    For over 50 years, The Pretty Things have proudly, unapologetically and righteously scorched their own, unique trail through contemporary music. A half-century (plus) of the raunchiest white-boy rhythm and blues, of punch-ups, dazzling highs and epic struggles, of innovation and exultation, lauded by their peers, vilified by authority, a crucial influence on successive generations of acts, The Pretty Things make it to the mid twenty teens with mojo intact and edge unblunted.

    The epochal British rock 'n' roll band is being celebrated with the Bouquets From a Cloudy Sky box set that is out February 23 in the UK and is limited to just 2,000 copies.

    Here's the table of contents:

    ELEVEN STUDIO ALBUMS ON CD - housed in gatefold digi-sleeves, including FORTY-TWO bonus tracks

    TWO BONUS CDs with FORTY-FIVE previously unreleased demos, alternate versions, live recordings and outtakes

    TWO DVDs with new documentary

    10-INCH VINYL REPLICA 'ACETATE,' featuring Defecting Grey full-length demo and Turn My Head (studio version), plus two previously unreleased tracks

    LAVISHLY ILLUSTRATED 100-PAGE HARDBACK BOOK, featuring a comprehensive band history penned by Mike Stax (editor of Ugly Things magazine), with rare photos and memorabilia

    FAMILY TREE & TESTIMONIAL POSTERS - tracing the band from Little Boy Blue & The Blue Boys and The Rolling Stones to the present day, and featuring hand-written messages from Pretty Things past and present
