✨✧ TurtlesTurtles Present The Battle of The Bands ... LP
White Whale, Late 60s. Very Good Gatefold ... $6.99
One of the coolest concepts ever for a 60s rock record – and maybe one of the standout sets from The Turtles! The album is set up as a "Battle Of The Bands" – one that has the group pretending to be a different ensemble from track to track on the record, either Natures Children, Fats Mallard & The Bluegrass Fireball, The Bigg Brothers, The LA Bust '66, and many other fake combos – all in a way that offers up a brilliant commentary on rock music in the late 60s! The effortlessness with which the group approaches the songs is fantastic – each number could have been a hit for the individual groups, were they real. One of our favorite tracks is the incredible "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea", played by the Royal Macademia Nuts – which has an incredible funky breakbeat all the way through! Another nice one is the funky cut "Buzzsaw", which has a fuzzy guitar groove that sounds a lot like "Tramp" – and other titles include "Surfer Dan", "The Last Thing I Remember", "Elenore", "You Showed Me", "Food", and "Chicken Little Was Right".

✨✧ TurtlesIt Ain't Me Babe ... LP
White Whale, Mid 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic debut from The Turtles – and the kind of rock-solid set that shows that the group had so much more to offer than just a few hits that got overplayed on oldies radio! There's a wonderful blend here of folk currents and garage jangle – almost like The Byrds right around the same time – with elements that vaguely hint at trippier territory, but always focus back strongly on the more tuneful side of the music! Production is wonderful – tight, but never too slick – and the group really have a wonderful way of transforming tunes originally recorded by others – as you'll hear on tracks that include "Wanderin Kind", "It Was A Very Good Year", "Like A Rolling Stone", "Love Minus Zero", "It Ain't Me Babe", "Let Me Be", "Eve Of Destruction", and "Glitter & Gold".

✨✧ Malvina ReynoldsLittle Boxes & Magic Pennies – An Anthology Of Children's Songs 1960 to 1977 (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Iron Mountain Analog Research, 1960s/1970s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
A long-overdue collection of the really special, really unusual songs written and sung by Malvina Reynolds – one of the strangest talents to emerge from the 60s, partly because her age was in the same range as the decade! Reynolds had long been a force on the political left on the west coast scene – but it wasn't until later in life that she started writing songs – and did a surprisingly great job, thanks to a pointed wit, and a no-nonsense approach that often made her songs as sweet as they were biting! Even when serving up songs for kids, as she does here, there's kind of a darker vision behind the music – one that seeks to open minds as much as charm them. Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, and others recorded her music – but nobody sings it better than Malvina herself – as you'll hear on this collection of tracks that mostly includes early 70s sides for the Century City, Pacific Cascade, and Cassandra labels – as well as tracks from her 1960 "discovery" album on Folkways. Titles include the classic "Little Boxes" – used famously on the show Weeds – plus "Artichokes", "The Pets", "Morningtown Ride", "Sweet Stuff", "Little Birds", "Magical Food", "The Whale", "Turn Around", "Never Touch A Singing Bird", "My Street", "I Live In A City", "One Shoe", "Funny Big Basin", "Black Horse", "Don't Push Me", and "It's Up To You". LP, Vinyl record album
