Biography

There are several artists that go by the name of Love:

1. An American psychedelic rock group formed in Los Angeles in 1965. They were led by singer, songwriter and guitarist Arthur Lee (March 7, 1945 - August 3, 2006) and the group’s second songwriter, guitarist Bryan MacLean (September 25, 1946 - December 25, 1998). One of the first racially diverse American pop bands, their music reflected a remarkable array of influences, combining elements of rock and roll, garage rock, folk, showtunes and psychedelia. Other members included John Echols, Johnny Fleckenstein, Don Conka, Alban Snoopy Pfisterer, Ken Forssi, Tjay Cantrelli, Michael Stuart, Jay Donnellan, Gary Rowles, Frank Fayad, and George Suranovich.

Love grew out of the Los Angeles garage band The Grass Roots, changing their name in 1965 to avoid confusion with the P.F. Sloan-managed band of the same name. The band lived communally in Bela Lugosi’s former LA residence The Castle, and the house forms the background to the cover of their first two album sleeves.

Love released their eponymous début album in July 1966. This was followed later the same month by the single “Seven and Seven Is/No. Fourteen”, neither side of which was included on the album, and which gave the band their only U.S. Billboard top 40 hit.

Love’s second album Da Capo was released in January 1967. The album is split between a more conventional first side, featuring 6 tracks (including Seven And Seven Is) and a second side featuring just one near twenty-minute track, Revelation.

    Forever Changes is like...too good. Extraordinary too good. Seems impossible to pull it off today.

    @HaHaHaYoureDead как и в случае с The Zombies, хочу сказать, что ажиотаж, как для таковой группы, вообще не существует. Не, ну действительно, о какой гипероценке может идти речь, если при термине "психоделический рок" люди в первую очередь сделают ассоциацию с The Doors или Pink Floyd? В добавок ко всему, Артур Ли, как музыкант, не особо-то и прославился в рядах рок-исполнителей. А вот насчет качества арт-рока - это действительно вопрос, т.к. в таковой мало углублялся.

    сейчас эта группа явно переоценена (как когда-то была недооценена), тем не менее ее творчество - светлое напоминание о том, что когда-то арт-рок не был мешанием помоев.

    Such a great band, how come I've discovered them just now? :)

    For a '60s band that only had a few records, 6 million is pretty respectable.

    Forever Changes has to be in the top 10 psychedelic albums ever recorded.
