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”.
