Pretty Things: 1967-1971
Genres: Pop, Rock, Classic Rock
Very close to S.F. Sorrow, Part 2
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Although it's not any part of the conceptual storyline of S.F. Sorrow, I feel the music is very similar to the S.F./Parachute-era Pretty Things. The bratty days of the Pretties were closing out,a nd more of the paisley wiggy of their mid-era was phasing in. To me, the highlight was the single "Talkin' About The Good Times". Signature Pretties all the way...with mellotron and sitar typical of the late Sixties era...and those lush higher register with a touch of Brit angst vocals. Some of the latter stuff sounds a little muddy towards the end of side two (I have the Harvest Heritage vinyl issue), like they might have been out takes from the Freeway Madness era."

"A good, thirteen track compilation CD of the Pretty Thing's repertoire - of cuts that first showed up on 'S.F. Sorrow', 'Parachute' and 'Singles A's & B's'. Some of the better tunes here include "Defecting Grey", the vintage "Private Sorrow", "October 26", the catchy "Circus Mind" and "Stone Hearted Mama". Be sure to check out their new 2007 release 'Balboa Island' (see my review) - you won't regret it."

"a very good collection that compliments sf sorrow and parachute(three of the tracks are on these albums) very well. the pretty things should be a part of every 60s fan's collection. there are a couple of weak tracks but in general this is a pretty good introduction to the group and the rarities on this cd include some of the pretty things best work: defecting grey(a truly awesome piece of english psychedelia), talkin' about the good times, cold stone, circus mind, and october 26 to name just a few.if you like early pink floyd, tomorrow, the move, and groups like that you'll like this stuff."
