Foggy G, "The Songs That Were Played," We're Only In It For The Touring

1971: Ah, the Turtles sing the Beatles! The beauty (of which I have yet to hear), the majesty (of which I am not sure I want to hear), the morbid curiosity (which means eventually I will force myself to hear). But for now, a simple description- possibly by you?- will suffice. [Biffy the Fall '71 Shrew writes: "I Want To Hold Your Hand" was a completely straight rendering of the song, with no perverted lyrical or musical content added. The one tape I have with this song (Dusseldorf) has it as the very first song after the intro jam. A bit ragged vocally, but fun and spirited. The story of the Rainbow assault suggests that it was also used as an encore.] And yes, it was used as an encore in at least two of the Eurpoean shows.
