Biography

The Pretty Things have been a magnet for controversy since their inception. At a time when the Rolling Stones were seen as the ultimate nonconformists, the Pretty Things made them look tame by comparison. The band members' hair was longer, their lifestyles wilder, and their music louder and more extreme. Although their commercial success was limited, the Pretty Things were able not only ...

There is little that can be done to levitate this album above the "transitional" or "period-piece" label that it deserves, although adding extra tracks is helping. "Emotions" was unfortunately sandwiched between two classic Pretty Things eras; the early R'n'B era and the psychedelic era which produced the inspirational "SF Sorrow" album. On the plus side, Emotions has a groovy cover, a cracking opener "Death Of A Socialite", and 2-3 other good tracks (the best being "Tripping"). But the record company overdubbed some dreadful orchestration, and the rest is a bit of dog's dinner. This release has 5 extra versions without the strings, and they sound so much better. It already had three extra tracks added for the original CD release (singles, b-sides), of which "House in the Country" is a curio as it's written by Ray Davies of The Kinks; however, one of these three has mysteriously disappeared (Me Needing You). What they should do now is add some more unreleased unstringed versions - they do exist - and then regig the running order so the new ones aren't just shoved in at the end. But a better buy than Emotions would be one of the compilations such as Unrepentant, The Psychedelic Years, or Latest Writs (a excellent one for Pretty Things beginners!).

Emotions was the third Pretty Things album, and it was radically different from the previous two, which were more or less typical British rhythm`n blues albums. On the second album "Get The Picture" they had already shown that they were very skilled songwriters, but with "Emotions" their musical ambitions led them into experiments with orchestral arrangements - or was it the record company that wanted to change their image? The album has often been criticized for being ruined by these Reg Tilsley strings and brass arrangements.

I agree that on some tracks these "outside" instruments do remove focus from the band and their music, but actually I think the album has aged very well. This is also due to some fine songwriting and great vocals from Phil May.

"Death of a Socialite" is a strong opener, great tune and vocals, and apart from the ending I think the arrangements works fine!

The single "Children" is a great catchy psychedelic-type song, practically Pretty Things with no "outside" interference. It was a minor hit in Denmark, and remember it being played regularly on Danish Radio.

"The Sun" is a quiet ballad. A version without strings is added as a bonus-track, so you can compare which you prefer. Personally I think I prefer the original strings-version, but both are great.

On "There Will Never be Another Day" the added instruments sound completely out of place; so it`s great that there is an undubbed version added. Probably one of the weakest tracks, though.

"House of Ten" is another fine quite number. The strings support the song discretely.

"Out in the Night" is not among the best songs, and the brass, makes it a track that I prefer jumping over.

Originally hit the stores in 1967, from what I could tell this was their third effort. Maybe not as good as their more desirable titles 'Get The Picture', 'S.F. Sorrow' or 'Parachute' but still very decent. Main reason this album was considered (sort of) a failure was that most of the song arrangements were simply too elaborate {at least for these guys}. Tracks I felt made this disc somewhat of a keeper are "Children", the snazzy "There Will Never Be Another Day", the hip "Out In The Night", both versions of "Photographer" and the stellar "My Time" (possibly the CD's best tune). Have to admit this disc does grow on you. Plus you get seven bonus tracks - which really help. Do check it out.
