The Sorrows - Pink Purple Yellow and Red

The Sorrows - Pink Purple Yellow & Red (1967)
Never heard this tune until yesterday. I know next to nothing about The Sorrows except they were from Coventry. This tune is a ripper. That bassline! Those drums. A bit of menacing British beat if not quite unhinged freakbeat. In the original definition of the term freakbeat Phil Smee, who coined the term, said it had to be "touched by the hand of mayhem" so it's not quite chaotic enough but ya know whatever i's still freakbeat innit. That term has come to encompass British Beat, RnB, Mod, Psych etc.

The Sorrows - Take A Heart (1965)
This is the one song by The Sorrows I previously knew because it was on a compilation from 21 years ago Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts From The British Empire & Beyond
