Crazy daze at Lighting Wizard Studios. I would arrive there in Hornsey after a Pretty
Things gig and start experimenting with sounds and songs. Julian Briggs (bass guitar)
and I would roll up some temple balls to smoke and then play. The studio was decked
out in Afghan rugs on the floor/walls and was exceedingly comfortable. When I left
The Pretty Things I moved into the flat upstairs with my girlfriend Silver and Steve
Took, until eventually moving to Notting Hill Gate." -John "Twink" Alder, 2017.
Recorded in 1969/1970 except tracks 4, 12, and 13.
TP50    2       THE FAIRIES : GET YOURSELF HOME: THE EARLY YEARS        CD      10.2017

The Fairies were a British rhythm and blues band led by drummer John 'Twink' Alder,
who recorded three singles between 1964 and 1965. The Fairies split at some date
before 1967, Twink having already departed and joined London band The In-Crowd in
August 1966. This band evolved into Tomorrow, and from there Twink joined the Pretty
Things and the Pink Fairies before launching a solo career.

16 live tracks of Tomorrow in their prime! Presented in chronological order, this

all-nighter 'Christmas On Earth' where they played alongside Jimi Hendrix, The Who,
Syd Barrett's Pink Floyd and more! This set is bookended by Tomorrow's 1967 BBC
appearance on the first episode of John Peel's 'Top Gear', and their hard-to-find
1968 appearance on the same show.
