  1. Another excellent comp, Glenn. Thank you!

  2. Thanks for another great collection Glenn.The Turtles song is outstanding, 'cause to me it's so unlike the sound I remember as the Turtles'. It was this week in 1969 that the Turtles and The Temptations played at a White House party hosted by Tricia Nixon. Legend has it that Howard Kaylan got upset that nobody seemed to be paying attention to the music, so he threw some of the band's equipment into the White House swimming pool, and that the band snorted cocaine on a desk that once belonged to Abraham Lincoln. The sixties...what a time, we'll never see the like again, but thanks to you we can listen, thanks again Glenn for bringing back the good memories.

  3. Currently listening to this. Starting to get that giddy feeling that happens when I hear some good tunes. Thanks

  4. I've heard one other Shonen Knife song, "Insect Collector". Very unusual yet good listening. She must be one of those ever evolving, underground artist types.
