Pop/Rock Review: The Turtles-45 RPM Vinyl Singles Collection

Release Date: September, 16, 2014
Label: FloEdCo/Manifesto


Flo and Eddie (Mark Volman & Howard Kaylan), two of the driving forces of the 60s pop stars The Turtles, have released all of their hits on a limited edition 7” vinyl box set. 8 newly mastered 45s that include 16 tracks. The music has been long out of print and will surely delight their fans and those that collect vinyl. Vinyl sales have been increasing for a few years now and the resurgence is helping artists to sell their music again. After all you can’t share or download a vinyl 45 in its original state.

This is the first time in the band’s history they released their entire hit singles collection in one vinyl box set including the lesser known rare tracks. I was just a little guy when they were in their prime but I do clearly remember their songs particularly “Happy Together,” “She'd Rather Be with Me” and “Elenore.” I am certainly not the only one in my age group or older that would remember those three songs. They all made their mark and are recognized worldwide to this day.

The attraction is not only the pure pop genius of these songs, it’s the presentation of high quality vinyl remastered specifically for the format. All the songs sound crisp and clear and you don’t need a high end stereo system to enjoy the 45s. This is timeless pop rock that is simple, original, and puts you in a time capsule all your own. If you grew up in that time period, remember it as a child, or this is an introduction, there is tremendous joy in what you will hear on this special release.

The 45 RPM Vinyl Singles Collection comes in a nice cardboard box and each record has a sleeve to protect it. It is music like this and the format that are attracting older fans and newer fans alike. This is history and now you can hold it in your hand, admire it, share with it family and friends and cherish it for years to come. Now tell me what download on iTunes can do that? There is only a limited amount of copies produced so get yours now!
