  • Infinitely better than Sgt. Pepper's. Suck on that Bee Gees.
  • One of the best psychedelic albums of all time simple as that, vocal melodies coming out of their arse.
  • Featured on SaltyKnuckles ~ Oldies №88 - http://oldies.saltyknuckles.net/2014-31/
  • One of the first rock [tag]concept album[/tag]s, S.F. Sorrow was based on a short story by singer-guitarist Phil May. The album is structured as a song cycle, telling the story of the main character, Sebastian F. Sorrow, from birth through love, war, tragedy, madness, and the disillusionment of old age. >> Recording began at Abbey Road Studios in November 1967 with work on “Bracelets of Fingers.” Two tracks that had been earmarked for the album, “Talking About the Good Times” and “Walking Through My Dreams,” were instead released as a single in February 1968. In March 1968, drummer Skip Alan suddenly quit the band thanks to a whirlwind romance, and Twink (born John Charles Alder), whose band Tomorrow had recently split up, took his place. >> Working with noted EMI staff producer Norman “Hurricane” Smith and house engineer Peter Mew, the group experimented with the latest sound technology, often employing gadgets and techniques devised on the spot by Abbey Road’s technicians.
  • Wonderful album, the double CD reissue has 4 extra tracks (singles and b-sides) and a live recording of SF Sorrow from a few years ago narrated by Arthur Brown. Essential listening
