Most of you probably know about the connection between the Stones and the Pretty Things. Guitarist Dick Taylor left Mick Jagger and crew just prior to the band putting out their very first lp - the rest as they say is history. I thought 'Balboa Island' was way better than their 1999 comeback 'Rage...Before Beauty' disc. I listened to this CD several times before reviewing it. About every track here has something to offer the old school fans. Couple of tracks that sound like they might've actually been recorded in the late '60's are "the Beat Goes On", "Pretty Beat" and the hippie-like "All Light Up". Other notable goods are the bluesy "Living in My Skin", the eight-minute "(Blues For) Robert Johnson", "Buried Alive" - which feature some nice harmony vocals and good guitar riffs, their decent cover of Bob Dylan's "Ballad Of Hollis Brown" and "Feel Like Going Home" - which sort of reminded me of the Stones or maybe Ten Years After. A definite should-have.

The Boys from the Dartford Delta are back with a great collection of songs. Dartford should be on the world map of Rock music because of the Pretty Things and the Rolling Stones.
This is one of their best LPs; they may be getting older but they still have that rebellious streak and make great rock music.

How do you review a band who have been around 40 years and single handedly created punk?
Well this album is in my opinion one of the best of their career (11 albums) discounting the amazing singles collection.
stand out tracks for me are "pretty beat" and " all light up". When listening to their songs try to remember these guys influenced The Rolling Stones and The Eagles to change their own styles, this is an amazing fact in itself. Often over looked and often under rated these guys still have the magic in their 50's!
Awsome, buy it now!!
