The Sorrows - Take a Heart

Doesn't this sound amazingly contemporary?

The Sorrows released their first album, Take a Heart, in 1965 on the Piccadilly Records label which was a subsidiary of Pye Records. The Sorrows were at the time the hardest, most aggressive and contemporary R&B band of that time, although later this brand of music was eventually termed "Freakbeat". One of the most overlooked bands of the British Invasion, the Sorrows offered a tough brand of R&B-infused rock that recalled The Pretty Things (though not as R&B-oriented) and The Kinks (though not as pop-oriented)
