Product Description

Review

...It's a chastening read that takes one from the exuberent euphoria of the late '60s, through the dark days of drug dependency and reclusion, to the brief resurgence of hope that presaged his eventual succumbing to leukaemia. At every turn, for all Lee's canny grasp of some music-industry matters - he was one of the first songwriters to insist on retention of his publishing rights - it reads like a "how not to succeed" guide to the music business.
--Word magazine, July 2010

Format: Paperback
At last - a biography that does full justice to Arthur Lee and the Love Band. This is an extremely well-written book, and John Einarson has made every effort to chronicle the Arthur Lee and Love story as accurately as possible. Prior to this, the main source of information for Love fans has been David Housden's fanzine/labour of love, "The Castle". In Einarson's book, most of the key people associated with Love are interviewed, including Johnny Echols, Michael Stuart, Snoopy Pfisterer, Jac Holzman, Mike Randle, and Diane Lee. Where differences of opinion occur, Einarson lets each have their say. The book includes substantial italicised quotes from Arthur Lee's previously unpublished autobiographical writings, and Einarson has carefully structured his work to cover the whole of Arthur's career. The first part of the book is a worthy companion to Chris Hall and Mike Kerry's excellent movie "Love Story". The centre of the book focuses on the making of "Forever Changes", and this section is particularly illuminating with fine contributions by key figures such as musical arranger, David Angel. The rest of the book brings much new information to light. The shooting incident which led to Arthur's jail-term is given full coverage, though (possibly out of respect to all concerned) little is said of Arthur's previous convictions. Arthur was clearly a Pisces, whose fish were swimming in opposite directions, and the multifaceted aspects of his nature are considered - his unpredictable and self-defeating behaviour, his drug use, and also his intelligence, kindness, spirituality and genius. I can personally testify to the accuracy of the coverage of the story between 2002 and 2005, as I was close to the Love world during this time. The end of Einarson's book is very moving, and brought tears to my eyes. The book has a good type-face and is well-illustrated (334 pages,including a brief index).

Format: Paperback
This book really gives the reader what it must have felt to be Arthur Lee.
He was not a saint but he also had some nice qualities as a human being and musician.
I really enjoyed the book and discovered a lot of things about the band Love and how any music this good could be created under the conditions that existed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A few years ago the DVD LOVE STORY was released and this book is an essential read for LOVE fans to accompany that film. Arthur's story is funny, tragic, ego-driven which resulted in perhaps 2-3 records that are timeless. This book will enlighten and annoy at the time - wasted talent drugs it's all there - Arthur Lee was never normal or free.
