Glad to see your review of the turtles. One of my fondest memories was seeing Kaylen and Volman with Zappa and the Mothers at several concerts at Pauley Pavilion on the UCLA campus probably 1971. What fun and great music! And the girl I took ran off with Aynsley Dunbar and became a groupie for a while.

About this song


 With the passing of the years the rights to music come and go in this messy business. And every once and a while the rights actually revert back to the original artists. This is what has happened with one of our favorite sixties acts. Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman are finally in charge of the master tapes of their band, The Turtles, and are now issuing this twenty track collection of original recordings. Every hit you can name is here in glorious new sound. Their huge single successes overshadowed some nice albums and they were unfairly pushed aside by FM radio. Nothing can change their contribution to AM radio though, and this set is proof positive as to how prolific they were in an era of one hit wonders and novelty tunes.
