THOSE HYPNOTIC HAWAIIAN RHYTHMS: Kudos to this weeks' Life on Mars for featuring one of the lesser-known tracks from the Turtles' classic 1968 Battle of the Bands platter, "I'm Chief Kamanawanalea," during a hippie drug sequence. Somebody at that 1973 party must've been canny enough to recognize the virtues of a band that would've been unjustly maligned as a Top 40's Oldies Act in '73 . . .
