The Sorrows - Take A Heart

The Sorrows hailed from Coventry, England and were fronted by Don Fardon. In 1965 they landed a recording contract with Picadilly Records and began releasing a number of very unique and cool records. Finding trouble distinguishing themselves from the other bands in the UK, The Sorrows relocated for a time to Italy. We feature today their third record, Take A Heart, released in the UK in August, 1965. The song was written by one Mickey Dallon.

As you can see from the scans, I also confess to having a record collecting problem. Yep, that's the UK version, as well as a rare US version and an even more rare, Mexican version of the record. All with the original company sleeves of course. It's off to Record Collector Anonymous for this Flip-Sider.

Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!


  1. At that time they had more sophisticated sound production than their contemporaries The Kinks, Pretty Things, Stones, Yardbirds, Downliners Sect... Viva Los Sorrows!!!

    1. I'll answer my own question. The flipside We Should Get Along Fine is a Don Fardon, Pip Whitcher (lead guitar, vocals) penned ballad with some intricate guitar runs, very interesting slowly-sung vocals in the verse and a somewhat tepid chorus section. Decent overall.

    2. It's pretty pedestrian if you ask me.

  3. Their massive monster acid psychotic freak stalker epic is the sublime, "Let Me In". Straight jackets and rubber rooms won't stop him. Maybe a little shock therapy?
