The boys done good!

This is The Pretty Things' first studio album for nearly 20 years, and it's with the classic 1960s line-up. However, it is actually a bit of a mixed bag. This album was re-released a few years later and is much better, so I'd get that one if I was you. In fact the new version is GREAT.
Some tracks are brilliant - the biographical Vivian Prince about their wild original drummer - and Goin' Downhill in particular. Some are fillers - Everlasting Flame and Mony Mony. And some are, well, best put at the end of the album - st-john's God Give Me Strength.
Also, some tracks - such as Goin' Downhill and the cover of Eve Of Destruction - were made a decade before and by a completely different line-up.
Great to see them recording again, but buy the re-released version of this album.
