Muze PNote WHERE THE ACTION IS! LOS ANGELES NUGGETS: 1956-1968, Rhino's 2009 sequel to their 2007 Nuggets box LOVE IS THE SONG WE SING, shifts the spotlight down the California coast, moving from the epicenter of the hippie universe in San Francisco to hipsville central in Los Angeles, the land where fringe-wearing folk-rockers strolled down the Sunset Strip alongside studio cats on the make. Both groups of hipsters are equally well-represented on WHERE THE ACTION IS!, along with the teens raising a ruckus out in the suburbs and the stars who stretched out, all based on the sounds they heard coming from the Strip, the section of Sunset that serves as the fulcrum for this entire set. The compilers focus on a brief time, the four-year stretch from 1965 to 1968
