The group which started in 1965 with "It Ain't Me Babe" and "Let Me Be" and was considered Folk Rock continues on today as Flo and Eddie aand now appears as The Turtles . A trully great live act to see even today!!!. The group had no trouble in continuing on in the late sixty's with such great hits as "Happy Together", "She’d Rather Be With Me " , "Eleanore" , and " You Showed Me". This is a group which always could and still can make great music and entertain you with a great show at the same time, a rare talent. Flo is definitely the only person on earth who can really play the tambourine. If you see a tape of the group or see them in concert you will know what I mean. They are without a doubt my favorite group to see in concert. They are the only group which this statement can be made about "You do not even have to know one of their songs to enjoy their concert!" I have taken some friends which were not familiar with their work and did not believe that statement before the show to one of their concerts. They walked out believing this statement after seeing their act. They truly can entertain you with an absolutely great stage show. By the end of their concert you cannot help but to love their music. Flo and Eddie’s true names are Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan. They were the front men for the group The Turtles. One album which you should make sure is part of your collection is “The Turtles Featuring Flo & Eddie Captured Live” so you can hear MARK's   imitation of the Doors and Bruce plus many of their terrific hits. This also will prove to you that this is one group who still has the great excitement which made them famous. I also feel that the Turtles later work never received the recognition which it should have. I love some of their later work such as "Somewhere Friday Nite" and "Lady O". Flo and Eddie also did some tv work such as the Care Bears, which I would like to mention just to show how they can vary their style with no trouble. This shows what great performers they are!!!! .

The Group in 1969

The group was started in 1963 in Westchester NY  but their name was not the Turtles at this time. The orginal name of the group was The Crossfires.

   trxfrslogo.gif (13350 bytes)

This era of the group was a instrumental surf band. However in 1964 the group decided that it was time for a change and went on to become a folk -rock group . They also decided that it was time to change their name and had some names in their head such as the SIX PACKS . However their manager decided to make their name The Turtles since it sounded English . This was the height of the British Invasion and he wanted them to fit into the current music scene. Their first single was a Bob Dylan song called It An't Me Babe which went right up the charts like many of their singles which were to follow.
Singles included such songs as Let Me Be, You Baby, She'd Rather Be With Me, She's My Girl, Elenore, You Showed Me, Lady-o, and of course HAPPY TOGETHER.  The group admired The Beatles and always watched the direction which they were moving.  If the Beatles did it the Turtles did it which did send them in their next direction which was ACID ROCK . The group came out with a song called She's My Girl which was very acid rock-oriented. They had dabbled in this style earlier with Grim Reaper of Love which was not as successful.  . They continued on successfully until their was a money problem with their record company White Whale . It had appeared that the record company had shorted the group of a large sum of money and the group being the major factor which kept the company alive decided to quit the company. However basically the group broke up after this time period which was 1970 . Mark and Howard due to old contacts could not use the TURTLES name or even their own and this when they decided to become FLO AND EDDIE.  They recorded many albums under this name. It was not until the 80's that they came back as THE TURTLES and have been going strong ever since then.  They are still a top touring band today and are without a doubt one of the top stage showmen around even today.

    She Rather Be With Me !


When White Whale signed the Turtles, they were known as "The Crossfires"; a surf music band looking to change their style, as surf music was fading. The label encouraged a name change to "The Tyrtles", in the manner of The Beatles and The Byrds. The band accepted the new name, but not the variant spelling. Relations between the label and the band were not always smooth, with White Whale pressuring the band for "more hits", then for singers Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman to fire the rest of the group, and work instead with hired musicians, to save costs. Kaylan wrote the song "Elenore" as a humorous take on "Happy Together" (the group's biggest hit), which ironically became a hit itself. He and Volman also democratized the group, insisting everyone share in the writing and vocal duties, despite what the label wanted.

When the Turtles disbanded, White Whale lost their big moneymaker, and the label went out of business in the early 1970s. White Whale's assets were sold at auction, including the Turtles's master recordings whose winners were Kaylan and Volman, making them the owners of their own works.

Three compilations of singles from the label have been released on CD: "Happy Together: The Very Best of White Whale Records," and two volumes of the "Phantom Jukebox" series on Rev-Ola record
