AllMusic Review by

Before the Pretty Things began dabbling with psychedelia in the late '60s, they were primarily a R&B-influenced rock band. The double-disc, 34-track The Rhythm & Blues Years collection compiles the work from that early era in the band's history. Featured songs include the group's biggest hit from the time, "Don't Bring Me Down," along with less-remembered songs like "Honey, I Need," "Judgement Day," "The Moon Is Rising," "I'm Gonna Find Me Substitute," "13 Chester Street," "Oh Baby Doll," "Get a Buzz," and many more. Overall, this is a great one-stop collection for anyone interested in the group's more-anchored and less-heady work.
