The Pretty Things – Singles As & Bs

R&B/psychedelic/rock odyssey charted in 45s

Trending Now

During the early-’60s The Pretty Things were promoted as still more outrageous than The Rolling Stones, and their wild R&B strove manfully to live up to this image. Hits like “Rosalyn”, “Don’t Bring Me Down”, and “Midnight To Six Man” did the business for the band before they went psychedelic in 1967 with the flower-power classic “Defecting Grey” and the concept album S.F. Sorrow. This three-disc set follows their career, through various line-up changes, to 1999.
