the Flamin' Groovies released a number of substandard, indifferent live albums. California Born And Bred is definitely not one of these. Assembled with Norton Records' usual care and thoroughness, this collection of live and studio rarities from the late '60s and early '70s–when powerhouse singer Roy Loney and not British Invasion-obsessed guitarist Cyril Jordan was the group's central figure–shows that at their best, the Flamin' Groovies could shred every band in their general stylistic vicinity, including their more-lauded Bay Area compatriots Creedence Clearwater Revival.

A lot had happened with the Flamin' Groovies in the nearly five years that separated the epochal Teenage Head album and their return to American record racks with Shake Some Action. The Groovies lost their record deal with Buddah, lead singer Roy Loney had quit the band leaving Cyril Jordan as uncontested leader, and they had spent a lot of time in Europe, building a significant following in the United Kingdom.

The Flamin' Groovies were an American rock music band of the 1960s and 1970s. They began in San Francisco in 1965. The group have been called one of the forerunners of punk rock, and they also had a major influence on the power pop genre.

Starting out in San Francisco as early as 1965 (actually predating the Grateful Dead!), the Flamin Groovies were always out of step with the rock world. Ten years before bands routinely released their own independent records, the Groovies issued a 10-inch mini-album, Sneakers; in the '70s, when that same do-it-yourself spirit was inspiring countless innovative bands to try and challenge the old boundaries, the Groovies retreated to make albums of beat group nostalgia, wearing period clothes and refusing to acknowledge that times had indeed changed.

As its title makes clear, Children of Nuggets is the first Nuggets release to stretch beyond the '60s heyday of garage rock and psychedelic music. Instead of once again returning to that seemingly bottomless well – which has not only brought the original 1972 double LP, Nuggets, but such imitators as the Pebbles and Rubble series, plus Rhino's expanded four-disc 1998 box set and its 2001 sequel, which focused on singles from the U.K. and around the world – the four-disc box Children of Nuggets is devoted to bands from the '70s, '80s, and '90s (but primarily the '80s) that were inspired by the original Nuggets LP, along with other trashy, intoxicating rock and guitar pop from the '60s.
