Product Description

[ERA : 60s / Garage, Freakbeat, Pop ]
Best known for their 1965 hit, the brooding garage pop masterpiece 'Take A Heart', Coventry band The Sorrows cut a clutch of similarly vital 45s and the ™Take A Heartš album before frontman Don Fardon left in 1966.While Fardon went on to a solo career, The Sorrows regrouped and moved to Italy, where they had a couple of minor hit singles and released the psych-rock album ™Old Songs, New Songsš before breaking up at the end of the decade.While those two distinct phases of the band have been individually anthologised before, Pink Purple Yellow And Red represents the first time that they have been assembled under one roof, and as such stands as the definitive document of The Sorrows' fascinating career.In addition to those pivotal mid-Sixties singles, the package includes the entire ™Take A Heartš album in both mono and stereo, the ™Old Songs, New Songsš LP and an earlier acetate-only demo album that was scrapped when two members of the band left.The set also features their collaborations with soundtrack maestro Ennio Morricone, their title song to the Italian spy movie Ypotron, a superb acetate-only early 1968 single, spin-off singles by The Eggy and Renegade, a 1980 live show from the reformed band and, in a thrilling new archival find, four previously unissued 1964 recordings with legendary producer Joe Meek.Housed in a clamshell box, and including a lavish booklet containing many rare photos and a detailed essay on the band's activities, the 4-CD set Pink Purple Yellow And Red is an essential purchase for anyone with more than a passing interest in Sixties British pop.
