The Pretty Things - Promo Film 1966

Dear friends,

With great pleasure I present you one of my favourite 60s bands, The Pretty Things from their 1966 promo film for their LP "Get The Picture" . The Pretty Things were one of the wildest groups which emerged from the UK in the 60s and have influenced hundrends of music groups.

In the live scene footages you can see their raw, powerful and primitive live performance !!!

In both parts you can see them in their 1966 line-up with:
Phil May: vocals
Dick Taylor: lead guitar
Birian Pendleton: rhythm guitar
John Stax: bass
Skip Alan: drums

The songs that are heard and performed in both parts are:
1. Me needing you
2. Midnight to six man (studio recording)
3. Can't stand the pain
4. Me needing you (live from a night club)
5. L.S.D (live from a night club)

PS: in part 2 on the 1:27 minute please note the Greek-Cypriot newspaper Χαραυγή (Haravgi). Amazing, Greeks are everywhere !!!!!
