music — USA — 1966

"Love", "Love", "Love". "Love" is all you need. "Love" live, "Love" live. Life is "Love" and "Love" is live. "Love" me do. There`s lots of songs that one could interpret as praising this band from California, yet there ain`t much to praise it all about. I have no disbelief that the leader of this band - Arthur Lee - did have some sort of a musicial vision, yet at least this record seems to be rather disturbing to me. Lee`s voice totally turns me off, some cool guitar riffs are buried among piles of garbage and there are only a few memorable songs on this record that aren`t completely ruined by the singer`s performance. Why Love is considered to be one of the greatest "Lost" bands of the sixties, is beyond my understanding.
