The Pretty Things- "Rainin' in My Heart" (1966) Live TV Appearance

Blues enthusiasts much like the early Rolling Stones (in fact, guitarist Dick Taylor had played bass in an early version of that iconic band), The Pretty Things tended to be more dark, scruffy and dangerous than their peers and in doing so, were arguably one of the more original bands of the "British Invasion." Judging from lead-singer Phil May's appearance and stage persona in this clip, I think Jim Morrison might have caught "The Pretties" on TV once or twice.
