S.F. Sorrow è il quarto album in studio del gruppo rock inglese The Pretty Things, pubblicato nel 1968 per la Columbia Records.[4]

È considerata la prima opera rock britannica[5] ed uno dei primi concept album del rock ed è basato su una breve storia, scritta dal cantante Phil May, che viene a mano a mano svelata dalle canzoni che strutturano l'album. La narrazione ha come protagonista Sebastian F. Sorrow ed incomincia con la sua nascita, gli amori, la guerra, la tragedia, la follia e termina con la delusione della tarda età.
