Love: Love Songs – An Anthology of Arthur Lee’s Love 1966-1969

Album Review

Fine two-CD ‘best of’ from LA’s finest psych-folk gang.

Current documentary makers would probably choose San Francisco (Be Sure To Wear Flowers In Your Hair) as the go-to Summer Of Love soundtrack. But to a more discerning crowd, the lyrics of Los Angeles’ most spangled rock poet, Arthur Lee, most accurately sum up the era and its inevitable comedown when he sang: ‘Oh, the snot has caked against my pants/and turned into crystal’ on Live And Let Live.
