It's so disappointing that S.F. Sorrow is destined to remain in obscurity. S.F. Sorrow was a commercial failure when it came out in 1968, and it received mixed to negative reviews on its original release. Even in modern times, S.F. Sorrow is overlooked in comparison to The Who & The Beatles, and Allmusic implied that S.F. Sorrow was a flawed effort. S.F. Sorrow deserves to get more recognition.

Music geeks don't give a flying toot what Allmusic says. Everybody I know loves SF Sorrow, and most of those people were born long after the album came out.

Bioniking

But those who know of it, know it's great. Id put it in the top 10 psychedelia albums. It's not a perfect album, but it's damn good.

posstockhoarder

To his credit, Pete Townsend gave them full due. These poor guys, PT, got put on Motown in the USA and got trashed for ripping off TOMMY. Meanwhile, Pete said that the PT gave HIM the idea. Talk about bad karma.

juicebeads

is it me..or did all the best music come from the late 60's?

Max Merry

The unfortunate thing about the album was its being released towards the end of 1968, six months or more after its recording began. Depending on what source material you read, the band were apparently working on it at Abbey Road around about the time the Beatles were finishing off Sgt Pepper and Pink Floyd were about to release Piper At The Gates Of Dawn. However, some documentation indicates that most of it was being recorded early in 1968. Whatever the case, it really should have been issued much earlier in 1968 as its psychedelic qualities were already seen as being somewhat passe. However, its cult status hasn't diminished and the album is, arguably, more popular than it was at the time of its original release. Regardless of its historical status, this track is one of the all-time GREAT opening cuts on ANY album!

Max Merry yep the Pretties career suffered from bad management.

stan edwards

LOVE THIS SONG, CLASSIC PSYCH LP, ; I GOT WHEN CAME OUT , STANDS RIGHT UP THERE WITH THE FINEST; PRETTIES, AN ALL TIME FAVES; PSYCH MASTERPIECE

Garnet Newton-Wade

A bit like Spirit's 12 Dreams of Dr Zadonicus, a little known classic that holds up surprisingly well today.

Just discovered this album after a recent purchase on CD, still sounds amazing, in general The Pretty Things were an underrated band, even in their early days as an R and B band they seemed to play 2nd fiddle toThe Rolling Stones.S.F. Sorrow is a masterpiece and one of the 60s best secrets.
