Pick up any of the band's first three albums - Love, da Capo or Forever Changes and you will find a rich selection of quality songs. How would I classify them? Hmmmm, that's difficult. Slightly Byrds-ish, slightly Doors-ish, slightly Beefheart-ish, slightly Flying Burritos-ish, slightly folk-rockish with a latin twist... Really, though, they created their own distinctive sound... Love are unique - thanks in large part to Lee's distinctive voice, lyrics and song arrangements. Because of this you may not find them an instant 'hit', but if you do fall for their sound, I think you'll find them a life-long love.
There are some who reckon this album sounds Byrdish.. well...yeh.. jangling guitars were quite common in '66, and no disrespect to any other band, but please listen to the power, force and melody in that bass! (What a loss; poor Ken Frossi another casualty). Then there was the amazing range of Arthur Lee's voice he could handle with great skill any style with, snarlin', shoutin', plaintive or just plain songster. And let's hear it for lead guitar John Echols! The man was underrated in his day, I still find his breaks spell binding.
This album is worth it for so many reasons, 1st Love Album, remarkable LA music, Good Garage, and of course Timeless in its appeal.
On this album are some of their greatest material,including the truly brilliant Little Red Book. Best heard through headphones, with the volume as high as you can bear it, this is a rock lover's taste of heaven.
"Signed D.C." is not an alternate take - it's the familiar take, stripped down to Arthur Lee's guitar and vocal - presumably the "seed" tracks for the rest of the recording (check out the near-heavy-metal version on the "Out There" album for an angst-ridden alternative!). "Number 14" is a country-flavoured throwaway number that I doubt I'll learn to love.
The booklet is more informative, this time around, with contributions from Johnny Echols (it was worth the price of the CD, just to find out that some tracks were done on a Gibson doubleneck with a mandolin neck on the top - that explains away a lot of the "guitar" solos). BECAUSE of the re-issue, my old CD is unsaleable - so, along with my old "Forever Changes" and all my "Polydor" Hendrix, it's gone to my daughters.

Listened too loves albums starting forever changes back. Who cares sure not me, great collection of songs love themPublished 3 months ago by ahumanonearth.
Invariably spoken of (if at all) as a stepping stone towards Forever Changes, this is actually a classic in its own right.Published on 5 Feb. 2014 by Elvis Patterson
This is my favourite Love album, often overlooked in favour of the critically acclaimed "Forever Changes". Read morePublished on 11 Feb. 2005 by Mr. M. R. Pountney
