SF Sorrow

LP (Item 370215) Rare Earth, 1968 — Condition: New Copy
(reissue)
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


4.80 10

A late 60s masterpiece from The Pretty Things – beautifully baroque west coast psych pop, done in a style that links together the headier LA sound of Love with some of the more concept-driven work of the UK scene at the time! There's an undeniable power in the record – an energy that was years ahead of its time, and which has led to the album's rediscovery by a host of new generations. At some points, the instrumentation is simple guitar-based rock – but at others, it's topped off by just the right use of strings, larger orchestrations, and bits borrowed from Indian music! Vocals are bitingly delivered, but never cliched – and titles include "Old Man Going", "Loneliest Person", "SF Sorrow Is Born", "She Says Good Morning", "Death", and "Baron Saturday".  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Dead Man
Hookah/Numero, 1970. New Copy (reissue)
A rare slab of underground hard rock from Josefus – circa 1970, and a good half decade ahead of its time! It's got a walloping, fuzz-drenched blue rock swagger you might expect from subterranean TX rockers at the time – but the Zeppelin-y vocals, and overall dark and sludgy Sabbath-y ...
