4 CD set. 60 Remastered tracks. Over 4¼ hours of music. Rare BBC archive recordings. Authoritative liner notes and band quotes.

The most comprehensive collection of the Pretty Things’ BBC ‘live’ recordings on the market, with several previously unreleased tracks, now all together for the first time on this newly remastered 4CD set, assembled with the assistance of the BBC.

Sourced from the BBC archives, this newly updated 60-track set covers numerous songs from the 1960s & 1970s period - including smash hits such as ‘Rosalyn’, Don’t Bring Me Down’, ‘Midnight To Six Man’, R&B standards ‘Road Runner’ and ‘Route 66’, and later classic album tracks ‘Defecting Grey’, ‘S.F. Sorrow Is Born’, ‘Singapore Silk Torpedo’ and ‘Dream / Joey’.

These sessions were recorded by the world renowned broadcasting organisation for radio and TV.

Our CDs explore all the Pretty Things’ BBC Radio One output, including 1960s ‘Top Gear’, ‘Saturday Club’, the later ‘Peel Sessions’ and ‘Sounds Of The 70s’, the ‘BBC In Concert’ series and legendary TV shows such as the ‘Old Grey Whistle Test’, amongst others.

The collection has been expertly remastered by Jon Astley (who has worked on recordings of The Who, Led Zeppelin, George Harrison and many others).

Detailed data in the booklets, that also include authoritative liner notes by Richard Morton Jack, editor of ‘Flashback’ magazine, and features new quotes from the Pretty Things Phil May and Dick Taylor.
