Get Close to The Pretenders
Posted:Thursday, 02/07/2013 at 04:02am by Greg Easterling
We featured The Pretenders today with music from their fourth full length album, Get Close, released in 1986.

This album was made by the third lineup of the band plus a relatively large number of session players. Founder and longtime lead singer/songwriter Chrissie Hynde kept The Pretenders together with guitarist Robbie McIntosh the lone holdover from the Learning To Crawl lineup. While the band had lost some of that raw energy from the early days, there were still plenty of great songs coming from Chrissie's pen and guitar. "My Baby", "Don't Get Me Wrong" and "Hymn For Her" were ample evidence of that. We listened to Side 2 this time.
