English rock band The Pretty Things created some of the most exciting and innovative records of the late-60s and early-70s. The group first burst onto the scene in 1965 with an explosive R&B sound far removed from their later psychedelic and hard rock guises. Second effort, Get The Picture? was issued the same year as the band's self-titled debut and it reflected the band's newfound songwriting confidence as well as the soul and mod sounds that were influencing them at the time. The record contains the two remarkable singles, "Midnight To Six Man" and "Come See Me," and listed among the composing credits is Jimmy Page, the most in demand session guitarist of the era. One of the nastiest, loudest, most controversial and influential bands the world has ever seen has never sounded better!
