While the original Nuggets compilation concentrated on the American pop and rock scene, the second Nuggets shifted its focus to the rest of the world, collecting cuts from the United Kingdom (such as The Pretty Things and Small Faces), Canada (The Guess Who and The Haunted), Japan (The Mops), Australia (The Easybeats, The Masters Apprentices, Ronnie Burns), New Zealand (The La De Das and Chants R&B), Sweden (The Tages), Iceland (Thor's Hammer), The Netherlands (Q65, Cuby + Blizzards and Golden Earring), Peru (We All Together), Brazil (Os Mutantes), Uruguay (Los Shakers), Czechoslovakia (The Matadors) and Austria (The Slaves).

The compilation was produced by music consultant Alec Palao and production coordinator Gary Stewart. The packaging includes a fully illustrated book in a box, with the design of each individual CD resembling those of the late 1960s British record labels Deram, Reaction and Immediate, and Shel Talmy's Planet Records. The liner notes are by Bomp's Greg Shaw.[6]

Critical receptionEdit

Entertainment Weekly wrote that "its melodious late-’60s clamor pays tribute less to the cool of the Beatles and Stones than to the alienation of the Who and the Kinks — with a nod to the American garage."[3] The New York Times wrote: "This follow-up to the 1998 boxed set of classic American garage-rock and psychedelic nuggets is a highly recommended grab-bag of bad-boy classics and obscurities."[4]
