The_Pretty_Things Cross_Talk CD Madfish Remaster
Cross Talk (1980) was to be the triumphant return of the Pretty Things. The band had been dormant for more than three years, but in 1979 Phil May and Pete Tolson started writing together again, and with the help of Dave Gilmour recorded some demos. The album pulled together an A-team Pretty Things line-up of Pete Tolson, Wally Waller, Jon Povey, Skip Alan, and making his return to the fold after ten years away, founding member Dick Taylor. 
The album marked a brave new sound for the Pretty Things. Not for the first time they had completely reinvented themselves, and in doing so created one of their defining albums. Cross Talk was also a starkly personal statement for Phil May as a lyricist. May considered Cross Talk to be among his proudest artistic achievements; its commercial failure remained one of his most bitter disappointments.
