iTunes Editors’ Notes

Love's 1966 eponymous debut may pale in creative comparison to their 1967 cult classic, the highly influential Forever Changes, but this one rocks much harder than what many critics and musicians hail as the band's magnum opus. With Love, the Los Angeles outfit staked out a darker piece of Sunset Strip's exploding psychedelic rock scene. The sinister stomp of "My Little Red Book" (originally penned by Burt Bacharach and Hal David) unleashed the band — as well as their complex and enigmatic frontman Arthur Lee — on an unsuspecting world of teenagers who may have been expecting something akin to the pacific folk rock of Love's contemporaries, The Byrds. Though there are subtle hints of Byrdsy influence on songs like the semi-sloppy garage rock of "Can't Explain" with its tambourine jingle and 12-string jangle, Lee preferred to sing about the fear of death and soured relationships rather than quote Pete Seger's interpretation of the third chapter from Ecclesiastes. Love also put a proto punk spin on their version of "Hey Joe," and the moody intricacies of "Signed D.C." along with the psychedelic song craft of "Mushroom Clouds" hinted at what Lee and Love were later capable of on Forever Changes.

Customer Reviews

What a great song- No Matter What You Do

I didn't buy this album and I haven't heard too much of Love but there's one song on here that is extremely underated that many people need to know about. I'm sure not too many people will open this page up and look at these reviews but you all need to buy and listen to NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO. I heard this song on the way to work one morning on satelite radio and remembered the name and band. I bought it and I can't stop listening to it. What a great song. I really don't understand why this wasn't a hit or on another one of their albums and is just a bonus track.

Say what???

What a militant attitude. Love should be kept underground? People should discover them on your terms? You sound a bit stalker'ish to me. I say: WORLDWIDE DOMINATION BY LOVE!

Excellent

I never tire of their music. Must have stuff here!

Biography

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...
