The Turtles are one of the most fondly remembered ?60s pop acts?quite an achievement considering that they came up in an era dominated by Motown, The Beatles and other musical giants. After releasing a series of chart-topping singles, including the #1 hit "Happy Together," the band broke up in 1970. Singers Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan continued as a duo under the name Flo & Eddie, recording albums, hosting their own syndicated radio show, and singing backup for T. Rex, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Blondie, and many others. In 1985, they reformed The Turtles as a very successful touring outfit. Happy Together: The Very Best Of The Turtles collects the band?s biggest hits, including the career-defining "Happy Together" and Top 20 smash hits "You Showed Me," "You Baby," and "Elenore." The album also features an early Warren Zevon-penned song, "Outside Chance," and Bob Dylan?s "It Ain?t Me Babe," as well as the classic protest anthem "Eve of Destruction."
Great 60's group from the past

"The mastering of the music on this cd is horrible. Alot of the songs sound scratchy. Not much bass and the treble is very harsh. Do not buy this cd, or you'll be throwing your money away like I did. I would recommend buying "The Turtles 20 Greatest Hits", by Rhino records.
The Turtles deserve better than this. Don't buy cd's from Shout Factory."
One Of The Great Groups Of Years Gone By

"This is one of the groups of the 60's if you want something to remember, or learn about from back then. They had a lot of great hits along with Peter & Gordon, Chad & Jeremy, Herman's Hermits, Gerry and the Pacemakers, & the Lovin Spoonful, just to name a few. Don't take my word for it. Listen to the sample songs and buy it for yourself. I just happened to grow up in the 60's so I didn't have a problem loving every song. After you buy this you may want to try some of the other groups next. It becomes a Blast into the Past or for those like me, a trip down Memory Lane.

"Happy Together is one of my all time favorite songs. When I buy albums such as this from the sixties I usually do so for nostalgic purposes to recapture 1 or 2 old favorite songs from my youth. With most albums it turns out that there are only 1-4 good tunes from whatever 60's band. This album surprised me in that almost every song was a delight that stood on its own. It is an album I like to play in its entirety, not just for one or 2 picks. These guys were a talented group, great on melody, lyrics and good hooks. They're still out there perfroming too. I don't think you can go wrong with this purchase. Certainly better than most best of 60's group albums. It will give you lots of happy flashbacks.
