This was The Turtles first album, released in the wake of the title song becoming a Top Ten hit. "It Ain't Me Babe" is a cover version of a Bob Dylan song, and the rest of the album is folk rock in that vein. There are two other Bob Dylan covers here, which are decent, if uninspired. There are four other folk rock covers, which are good efforts. I especially like "Your Maw Said You Cried" and "Eve of Destruction". "It Was a Very Good Year", incidentally, pre-dates Frank Sinata's version. There are four original songs here, contributed by singer Howard Kaylan. Howard's songwriting would later improve, but these songs are good early efforts. The CD adds three bonus tracks. "We'll Meet Again" is a fun version of a World War II era British song. The strange "Grim Reaper of Love" was the Turtles fourth single, which was a flop, but it's a great song. "So Goes Love" is a pretty ballad, which was later recorded by The Monkees. It has to be mentioned that the songs are in primitive binaural (two-track) stereo (with the exception of the last two bonus tracks). The instruments are in the right speaker and the vocals are in the left speaker. If you have heard the stereo versions of The Beatles early albums, you know what I'm talking about. I would recommend this album to The Turtles fans, or fans of folk rock in general.

The Turtles were throughout their career a band with serious identity issues. "It Ain't Me Babe" represents their beginnings, aurally and conceptually miles away from their later hits like "Happy Together."
For in the beginning, the Turtles were a Serious Folk Rock group. This, of course, was a bit odd in the first place--heck, they had only recently ceased to be a Rockin' Teenage Surf Combo--but as Mark and Howard tell it in the Happy Together retrospective DVD, Folk Rock was marketable, so the group jumped in.
The result is an interesting stab in a direction the group would soon abandon. While I personally prefer the material on Wooden Head, "It Ain't Me Babe" caries a strong set of material, from a fairly-inspired set of Dylan covers (the title track, "Love Minus Zero") to...well, a "why did they even bother?" Dylan cover ("Like a Rolling Stone"). The songwriting is embryonic, but is still fairly pleasant, and while the band certainly has chops, they do sound fairly mannered and anonymous on some cuts. It's still *good*, though, and if the Turtles as Angry Young Men appeals to you, It Ain't Me Babe is a great place to start.
Strangely, while Sundazed usually turns out impeccable CD issues, this particular album is an unpleasant exception. The sound quality of the album (which, by the way, is presented in its original we-want-to-be-the-Beatles-unnecessary-vocals-on-one-side-instruments-on-the-other-EXTREME stereo...check out the Repertoire CD for a more listenable mono mix, or the various hits compilations for a more sensible mix of the title track) is fine, but the bonus tracks are skimpy, with only one track unavailable anywhere else (this stereo mix of We'll Meet Again only shows up here, as far as I recall).

The Turtles' first album is very unlike their later work; unlike the "good-timin'," sardonic approach of their later work, the Turtles here go for more of a direct folk/protest rock approach. The album's title song was a big hit, but your enjoyment of this album is strictly based on how much you like this genre (unlike some of their later work, which is just GOOD).
Oddly enough, the Turtles catalogue is one of the few that legendary reissue label SUNDAZED did a less-than-satisfactory job on. Thankfully, this REPERTOIRE RECORDS corrects most of those issues, and is absurdly geared towards completists; it offers the complete mono and stereo versions of this album, along with two bonus tracks! (by comparison, the Sundazed issue is only in stereo, has different bonus tracks, and is missing Let Me Be).
To conclude, this is a good enough album, but is definately not for the first-time Turtles listener. And if that doesn't sound professional...

The turtles had just morphed from a surf band 'the crossfires' (you can get that release on amazon.com) into this incarnation a electric folk and pop rock band! And they really make one of the best discs of this type ever. They were obviously influenced by bob dylan and others and they cover folk songs like 'glitter and gold' and make them electric and poppy even! This split is even evident on their next release 'you baby' with some of the electric folk/pop mix still on that one with great pure GUITAR driven rock pop. This would be gone by 1967's 'happy together" which is pure rock pop but this one was a great cd in it's own right. Casual fans will enjoy this one but will want to start perhaps with later releases.
But even so there isn't a bad song on this one!

The Turtles' first album "It Ain't Me" has been re-re-released by Flo & Eddie. This bare bones set has the original mono album and then copies the set in stereo which for the most part splits the vocals into one speaker and much of the backing instrumentation in the other. The P.F. Sloan song "Eve of Destruction" which was a protest hit for Barry McGuire is here. Sloan, sometimes compared to songwriter Jimmy Webb, also penned the Turtles hit "Let Me Be" that shines here. Howard Kaylan's "A Walk in the Sun" shines well on the disc. "Last Laugh" also puts a smile on my face with Kaylan running up and down the scales. The Barry Mann/Cynthia Weil penned "Glitter & Gold" is a sterling pop tune from mid-60s. This album has been re-released several times. "Grim Reaper of Love" and the Carole King track "So Goes Love" is not on the Flo & Eddie version. There are no liner notes or even songwriters listed, although these can be found on the net. "It Ain't Me Babe" was a great set that launched a short but blazing career. Enjoy!
