If you want the entire back catalogue on vinyl, then you want The Pretty Things – The Complete Studio Albums 1965 – 2020.
That’s right; this is pretty much the lot when it comes to The Pretty Things’ studio output. The label Madfish did something similar on CD with extras approaching ten years ago. But times have changed. The world wants vinyl. So here’s the vinyl.
So, for the first time in one set, this is the complete studio album recordings of The Pretty Things, limited to 1,000 sets worldwide. But it comes at a price. More on that in a moment.
But let me tell you first that it encompasses the band’s self-titled 1965 debut, the psychedelic brilliance of S.F. Sorrow and what’s described as ‘more reflective latter day output’ such as Bare As Bone, Bright As Blood. 13 albums in total in this set.
All the albums have been remastered for vinyl and feature replica original artwork. Each album also comes with an individual, album-specific 4-page insert with rare photographs and original single sleeves (with words from Mike Stax, Dick Taylor and Mark St. John).
And it is all housed in a deluxe slipcase style box, with an exclusive pull-out print of the band in its prime.
Sounds tempting. But you will have to dig deep to own it. £329.99 is the price, with the set available to pre-order now ahead of the 31st March release date.
