Alyson over at What's It All About? recently featured the 60's American psychedelic band Love zoning in on Forever Changes and the song Alone Again Or.
I commented that I have only featured them once before and that was around 5 years ago in the very early days of CCM. Therefore they are probably well overdue another spin.
Their first three albums are on the shelves albeit Da Capo is a burn. We shall feature them in chronological order.
The first album Love from 1966 has touches of psychedelia but also its fair share of folk and garage numbers. I picked up the 2001 issue in a charity shop with all the songs in both mono and stereo.We will stick with mono today.
The second album Da Capo is also from 1966 but by them the drugs had well and truly kicked in. You want proof? The entire second side of the album is a 19 minute jam called Revelation.
1967 saw the release of what ultimately came to be seen as their masterpiece Forever Changes. It failed to achieve commercial success at the time but regularly appears in the higher echelons in lists of the Greatest Albums of all time.
It certainly won't be another 5 years before they feature again.
