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.
