Performer Notes
  • Producers: Ray Davies.
  • Reissue Producer: Bob Irwin.
  • TURTLE SOUP is rightly considered to be the band's finest album. With all the material self-penned, they were now calling their own shots, including their choice of Ray Davies as producer. This was Davies' first non-Kinks work and the band came up with songs that were right up the Englishman's alley. The sound bears more than a passing resemblance to The Kinks, with acoustic guitars, plucked basses, and simple but sturdy drumming (John Barbata had departed and this was John Seiter's debut with the band).
  • While TURTLE SOUP didn't yield hits as big as previous, it's a broader, richer recording. Their preceding album, PRESENT THE BATTLE OF THE BANDS, had hinted at their interest in tackling a fuller album statement, which TURTLE SOUP completely accomplished. Sadly, this was the final album The Turtles completed before disbanding (though WOODEN HEAD, compiled from unused tracks, was a fine posthumous release).
