Parachute, released in 1970, is the fifth studio album by the English rock band The Pretty Things, following . Sorrow and preceding Freeway Madness. It is their first album without guitarist Dick Taylor.
Sorrow is the Pretty Things' Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, and Yellow Submarine wrapped in one, then Parachute is their more succinct White Album and Abbey Road. It's not just a time line comparison. The Pretties made this fascinating LP in the same studio as the Fab Four, London's Abbey Road, with Beatles engineer Norman Smith producing.

Parachute is the title- and closing track from The Pretty Things’s 1970 album. Parachute ends the album on a disruptive note, providing a mood largely different from that of the rest of the album. The song begins with a quiet, drum-less, contemplative recital with several vocals overlapping.
Get the Picture? (The Pretty Things album). Get the Picture? is the second album by the English rock group The Pretty Things, released in 1965. Recording began on The Pretty Things' second album in around September 1965, just months after the release of their debut. It ended up being a haphazard affair thanks to a growing problem with drummer Viv Prince whose behaviour was becoming ever more erratic and reckless.
I love the Pretty Things and think they are one of the best bands that were never really too popular and known from their time. From 65-70 is definitely when they were the best as a band, and all of their albums then were unique. They were pretty much ahead of most bands music and style wise. They were rocking way harder than any band at the time they started, they played viciously and were young and rebellious. Parachute" really makes the album for me-it's the perfect finish, and a crucial ingredient for a classic album is a solid closer. Repertoire did a typically fine job of reissuing this album, with great sound, informative notes, and several bonus tracks-as is usually the case, they spoil the flow of the album if you listen straight into them after "Parachute," but they include some rocking and worthwhile songs (and a few mediocre ones as well).
