Exact repro of this 1966 debut album. "'(We Ain't Got) Nothing Yet' is an extraordinary and magical two minutes and ten seconds which, like the Box Tops' 'The Letter,' is one of those little two-minute blasts of pop which brought the transistor radio to life and which is the proverbial breath of fresh air on oldies radio stations daring enough to play psychedelia. Psychedelic Lollipop is the real thing, the band looking on the LP cover like Captain Kirk abandoned them on some forgotten Star Trek planet, the music inside, authentic acid pop. They stretch J.D. Loudermilk's 'Tobacco Road' across four and a half Seeds-style minutes, obliterating the Nashville Teens' 1964 hit recording in the process. D.Blue's 'Queen of My Nights' may have inspired The Troggs' 1968 hit 'Love Is All Around.' The melody might be different, but the intro music is identical to what Reg Presley gave the world a couple of years after this. Producers Bob Wyld and Art Polhemus do a great job of keeping the intensity up across two sides of this album. Psychedelic Lollipop is a solid and precious gem from the Nuggets vaults, the difference between this and other one-hit artists being that you can play the entire album repeatedly, quite an accomplishment coming from the era of the hit single. That such a tremendous smash like '(We Ain't Got) Nothin' Yet' kicks the whole thing off is just an added bonus." --All Music Guide
