For a Finn like me, it was interesting that Philippe DeBarge /The Pretty Things release had a Finnish connection. A guy called Jorma Saarkangas had the acetate and it was transferred at YLE (finnish broadcasting company) studios by the legendary Pekka Gronow. I learned this only a few days ago as I don't have the record - now I gotta do something about that...

Doug in Boston:

Funny think about Norman "Hurricane" Smith was how he later said the psychedelic stuff didn't make any sense to him. Almost a put-down of his own fantastic work. His recording of "Oh Babe What Would You Say?" was a real throwback of the sort that I would guess Paul McCartney appreciated.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm
Photocopy Cha Cha:

@6:39 cometothesunshine: exactly. I am just very jealous I can't afford that one. It is easily in my Pretty Things top 5, and mono mixes of 60s stuff are more reasonably made, and often (like in the case of Beatles, Pink Floyd etc.) involved the performers' artistic input.

This is apparently produced by Glyn Johns - I am surprised it sounds so weird if that is indeed the case

The Pretty Things have always been a challenging subject to me kinda like what u were saying about the Parachute album, Andrew. Reminds me of Brandford Marsalis on the topic of Picasso of all things. Ha! He said with Picasso , for him, you have to go to it. Meet the subject on its own terms .

So who's responsible for the Progress mix?

Not sure - it was produced by Steve Rowland of the Family Dogg. He later produced Rodriguez

@7:47 cometothesunshine: OK, that makes me curious to hear it in its untouched form, like I said I like pretty rough sounds.
Avatar 7:49pm

Basically, the levels are really off so it can get louder later. They kinda needed to figure out editing or using and adjusting a limiter

I DJ-d a Wanda Jackson show & decided to play a lot of her own material & found great nuggets in the tons of Wanda LPs I had. I'd previously been dissapointed by a lot of her albums but found SO much great stuff hiding in there. The ppl putting on the show told me to stop playing her material so it was more of a personal journey than anything else.
