"Pretty Suzanne" is a single by Monks released over 40 years after it was recorded. The B-side is "Monk Time".

Song history[edit]

The Song originated as a "time consumer" instrumental called "Paradox" composed by Eddie Shaw and Dave Day. The Monks' managers took notice and pushed them to take to a harder direction. "Pretty Suzanne" was first recorded in 1965 as a demo. This early 1966 recording was recorded at Tonstudio Pfanz near Hamburg. Martin Christoph of Red Lounge Records discovered a single sided acetate of the 1966 recording in 2007, and it later was released as a bonus track on the 2009 Light in the Attic reissue of Black Monk Time and as a single released by Red Lounge Records.
