Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era, 1965–1968 è una raccolta di singoli garage rock e psichedelici usciti negli Stati Uniti nella seconda metà degli anni 60 pubblicato nel 1972 in formato doppio LP dall'etichetta Elektra. È considerato un punto di partenza nella nascita del garage rock revival e imprescindibile per gli appassionati di rock americano degli anni sessanta.[1]

Il disco nato da un'idea di Jack Holzman fondatore della Elektra fu prodotto da Lenny Kaye (futuro chitarrista di Patti Smith) che scelse i brani. È stato ristampato con diversa copertina nel 1976 dalla Sire Records. Nelle note di copertina appare, tra le prime volte, il termine punk rock usato dallo stesso Kaye per identificare il suono di alcuni gruppi presenti.

L'album è stato inserito dalla rivista Rolling Stone al 196º posto nella classifica dei 500 album migliori della storia del rock.[2]

Nel 1998 la Rhino Records ha pubblicato un cofanetto composto da 4 dischi di cui il primo contiene le tracce del disco originale, mentre negli altri 3 sono presenti altri brani usciti nel periodo 1965-1968.
