Editors’ Notes

One of the psychedelic era’s most pleasing albums, 1968’s Forever Changes represents the apex of the mercurial Los Angeles group’s short but influential career. Leader Arthur Lee channels an otherworldly authority for the complex songcraft put forth, from the elliptical, delightfully weird lyrics to the unusual string and horn arrangements that compliment the group’s flexible folk-rock backbone. Guitarist Bryan MacLean contributes two of the album’s standouts (the often covered “Alone Again Or” and “Old Man”), while Lee lets loose a flood of wild imagery from the percolating drama of “A House is Not A Motel” to the gentle, loping-in-the-grass sway of “Andmoreagain” to the cathartic orchestral build of “You Set The Scene.” Rife with infighting and an inability to make an impact beyond the West Coast, Love soon dispersed and Lee went on to record several more albums as “Love” that were more solo projects never quite up to the same level. But then few albums are as mystically rewarding as one with “Bummer in the Summer,” “The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This” and “The Red Telephone” among their riddles.

Customer Reviews

If you respect rock and roll you have to have this record!

I came across LOVE by going to a benefit for Author Lee. Robert Plant was headliner and that is why I went. Not knowing anything about LOVE or Arthur Lee, I listened to Plant and other artist cover some of these songs. I was so intrigued by the music I couldn’t wait to hear the originals. So I bought Forever Changes on Itunes. WOW. It is one of the most beautiful orchestrations of rock and roll music that I have ever heard. The honey like lyrics are mixed with a complexity of music so skilled and baeutiful it's genius. Anyone with a respect or desire for the classic american rock and roll roots will be blown away by this record and have a deeper respect and understanding of one of the greatest rock genius’s of our time, Arthur Lee.

Creative material at its best.

This album was way before its time and should be considered in the same breath as Pet Sounds and Sgt. Pepper's. What those albums lack Forever Changes adds as it is lyrically an amazing album.

Simply Timeless

This band was great almost 40 years ago, yet Love manages to sound as if they recorded now. To me, this is the true test of a great band.


Formed: 1965 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '00s

One of the best West Coast folk-rock/psychedelic bands, Love may have also been the first widely acclaimed cult/underground group. During their brief heyday — lasting all of three albums — they drew from Byrds-ish folk-rock, Stones-ish hard rock, blues, jazz, flamenco, and even light orchestral pop to create a heady stew of their own. They were also one of the first integrated rock groups, led by genius singer/songwriter Arthur Lee, one of the most idiosyncratic and enigmatic talents...
