Classic Turtles Deluxe

Double disc deluxe editions of a pair of Turtles classics ("The Turtles Present The Battle of the Bands",
"Wooden Head") fleshed out with a metric ton of bonus material......all I can say is if you only know "Happy Together", there is a good deal you are missing out on.

On a related matter, anyone have The Flo and Eddie album (albums?) from ca. early 70's.......they were part of Zappa's circle (2 former Turtles).......used to have that LP ages ago, love to hear it again.

"Battle" features the Turtles performing as various "different" bands, quite a novel idea for the time, "Wooden Head" is more want theses, and may wish to hurry!

  1. Didn't know about these. I've been a Flo & Eddie and Turtles fan for ever. Willard had the F&E records online. You might still be able to track them down...

  2. There's a bunch of Flo and Eddie albums, but I only have their first one. And now you do, too!
