Label: Edsel | Release Year: 2017

The Turtles enjoyed eighteen US hit singles between 1965 and 1970, three of which (“Happy Together”, “She’d Rather Be With Me” and “Elenore”) were also huge hits in the UK. From their original incarnation as surf band The Crossfires, all the way to their final single, the Turtles traversed several different musical paths during their career. It is precisely this power through diversity that makes the Turtles’ body of work one of the most rewarding and enjoyable of the 1960’s – they never met a genre they didn’t like. Edsel Records is proud to present the band’s six albums, each as a 2 CD digipak set.

The Turtles enjoyed eighteen US hit singles between 1965 and 1970, three of which (“Happy Together”, “She’d Rather Be With Me” and “Elenore”) were also huge hits in the UK. Edsel Records is proud to present the band’s six albums, each as a 2 CD digipak set. Had The Turtles issued a second album in 1966, it would have inevitably been close in content to Wooden Head. The 1970 brainchild of their former producer, Bones Howe, it collected ten songs from their mid-‘60s sessions that were at the time unreleased (excepting “We’ll Meet Again,” which had graced the flipside of the July 1966 single, “Outside Chance”). Packaged in a zany Dean Torrence-designed cover, it marked the end of the band’s relationship with their label White Whale, which, like The Turtles, folded soon after. With a booklet note by Andrew Sandoval, this 2 CD digipak edition (exclusive to the UK) has been newly re-mastered by Bill Inglot. The bonus CD includes outtakes, alternate mixes and more non-album hit singles “Grim Reaper Of Love”, “Can I Get To Know You Better” and “You Know What I Mean”.

Where the first Best of the Turtles compilation from Rhino focused on the group's many hit singles, Turtle Wax goes in the opposite direction, spotlighting the singles that just didn't click for whatever reason. In this sense it serves the same purpose as Joni Mitchell's Misses accompaniment to her Hits collection…

This classic Bossa Nova album has finally been produced on CD. The great late Laurindo Almeida plays acoustic and electric guitar on this collection of bossa tunes. Best cuts are "Um Abraco No Bonfa" and "Manha De Carnaval." Also "Choro For People In Love" is a pretty slow tune. This is a must-have for all bossa lovers. ~Amazon

The Turtles' third original album (and their highest charting, peaking at number 25) was also their most rewarding, filled with mostly first-rate songs beautifully executed. The hits singles "Happy Together" and "She'd Rather Be with Me" (both authored by Garry Bonner and Alan Gordon of the East Coast band the Magicians) helped propel the LP's sales, but there was a cornucopia of superb music surrounding them…

Antonio Carlos Jobim , also known as Tom Jobim, was a Brazilian songwriter, composer, arranger, singer, and pianist/guitarist. He was a primary force behind the creation of the bossa nova style, and his songs have been performed by many singers and instrumentalists within Brazil and internationally. Widely known as the composer of "Garota de Ipanema" ("The Girl from Ipanema"), one of the most recorded songs of all time, Jobim has left a large number of songs that are now included in jazz and pop standard repertoires. The song "Garota de Ipanema" has been recorded over 240 times by other artists.
