The Final Bow represents TPT's remarkable history on 2 concert film DVDs and 2 live recording CDs as well as a special 10" of Phil May and Dick Taylor's track selections. 
 
The 52-page hardback book is packed with live photography by Judy Totton, 'The Gospel according to Mark St. John' extensive sleeve notes and Phil & Dick's individual sleeve notes telling their tales of the ballsy, arrogant and ambitious band. The audio was recorded by Ben McCusker, mastered by Gwyn Matthias and produced by Mark St. John.
 
Invaluable to the development of British music, The Pretty Things have been a critical success and a huge influence on artists as diverse as David Bowie, Aerosmith, The Ramones, Bob Dylan, The Sex Pistols, The White Stripes, Kasabian and many, many more - who site their outrageous behaviour, incandescent stage performances and astonishing catalogue of remarkable, ground-breaking recordings as fundamental in the creation of their own work.
 
This electric performance features all of the youthful and incendiary vigour from their 60s beginnings, showing off a technical prowess by performing tracks from their full range of styles: first wave R'n'B, psychedelic rock, and the blues. Led by founding vocalist and guitarist Phil May & Dick Taylor, the band was driven by their current line-up consisting Frank Holland, Jack Greenwood & George Woosey and featured returns from original recording band members Skip Allen, Wally Waller & John Povey. The evening was transformed from unmissable to sensational with the guest performances of Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour on classics including "Cries from the Midnight Circus" & "L.S.D.", and legendary vocalist Van Morrison on blues classic "Baby, Please Don't Go" & soul standard "You Can't Judge a Book by its Cover". The Final Bow should be compulsory for anyone with the slightest interest in popular music and the youth and social revolution of the 1960s.
