Fully expanded reissue of Love brilliance culled from band's Elektra period
And more again? Australia’s Raven imprint picks up the Love gauntlet with a fairly complete selection of their so-called best moments, although the set is somewhat superseded by recent remastered originals. Still, following a period of reappraisal for all things Arthur Lee, this well-packaged set won’t disappoint. But then it’d be hard to go wrong with “My Little Red Book”, “A Message To Pretty”, a clutch of tracks from the immortal 1967 LP Forever Changes and a welcome interview with the Californian maestro himself, discussing the warped and wonderful origins of the band who launched Jac Holzman’s psych-rock empire. Everyone needs a little Love in their lives. This sets the scene.
