5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Time, 26 Mar. 2010
This review is from: Soundtrack (Audio CD)
Full of ambitious ideas and good tunes, maybe a bit too amateur dramatics for some tastes, but an excellent album from an era when enthusiasm and and ideas could overcome limited conventional technique (see also Incredible String Band U). This sounds as good as I remember it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look, listen and learn - and enjoy, 21 July 2008
An excellent DVD. Runs for 1 hour 50 minutes, and has complete performances and explanations of ten songs:-
No Regrets, Rockport Sunday, River Song
Urge For Going, Circle Game
Panama Limited, Diamond Joe, Drop Down Mama
Mole's Moan
Child's Song
(plus a perfomance of YouTube "hit" Remember)

There's also a tab booklet.

The performances are enjoyable, the explanations and demonstrations clear and there is a bit of background information on each song. All in all an excellent DVD, and almost like having a personal concert from the great man himself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Out Here is not Out There, 14 Jun. 2008
This review is from: Out Here (Audio CD)
This album is by the second version of Love, with only Arthur Lee remaining from the "Forever Changes" version.

Apparently, the band recorded 27 songs over a period of about a year, and for contractual reasons Elektra had first choice. They took 10 songs and released them as "Four Sail" in 1969, with the remaining 17 being released as "Out Here" a few months later on the Blue Thumb / Harvest label. "Out Here" was a double album in vinyl days, and almost inevitably has a few throw-aways and meandering tracks (beware the drum solo!).

Although (in theory) all the best songs should have been on "Four Sail" there are still plenty of excellent songs on "Out Here" which Elektra somehow missed out on. However, on balance, I would advise starting with "Four Sail" before going on to this album.

Please note:- "Out There" was a compilation album featuring a selection of songs from two albums - 1969's "Out Here" and 1970's "False Start".
