Pretty Things Resurrection

Broadcast over the internet from Abbey Road studios on September Sixth, 1998, this recording documents the first live performance of the classic fourth album by the Pretty Things on the 30th anniversary of its release. S. F. Sorrow is the original rock opera, an inspiration for the Who's famous Tommy. Interlinked by the narration of Arthur Brown, this project shows a band that had evolved the art of songwriting with a thematic and musical intricacy to rival the Beatles and the Moody Blues. Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd joins his old mates for this one and adds his distinctive guitar lines to "She Says Good Morning," "I See You," Trust" and the instrumental "Well Of Destiny." Great salvage job for one of the era's neglected classics. (Snapper)
