Pretty bad video; pretty good music

"As a fan of the Pretty Things, I was pleased to see a video of a live performance other than just SF Sorrow. The music is quite good, but the video itself seems to have been shot by amateurs. Heads are sometimes cut off and the struggles of the photographer to center the images is apparent; it looks like a hand-held camcorder video.
However, the product came with a cd of the concert, which was not advertised, and that is quite good. "Havana Bound," "Rosalyn" and "Don't Bring Me Down" are my favorite tracks. Having never seen the Pretty Things in concert, there is one aggravating aspect which sticks out: Phil May doesn't like to let a song end without saying "Baby."
Still, it's amazing these guys are still around and any fan of their music should find the cd enjoyable. If you are looking for better video, the live version of SF Sorrow is superior, though I will never understand their fascination with Arthur Brown."
