Wooden Head is the sixth album by pop rock band The Turtles. It is a compilation of b-sides and rarities mostly recorded in the group's early years and in some cases left unfinished.

Background[edit]

Wooden Head was first released in 1969 on White Whale Records. It was re-released on vinyl by Rhino Records, which took the opportunity to change the track listing to avoid duplicates in 1984 (RNLP 154). The album was again reissued as a compact disc in 1993 by Repertoire Records, and included seven bonus tracks.
