Turtles Singles Get the Vinyl Treatment

Album Review



The Turtles

45 RPM Singles Collection (FloEdCo/Manifesto Records)

There's not much reason to get excited about yet another Turtles reissue, but this collection is of note because it arrives on vinyl. The box includes eight 7-inch vinyl 45s that feature the band's biggest hits. An L.A. group with a British sound, the Turtles were often compared to acts such as the Beatles, and that classic '60s pop sound comes through on tunes such as "It Ain't Me Babe," their cover of the song that was a big hit for Bob Dylan, and "You Don't Have to Walk Through the Rain." The collection also includes a few rarities, notably the Warren Zevon-penned "Outside Chance." Oh, and if you need an adaptor so your turntable can play 7-inch singles, don't worry: The set comes with one.
