Massive Pretty Things Box Coming Soon...

On February 23 Madfish Music will be releasing a massive CD/DVD/Acetate Box Set devoted to the greatest underground British psych-R&B-Rock opera-ing bunch of long-haired miscreants of the sixties. Bouquets from a Cloudy Sky collects every Pretty Things album, a double-disc of oddities, their excellent live performance of the first LP-length rock opera S.F. Sorrow from 1998, and most momentous of all, Reelin' in the Years Productions' (formerly) cancelled double-DVD of Pretty performances Midnight to Six 1965-1970.
No word yet on whether or not S.F. Sorrow will be included in its definitive mono or less-definitive stereo edition and whether or not these are new remasters. Several of the terrific "Electric Banana" sessions cuts are missing, but loaded with great music, videos, and what looks to be lavish packaging, Bouquets from a Cloudy Sky could very well be the release of 2015. It can now be pre-ordered from Burning Shed.com here.

And now the specs:

* All 11 studio albums on CD in gatefold digi-sleeves, including 42 bonus tracks.

* 2 'Rarities' CDs with 45 previously unreleased demos, alternate versions, live recordings, sessions and outtakes.

* 2 DVDs with new documentary Midnight To Six 1965 - 1970, produced by Reelin' In The Years, plus S.F. Sorrow Live at Abbey Road, The Pretty Things on Film, promo videos and interviews.

* 10" 'replica acetate featuring 'Defecting Grey' full length demo and 'Turn My Head' (studio version), plus 2 other previously unreleased tracks.

* A lavishly illustrated 100 page hardback book featuring a comprehensive Pretty Things history by Mike Stax (Ugly Things), plus rare photos and memorabilia.

* Family Tree and testimonial posters tracing the band from Little Boy Blue & The Blue Boys and The Rolling Stones to the present day and featuring hand-written messages from Pretty Things past and present.

*Court case history - Excerpts from confidential legal files from the band's battles to retrieve their rights and songs.

*Brand new art print by Phil May the original of which will be randomly placed in one lucky set! (One lucky box will have Phil May's original signed art!)
 

Strictly limited to 2000 copies.
