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. From their original incarnation as surf band The Crossfires, all the way to their final single, the Turtles traversed several different musical paths during their career. It is precisely this power through diversity that makes the Turtles’ body of work one of the most rewarding and enjoyable of the 1960’s – they never met a genre they didn’t like. Edsel Records is proud to present the band’s six albums, each as a 2 CD digipak set.
2CD SET: 1969 album & only to feat. all original material. Disc 2 incl. songs the bandoned follow-up album "Shell Shock" plus demos and outtakes. Newly re-mastered by Bill Inglot.
Cosmoganic has whipped up something quite tasty in his most recent, wholesome release, "Harness the Soup". As an eight-course meal, featuring creamy psydub and earthy swamp, it’s a gorgeous symphony meant to satisfy any dance floor or curious audiophile. This hypnotic whompfest takes us on a groovy dive into an electric ocean of head-bobbing rhythms and crunchy melodies. Its alluring harmonies and tribal drumscapes are refreshing, to say the least, intertwined against a backbone of memorable composition. Prepare for an auditory treat; your soup is ready.
2018 live release. February 17th 2018 - the biggest night in Bowling for Soup's almost twenty five years together as a band. That evening, the band played to four and a half thousand people at London's Brixton Academy on the closing night of their most successful UK tour in their history - The Get Happy Tour 2018. Several months later, Bowling for Soup are delighted to confirm that the Brixton show was captured in all it's hilarious and entertaining glory. The Get Happy Tour 2018 saw Bowling for Soup play their iconic album Drunk Enough To Dance in full, with a selection of the band's other biggest hits like 'High School Never Ends', '1985' and 'Today Is Gonna Be A Great Day (Phineas and Ferb)'. The non Drunk Enough To Dance songs were mixed in throughout the set to keep the fans guessing at what surprises may come next - something which worked to great effect throughout the tour - and every twist and turn was captured at the Brixton Academy show for Bowling for Soup fans all around the world to enjoy.
