Review by Windhawk
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
4 stars Fruits de Mer Records is a small label that specializes on releasing limited edition vinyl productions, mostly consisting of cover versions of classic tracks from way back then. "Sorrow's Children" from 2012 is one of their more ambitious undertakings: an album featuring new versions of The Pretty Things classic rock opera "S. F. Sorrow" from 1968, interpreted by 13 different contemporary artists.

Albums consisting of cover material will always be productions somewhat contested I guess. Personally I have a so-so relation to many such exploits, but have so far been rather impressed by the efforts of the enthusiast label Fruits de Mer in that niche market. As usual for a production released by it, this is recommended material, if you can get hold of it. They do tend to sell out their releases rather quickly, in extreme cases on pre-orders alone. But this one is clearly worth a check with the label for the vinyl enthusiast who would love adding this one to their collection.
