A Great Battle! And The Winner....By A Knockout...The Fans!

"The Repertoire issue of the CD has the same lineup as "The Turtles Present The Battle of The Bands". However this German Import version of the CD has endowed us with 8 great bonus tracks--including "She's My Girl", "Umbassa The Dragon", "Sound Asleep"-a great single, and "The Story of Rock and Roll". This album is great--hands down. Is it the best? It's a tie between this one and "Turtle Soup"--the group's 1969 Swan Song.
The sound quality is well above average stereo. "Oh Daddy", and "Buzz Saw" are great songs, and show the group's versatility. They came a long way from "Happy Together" and "She'd Rather Be With Me"(although those are great songs as well--and not to be overlooked by any means). The group's cleverness is apparent in songs such as "Food" and "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea (We're The Royal Macademia Nuts)", and they pay their homage (an understatement) to the Beach Boys with the rockin tune "Surfer Dan" (the flip of "Elenore"). To Quote the Turtles--"The Last Thing I Remember", I was a Turtles fan--"The First Thing I Knew" was--I love this album. Enjoy it!"
Turtle Music and 2 Zevon Songs

"Part of a 5 CD box set with almost everything good by the Turtles in their pre-TurtleMothers period, this CD also features 2 Warren Zevon composed songs -- "Outside Chance" and "Like the Seasons" Both are excellent and a must have for any Zevon fan.When I first heard "Happy Together" I thought it was a great song and had to get the 45. I flipped over the record to at least listen once to the flip side and fell in love with "Like the Seasons." It was a good match for a 45, two songs about losing a girl that you know you will never get back again.Enjoy the collection for what it is, a fine collection of great music that was not a chart-topper."
