The second of three tranches of three Pretty Things reissues in gold numbered limited editions begins with the group’s most celebrated album, SF Sorrow (1968), often cited as the first ‘rock opera’ and the model for The Who’s Tommy. It’s remarkable chiefly for its conceptual prescience. Parachute (1970) is a fair-to-middling concept album about city and country. Freeway Madness (1972) picks up where Parachute left off, and is about equal in quality. These albums, all three of which come with bonus tracks, are very much for fans.
