Balboa Island


Releasing their 2007 CD on the New York based world jazz label Zoho, The Pretty Things reform for Balboa Island. Now in their fifth decade as rock icons, the band sound true to their historic ‘60s roots with both lead singer Phil May and founding guitarist Dick Taylor in fine form. More Delta blues than the high brow Abbey Road studio glory of their Norman Smith produced rock opera SF Sorrow, the 13 track Balboa Island is nevertheless a solidly produced current statement from a band once favorably compared to both the Stones and The Who. By the time track 11 rolls around, “Dearly Beloved” it hits you’re hearing a great comeback album by a rock legend.
