The Pretty Things were innovators in the ‘60s and ‘70s and in 1968 they unleashed their classic and essential rock opera and psychedelic masterpiece, S.F. Sorrow. This was well in advance of The Who having such fanciful ideas with Tommy. Think of it as standing shoulder-to-shoulder with The Beatles’ Sgt Pepper or Pink Floyd’s Piper At The Gates Of Dawn.

Without a doubt one of the greatest rock records of all time. It still sounds as fresh as the day it was recorded. It's a shame the Pretty Things' S.F. Sorrow never had the commercial impact of its Abbey Road contemporaries', Piper at the Gates of Dawn and Sgt. Pepper. Though sales were modest, the album spawned an interest in conceptual music and greatly influenced bands like The Who, CA Quintet and yes, Pink Floyd. And when you listen to the music you can see why, it's a truly legendary album.
