The Pretty Things - Honey I Need - Beat uit Blokker - 3-4-1965 • TopPop
The Pretty Things are an English rockband who started in 1963 in Londen by singer Phil May and guitarist Dick Taylor. The greatest success came in November 1964 when 'Don't bring me down' entered the Top 10 in England. The self-written 'Honey I need' did a little less at the beginning of 1965, but in March of that year The Pretty Things were the stars of the Blokker festival on the AVRO TV. Their Dutch record company Phonogram Records released Bo Diddley's 'Road Runner' from the first LP and that became the best-known song of the Pretty Things in the Netherlands. The band made a smashing impression on the Dutch beat musicians and they had a major influence on the origin of the 'Nederbeat'.
This unique recording was made at that 'Beat From Blokker' TV performance of the Pretty Things, their first gig in Hollland.
It was broadcast live by AVRO TV on 19 April 1965.
In November 2018 the Pretty Things did their farewell tour in Holland.
