Nothing Can Hurt Me ~ Big Star
Nothing Can Hurt Me ~ Big Star
5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, March 4 2014
"Nothing Can Hurt Me" is the music soundtrack for the documentary of the same title.

The Pretty Things' 1968 album "S.F. Sorrow" did not cause much attention when it was originally released.

The band had already shown, with their previous album "Emotions", that they wanted to explore new grounds, and that they felt that the r&b concept was too limited for them.

"Emotions" showed that the band possesed excellent songwriters in Wally Allen, Phil May and Dick Taylor. Unfortunately the production of that album was not too successful; at least at the time it was considered as some kind of a "disaster".

This is not the case with the follow-up album "S.F. Sorrow". The sound is great and Norman Smith's production captured the new psychedelic sounds… Read more
