Format: Audio CD
Originating from the US sunshine capital of San Jose, California, the Music Machine were fronted by Thomas Sean Bonniwell, a charismatic musical genius. Possessing a baritone voice, akin to Elvis and Jim Morrison, Bonniwell's vocals possessed a distinctive quality, one which had the ability to uplift and be darkly meloncholic. The Music Machine were born in 1966, after Bonniwell in his previous incarnation with the garage band rockers, The Raggamuffins had dispersed. Having a penchant and a passion for dressing in black and wearing the infamous Beatles mop tops, the Music Machine consisted of Keith Olsen on bass, Ron Edgar taking up the drums, Doug Rhodes lending his finger tips to play organ, Mark Landon on lead guitar, as well as Bonniwell taking the helm of playing rhythm guitar and supplying the lead vocals.
This particular album by these Californian hipsters is full of quality tunes, that possess Music Machine's trademark raw and boundless energy for playing nothing but top draw garage rock, tinted with an element of freakbeat and psyche.
The opening track, Talk Talk has now gained cult status amongst collectors of garage rock, and is perhaps one their better known recordings. Other stella moments include the cover version of the Beatles callssic, Taxman, Masculine Intention, The People In Me,See See Rider and on a lighter note, the lovely and breezy number, Cherry Cherry. However, this quality collection ends on a dark and brooding note, as the Music Machine's rendition of the Hendrix classic, Hey Joe is delivered with such heart rendering passion and feeling which will have even the most stone hearted sole singing along up into the heavens.

Anyone with an interest in checking out some of the American garage punk of the 60's would do themselves a big favour by starting off with this record.
The Music Machine basicly embody garage music, they released one hit single, one album and all members wore matching black clothes. The album contains their one hit, talk talk which is worth buying this record for alone. However their trump card is an excellant cover of probably the best garage song ever written 96 Tears (originally by ? and the mysterians) they make the song much faster and much more aggressive sounding than the original.
Other highlights are Come on in, Trouble, Masculine Intuition and The People in me.
This album is just short of perfection really, I usually avoid a couple of songs, but overall the album is really great, dead short (as all good garage albums should be)most songs don't go far over two minutes and it has one of my favorate album covers of all time.
Along with The Sonics, ? and the Mysterians,The Monks, The Kingsmen and the Standells, The Music Machine are one of the all time classic garage groups who are far too overlooked in the music history books. Considering how cheap this record just do yourself a favour and give it a listen.

Music Machine - '(Turn On) The Music Machine' (Repertoire) 9 Oct. 2006
By Mike Reed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Very good debut lp on CD reissue of the 1966 release of this short-lived garage rock band. Vocalist / guitarist Sean Bonniwell seems to be Music Machine's focal point. This twelve track disc might've been EVEN better, had it featured more of Machine's originals, like the smash hit single "Talk Talk", "Trouble" and "Some Other Drum". Their original material that I've even heard on another CD of theirs, 'Beyond The Garage' (see my review) was pretty decent. Covers here are nice, though like the Beatle's "Taxman", Neil Diamond's "Cherry Cherry" and ? And The Mysterian's "96 Tears". A should-have.

Excelentes originales, innecesarios covers 28 Mar. 2003
By "jaimeurrutia" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Music Machine es uno de los buenos grupos garajeros del 66' con todos los ingredientes necesarios (impecable voz, guitarra y órgano) y su disco debut contiene notables temas como Talk Talk, Trouble y Wrong. Sin embargo hay demasiados covers y aunque todos ellos son correctos vale la pena preguntarse por que un grupo capaz de hacer buenos originales tome prestados temas como Taxman, 96 tears, See see rider o Hey Joe. Al menos pudieron haber escogido algo menos conocido
