One of my very favorite bands of retro legend were the TURTLES aka Flo & Eddie..Damn near very song they released charted...fabulous pop singers and song writers too... CHECK OUT THEIR WEBSITE

The Turtles were led by vocalists Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman (Fo&Eddie) The band became notable for several Top 40 hits beginning with their cover version of Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" in 1965. But their most popular hit was "Happy Together". That song is still cool. Even heavy rocker types loved that tune...The lyric was simple and pop but the vibe is still just so fine.....

The band, originally a surf-rock group called the Crossfires, was formed in 1965 in Westchester, California, by Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman. With the help of DJ and club owner Reb Foster, the Crossfires signed to the newly formed White Whale Records and adhering to the prevailing musical trend, re-branded themselves as a folk rock group under the name the Tyrtles, the intentional misspelling inspired by the Byrds and the Beatles. However, the trendy spelling did not survive long.
