Product Description

Product Description

The Pretty Things created some of the most exciting and innovative records of the mid to late sixties and early seventies. The band were recently awarded the Hero award at the Mojo Honours and have been name checked over the years by an array of artists ranging from The Clash, David Bowie and Aerosmith through to The Libertines and Kasabian. The band first burst onto the scene in 1965 with a blend of raw, explosive R&B. Over the course of several albums they evolved into psychedelic pioneers, releasing the first ever rock opera, with SF Sorrow, in 1968. They followed this with 1970's Parachute, which was named Rolling Stone's album of the year (ahead of Let It Be, Bridge Over Troubled Water, Atom Heart Mother and Led Zeppelin III). This 2CD set collects highlights from throughout their long career to offer a perfect introduction to the band's sound. The set has been compiled by the band's manager Mark St John who has also written new sleeve notes for the release, detailing the history of the band.

A super starter for the uninitiated 32 tracks covering 50 years two only available on this set a live 'Honey I need' and a studio version of the Beatles 'Helter Skelter' very different from the original. There is a mix of single songs and album tracks.
A great collection acting as an introduction to one of Britons great underrated bands, should have been bigger than the Stones.

5.0 out of 5 stars CD Introducing THE PRETTY THINGS 6 July 2013
By James Ott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This disc encompasses the last 50 years of classic remastered versions of their songs from different eras. The hidden gem of this collection of songs is the previously unreleased version of "Helter Skelter" (Beatles) for their fans. This song is as psychedelic as they were 40 years ago. This 2 CD set is a good listen and comes highly recommended.
