Mammal’s Merry Memories: Juicy Lucy – Pretty Woman (1970)

There seems to be a growing flood of retro-rock albums recently, with new bands doing the old classic, blues and psychedelic rock in a 21st-century style. Now bear in mind that I’m a retro-Mammal, a throwback to about the Miocene Era that began approximately 23 million years ago. I was there in the age of throwing rocks and fighting off sabre-tooths when bands started playing that classic stuff. I not only enjoy lots of the modern retro-music, I love much of its grandparent music too.

Juicy Lucy was a British-American blues rock band that started in 1969. Their album I like the most is Lie Back And Enjoy It, which included this song. If you’re expecting a cover of the Roy Orbison “Pretty Woman”, this ain’t it.

I've made it to Mammal. I still hope to be classified as Human one day. Meanwhile I have evolved enough to recognise different types of music as well as the shrieks of certain vervet monkeys who are known for their scurrilous behaviour in the proximity of unguarded bananas.
