The 3 O’Clock Loves Pretty Things

Michael Quercio of Paisley Underground heroes the 3 O’Clock told us about his love for a “S.F. Sorrow.”


Michael Quercio: My favorite LP.

It’s rock & roll at its zenith.

The songwriting is beyond compare.

The musicianship does the same.

Lead singer Phil May’s vocals are legendary enough but on this LP they really blow you away.

The first Rock Opera, it precedes The Who’s Tommy by a year and was a big influence on it.
