THE PRETTY THINGS
Balboa Island – Deluxe Edition
The 2007 album repackaged with interest.
While The Pretty Things have only managed two new studio albums this century, they’ve certainly proved that less can be more. Both last year’s The Sweet Pretty Things (Are In Bed Now Of Course…) and this reissued 2007 set benefited from an injection of grit and guts that many musicians a third of Phil May and Dick Taylor’s pensionable age could learn from.
