The Pretty Things: Parachute (LP, 180g Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Madfish) 13 tracks, gatefold cover
The Pretty Things were one of the longest-lived English rock bands.
In the mid-1960s, with their hard music and sinister image, they were considered one of the most striking bands of their time.
The Pretty Things also made rock history in 1968 - as the creators of what is believed to be the first rock opera S. F. Sorrow

The Pretty Things created some of the most exciting and innovative records of the late sixties and early seventies. The band, which won the Hero Award at the 2009 Mojo Honours, has been cited over the years by a range of artists from The Clash, David Bowie and Aerosmith to The Libertines and Kasabian.

After the now legendary and critically acclaimed psychedelic classic SF Sorrow, released in 1968, the band returned to Abbey Road and began work on Parachute.

The album was released in 1970 and was named Album of the Year by Rolling Stone.

This vinyl edition of the album is pressed on heavy (180g) vinyl and has been re-cut directly from the original Abbey Road master tapes.

"The Pretty Things"

The Pretty Things, formed by the Rolling Stones' original bass guitarist, Dick Taylor, and Phil May (born on Sept. 11, 1944) at Sidcup Art College in the autumn of 1963, were doomed by their scruffy image and Bo Diddley-bAsed rhy-thm and blues to the role of poor man's Stones. With Taylor switching to lead guitar, the rest of the line-up was May (vocals, harmonica), Brian Pendleton (rhythm guitar), John Stax (bass, harmonica), Viv Prince (drums).

They were signed up almost at once as the R&B boom hit the music in-dustry, but after early hits, the double-sided 'Big Boss Man'/ `Rosalyn' (Miy, 1964), 'Don't Bring Me Down' (November, 1964) and 'Honey I Need' (March, 1965) on Fontana, they failed to make the Stones' shift to their own material until, in a reorganized line-up, May and Taylor composed the biographical S. F. Sorrow (Harvest, 1968), supposedly an encouragement — if not an influence — for Pete Townshend's Tommy project. Following the departure of Taylor and the failure of the highly regarded Parachute album in 1969, the band folded for a time, re-forming to record Freeway Mad-ness (Warner Bros., 1972). In 1974, with May, Peter Tol-son (guitar), John Povey (keyboards), and Skip Alan (drums) still together from the Parachute personnel, plus Jack Green (vocals) and Gordon Edwards (bass), they signed with Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label for Silk Torpedo.
