THE SORROWS - LET ME IN



THE SORROWS - 'Let Me In'/'How Love Used To Be' (Piccadilly 7N35336) August 1966

The Sorrows were one of the toughest sounding bands to emerge from the mid 60s R'N'B scene in England. Far more gritty than the more popular groups on the scene and of course Don Fardon was a hugely talented vocalist. Just perfect for the supercharged Sorrows mod sound.

Miki Dallon's 'Let Me In' is a powerful song with crunching guitar, powerful vocals and a pulsating beat or could that be freakbeat? Not surprisingly, it was far too snotty for the charts and it sank into oblivion.

The flip 'How It Used To Be' is a moody masterpiece and is the perfect come down after the thundering raunch of 'Let Me In'. This is a classic two sided 45 in every sense.

  1. The Sorrows were one of the few groups that I'd read about in the English pop magazines, FABulous and Rave, that weren't played on the radio here. Any chance you'd consider posting some FABulous covers from late 1963-66 if you have some in your collection? I'd be thrilled to see some of them again. Thanks EXPO67. Marie

  2. MM - I don't really collect old 60s mags but I've got some. I have a great annual from 1969 called Alphabeat which contains many colour pics of obscure English psych groups.
    I'll be posting pics from this annual when the time arises.
