The Best of Flo & Eddie

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Campbell
Mark Volman Flo once described the music created under the Flo & Eddie guise as embracing the Partridge Family and Redd Foxx on the same record. Rhino's 1987 Best of Flo & Eddie compilation captures that juxtaposition vividly. Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan Eddie were the voices and the main creative drive behind the Turtles. When that band disintegrated amidst financial and personnel problems in 1970, they were asked by Frank Zappa to join the Mothers of Invention, where they metamorphosed into the musical equivalent of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. Zappa encouraged them to interject and utilize the venom and anger they had harnessed during their troublesome Turtle years. ...

Mark Volman Flo once described the music created under the Flo & Eddie guise as embracing the Partridge Family and Redd Foxx on the same record. Rhino's 1987 Best of Flo & Eddie compilation captures that juxtaposition vividly. Mark Volman and Howard Kaylan Eddie were the voices and the main creative drive behind the Turtles. When that band disintegrated amidst financial and personnel problems in 1970, they were asked by Frank Zappa to join the Mothers of Invention, where they metamorphosed into the musical equivalent of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde. Zappa encouraged them to interject and utilize the venom and anger they had harnessed during their troublesome Turtle years. What would eventually came out captured the power pop drive of the Small Faces, the Raspberries, and Badfinger with lyrics ranging from downright hostility toward the music business and it's stars, manic melancholia drenched with impeccable harmonies, delivered with a smile that implied "the joke's on you." The Best of Flo & Eddie is taken from four albums released in the early to mid-'70s and includes a few songs they scored for two low budget films, Dirty Duck and Texas Detour. This material is matched only by a few other like-minded songs of the time; Nilsson's "You're Breaking My Heart" would be a fair comparison. These arrangements were tailor made as AM radio hits, but ended up being so lyrically outlandish they instead were embraced only by a handful of "hip" underground FM stations. WABX in Detroit was even brave enough to play host to the short-lived "Flo & Eddie Radio Show" in the '70s before they moved on to wreak havoc at KROQ in California. Volman and Kaylan made recordings that gleefully welcomed failure -- but only on their terms. They took an uncompromising stand and did their best to bully the very music business that had provided them with so much earlier success in the Turtles. The ultimate payback and essential listening.
