Parachute, released in 1970, is the fifth studio album by the English rock band The Pretty Things, following S.F. Sorrow and preceding Freeway Madness. It is their first album without guitarist Dick Taylor.
Reviews at the time of release were very positive, with Billboard calling it "another top-flight album" for the band. In 1975, Rolling Stone critic Steve Turner even wrote that it had been "a Rolling Stone 'album of the year'," though in fact Parachute did not place among the magazine's Albums of the Year for 1970 or 1971, and indeed was not mentioned in Rolling Stone until Stephen Holden called it an "obscure underground classic" in his review of Freeway Madness.
The musicians involved were Phil May, Wally Waller, John Povey, Vic Unitt, Skip Alan.
The record was later packaged together with S.F. Sorrow as a double LP titled Real Pretty. In Canada, this album was on Motown Records.
Snapper Records released a 40th anniversary double CD in September 2010 which included acoustic reworkings of various tracks recorded in May 2010 by Wally Waller and Phil May.
