The Pretty Things - The Very Best Of


This German collection from the Repertoire label collects 26 tracks from the chronically underrated British Invasion group the Pretty Things. The Very Best of the Pretty Things is nearly identical to Shout Factory's excellent 2004 overview, Come See Me: The Very Best of the Pretty Things, though it lacks a few early cuts like "Roadrunner," "You Don't Believe Me" and "Judgement Day." That said, you can hardly go wrong with classic cuts like "Roslyn," "Don't Bring Me Down," "Come See Me," "Defecting Grey," and "Talkin' About the Good Times," all of which help to bolster popular opinion that the Pretty Things could easily beat up your favorite band, as well as your dad ~ James Christopher Monger (allmusic).
