A SAVOY BROWN box set. Must be plenty of stuff in those vaults. Looking In is still one of my favourite albums of that period.

Thanks Brass & Cornish for taking up the Pretty Things theme.

Cornish offered three very good collections - The Best of...Latest Writs is a good example of a label (Snapper) attempting a one-disc collection of a band with an extensive catalogue.

It has some great early singles, the psychedelic classics Defecting Grey & Talkin' About The Good Timesd a snatch of 70s stuff, but the new "Introducing" 2-CD set looks a rather excellent overview, well worth a fiver or so.

Original member and still the lead guitarist Dick Taylor was an original member of the Stones, as most bods on here will know, with classic LP SF Sorrow recorded at Abbey Road during the heady psychedelic maelstrom of '67/'68 that also produced Pink Floyd & Beatles classics - essential, Brass!

Looks like it is to me and it certainly starts at the beginning with Rosalyn.

Because it's only been out a month. Is it chronological (crucial IMHO where a band has been through various disparate phases)?

Must say it looks pretty damn good - how come I missed it !!

Their early stuff gave the Stones a run for their money for a while, infact everyone that I knew back then either liked both bands or neither.

Give a whirl and see what you think or check them out on Spotify or something similar first.

How does this new comp look?

Introducing Pretty Things

In reply to an earlier post on 17 May 2013 20:22:00 BDT
They started off as a raw R&B band with such a great sound, then morphed into almost a psychedelic band. S.F. Sorrow is a classic 60s UK concept album worth checking out.

Psychedelic Years, 1966-1970 offers a fair selection.Singles As & Bs & The Rhythm & Blues Years also offer a good selection.

From what I have read in the past, contractual/licensing problems have prevented a complete career overview in the past. As this was eventually overcome with the Duane Allman set, perhaps we will have a proper box of the Pretty Things with outtakes etc one day as they are a band that deserve it.

As a footnote I was lucky enough to me them in Abbey Road Studios many many years ago : )

Is there a good Pretty Things compilation Soundsearcher?

In reply to an earlier post on 17 May 2013 19:55:02 BDT
I have never knowingly heard them Soundsearcher! It was merely a sly reply to BOF.....but there you go. Synchronicity!

I think you've stumbled (or splashed) upon the need for a really decent Pretty Things box set, Smitty.

There are so many compilations and reissues on a score of PT CDs nowadays, from their Bo Diddley & Jimmy Reed roots through their 60s psychedelia, 70s Swansong stuff to the recent remakes, reissues and rediscovered stuff.

Few bands have such a long and varied back catalogue to plunder for a blockbusting box-set - still fantastic live if they're gigging anywhere near you, too!

Now why wasn't that the first thing that sprang into my mind?

Some girls will, BOF.

A remastered STONE THE CROWS box set would be a good thing in my book.

If Showaddywaddy have been boxed it can only be a matter of time before Shakin' Stevens gets one? The box could be accessed by a green door?

ER, Metal for Muthas Vol.1 is the (original) one if you can find it. Neal Kay's attempt at getting some of the bands we knew and loved live onto vinyl. Sadly nothing from the wonderful V1, but I don't know if they ever recorded.

Yes, Melanie's albums would be great, always loved her stuff, sings from the heart, totally convincing.

New Wave of British Metal '79 Revisited. I have had this wonderful comp since it was released and would love to see it re-released and expanded into a box set. Can't beat a bit of NWOBHM!

In reply to an earlier post on 16 May 2013 13:30:36 BDT
Yes, I would reckon you are correct, Peter.

In reply to an earlier post on 16 May 2013 13:30:03 BDT
Speak for yourselves. It is a harsh place this thread ;-)

How about U2, bound to be loads of unheard extras and live stuff to put on there
