The Turtles, Pre-1972 Copyright Warriors, Reissuing Their Out-of-Print Studio Albums

While legal battles over pre-1972 recordings wind their way through the courts, one of the artists taking the lead on whether copyright owners have performance rights over those older tracks is making it easier for fans to hear their music. Billboard reports.

The Turtles, whose hits include “Happy Together” and “She’d Rather Be With Me,” have announced a career-spanning box set that will feature the band’s six long-out-of-print albums.

Arriving Aug. 19 on the group’s FloEdCo label, in association with Manifesto Records, The Complete Original Albums Collection will have everything the group released between 1965 and 1970: It Ain’t Me Babe, You Baby, Happy Together, The Turtles Present the Battle of the Bands, Turtle Soup and Wooden Head. An aptly titled 2-CD collection called All the Singles is also being prepped and contains… all the band’s singles, plus the b-sides, of every 45 they released on original label White Whale.
