This two CD collection with the Turtles is probably the best and most comprehensive release so far covering the Turtles' recorded career. At a time when several of the group's original albums can be hard to find, "Solid Zinc" is even more attractive, containg several rarities and some previously unreleased tracks.
Besides the big hits the compilers have with safe hands selected the best tracks from the group's albums along with fine B-sides.
I was particularly pleased to note that songs like "So Goes Love," "Just a Room," "Cat In The Window" and "We Is not Gonna Party No More." were included. Naturally, all the group's fine hits are to be found and also a few tracks from the group's originally unreleased final album "Shell Shock".
A 40-page booklet containing detailed biography, notes on individual numbers, quotes from team members and much more, make the release even more attractive.
