1967's Golden Hits is notable for featuring remixes of 'It Ain't Me Babe', 'Let Me Be' and 'You Baby'. These are the only remixes done on early album tracks as the multi-tracks went missing shortly thereafter. These three remixes are almost always used on compilations, instead of the original wide stereo mixes.The 1970 album More Golden Hits contains stereo mixes of 'Sound Asleep', 'She's My Girl', and 'Who Would Ever Think That I Would Marry Margaret?'. The first two were briefly available on CD reissues in the mid-'90s, while the latter remained unique to More Golden Hits until its inclusion on All the Singles.

Wooden Head was a compilation album composed of unissued recordings, circa 1966. The Chalon Road compilation gathered together many unissued and 45-only tracks. Shell Shock was a compilation of material intended for an album recorded in 1969 that remained unfinished.

The artist credit for the 1970 single 'Teardrops' reads 'The Dedications'. This single was issued without the band's knowledge or consent, and 'The Dedications' concept was concocted by White Whale. All singles issued after this one (except for the 1978 12″) were released without the band's input or approval, but all are credited to The Turtles, regardless.

Begging your pardon then. We definitely did include the original arcade Turtles during our reconciliation process; you should see the documents! That track is the reason Miki Higashino was included in composers.

I think he meant the original TMNT arcade game, which is represented in Washudoll's remix.

Yeah that's what I was talking about.

It's represented only by virtue of having its music reprogrammed for use in the 16-bit titles. Same music, yes, but the platforms for the original source tunes arranged for the album were SNES and Genesis only.

'Cool! I hope Night Riders sounds good!'

'God I hope Night Riders is good'

'PLEASE BE GOOD'

'Holy shit, this is good!'

Anyway, amazing job putting this together KyleJCrb! What's next for you now? Possibly, one of the NES TMNT titles? Or will you direct something crazy like Battletoads? Whatever it may be I will look forward to it.

I absolutely love this album! 3 After listening to it on repeat at work, I still can't decide which track I like the best.

This album is rad, tubular, radical, awesome, um... outrageous, gnarly, groovy, funky, what other 90's term am I missing... *shrugs*

This album is intense-- especially that artwork! A few of the tracks blew me away with sheer energy. That VikingGuitar is one mean shredder (wordplay hahaha). My favorite of the bunch might have been the collaboration between WillRock and Sixto Sounds, two ReMixers who never fail to be radical.

Really digging the thematic consistency-- it definitely felt like a cohesive album with a vision of rock-- even if it did start to blend together a little without more variety. But hey, I can't complain when so many songs are winners!

Oh, and thank you, Washudoll, for naming your contribution 'Duh, Who Put the Lights Out?!'
