Over seven hours of audio - restored and remastered, 50-page booklet with liner notes by Richard Morton Jack featuring archive memorabilia and photos.

Drawn from Saturday Club, Beat Room, Top Gear and Sounds of the 70s, plus more recently the Mark Lamarr and Marc Riley shows. BBC broadcast material from 1964-2018 curated by Colin Harper. Features a recent interview by Chris Welch with founder member and guitarist Dick Taylor.

In the golden age of the British R&B revival, few groups created as much excitement and controversy as The Pretty Things. They came up alongside the Rolling Stones in the early 1960s, but were deemed by critics and fans as wilder and bluesier than even Mick Jagger & co. When long-haired Phil May sang and shook his maracas with manic intensity, audiences and record buyers knew they were in for a wild ride. But The Pretty Things took their music seriously and developed into one of the more innovative rock bands of the 70s, much admired by groups and artists from Led Zeppelin to David Bowie.

This superb box set has informative liner notes by Richard Morton Jack, progressive rock historian and editor of Flashback magazine, and includes an interview with Phil May discussing the recordings. Repertoire's Chris Welch also interviews founder member guitarist Dick Taylor, who reminisces about the early days of The Pretty Things and pays tribute to his old friend Phil May who sadly passed away in 2020.
