In 1979 a Berlin Record shop issued Acid Dreams a compilation of American psychedelic garage punk in a simple op-art sleeve design pressed in an edition of only 77 copies that disseminated amongst hard-core collectors. It was inspired by the Nuggets compilation that appeared on Elektra in 1972 but dug much deeper into US 60s pop culture than even that brilliant double LP set had dared to venture. Its emergence was only slightly predated by the first Pebbles compilation which had appeared in Australia the year before. Acid Dreams was an instant classic. It defined the perfect garage psych compilation and went on to spawn sequels over the following decades.
