Released at the end of 1965, the Pretty Things' second album, GET THE PICTURE, proved to be a much more dynamic release than their debut. Although a number of tracks still sound distinctly like contemporaneous Rolling Stones songs, the notoriously wild British band was intent on expanding its sound here, with vocalist Phil May and guitarist Dick Taylor (an original Stone, in fact) penning a number of originals, rather than relying largely on old blues covers. "Buzz The Jerk" rides along on clanging percussion and razor-wire guitar lines, while the slinky title track brings to mind Donovan fronting the Kinks. Other highlights include the upbeat folk of "London Town" and the stinging sass of "Gonna Find Me A Substitute." In addition to the original album, this disc also presents a number of bonus tracks, most notably the energetic, Animals-esque single "Midnight To Six Man." The document of an ensemble quickly maturing musically (if not in the public eye), GET THE PICTURE is an underrated gem of mid-'60s British rock, and easily one of the Pretty Things' best records.
