The essential early British R&B sound from the band that stubbornly refused to lie down to popular demand; The Pretty Things religiously stuck to their guns by making great, exciting, challenging and often violently aggressive records that just weren't quite acceptable enough to slot into the breathlessly presented but carefully airbrushed new youth-culture media. Includes the instantly recognisable 'Rosalyn', 'Don't Bring Me Down', "Cry To Me" and many other brilliant songs at the forefront of an evolving rock music scene through the 60s, 70s and 80s.

So, although this "Greatest Hits" album has few charted songs, it is a truly meaningful historical document of the greatest band with the fewest hits, but with the best music. This version of The Pretty Things' Greatest Hits will be released as a double LP pressed on to 180g heavyweight audiophile vinyl in gatefold packaging, complete with individual track commentary from band members Dick Taylor and Phil May in the liner notes, plus an introduction from long-time manager Mark St. John. The final track "Mr. Tambourine Man" was originally offered to The Pretty Things, who turned it down before The Byrd's infamous version was recorded; now the band have finally recorded their own take in 2016 keeping true to their style of the time.
