Hey Joe!

Man that is some wild Pretty Things sounds. Amazing. Very cool stuff. They barely barely got any airplay in LA. Middle of the night kind of stuff, by one or two DJ's. At least Dick Taylor went on and had some success after the earliest stones bits.

Thanks for the soundscape!

the pretty things didn't get much airplay here either, they were an underground, word-of-mouth thing here. i heard about them after the who's tommy came out and somebody told me that tommy wasn't the first rock opera, the pretty things' sf sorrow was. i had to order it, but i finally got my hands on it.

have a good one!
