5.0 out of 5 stars It must be Love... February 14, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This cd is truly a measure of how big a Love fan you are... 6 of the 7 tracks from _Da Capo_ appear on the excellent _Love Story_ anthology, so if you're buying this for "Revelation", I think the word "fanatic" can safely be applied to you (grin).
Personally, I think the seven-person lineup heard here was Love's best. Side one is perhaps the best 17 minutes of music the group ever made. The arrival of Tijay Cantrelli (woodwinds) and Michael Stuart (drums) really expanded their sound and raised the level of musicianship. Nowhere is this more eveident than on "Revelation", that sprawling reminder of a bygone era. The song is too long and never really goes anywhere, but Stuart's drumming and Cantrelli's saxophone solo are definitely worth listening for (John Echolls complains loudly in the liner notes that Paul Rothschild ruined the song by moving sections of it around, but, really, it's hard to imagine it having turned out too much differently).
As always, Rhino's packaging and sound are excellent. I thought hearing the remastered stereo mix would prove them wrong for having used the mono one on _Love Story_, but... they were right, the mono does sound better (except "Revelation").

5.0 out of 5 stars When I read MusicFan's review I had to laugh... October 2, 2009
By robort
Format:Audio CD
When I read MusicFan's review I had to laugh... His opinion of each track on "DaCapo" was favorable, except "Revelation." I had to laugh because that sounded so familiar to me.
I purchased the LP in the sixties when it came out. I liked all the cuts until the screaming part of the "Revelation" track came up. I yanked it off the turntable and never played that side again (it's a long track which comprised the entirety of side 2), until... several years later, one evening, a conglomeration of friends were over and we had a stack of records qued. Candles were lit and everone "was feeling no pain" so to speak, eventually "Revelation" came on (someone had flipped the records such that the wrong side of that record was up). I didn't recognize it and wondered "is that one of my mine?"
Long story shorter, we were all totally mesmerized - I came to understand and enjoy it - and I have loved it ever since. Kinda like skydiving, once you come to like it...
People who know about "Love" usually agree, their music was amazingly original and far ahead of it's time.
DA CAPO by Love is a great experience. I wouldn't be without it, especially Revelation!

Post Script: First time I heard LedZeppelin tracks: "didn't like all the screaming" and stashed the album away (get it? the same thing happened!). Later, needless to say I experienced a complete reversal and they became my favorite group for years, especially that first album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophmore LOVE is NOT second Best! August 13, 2006
Format:Audio CD
After the excellent, self-titled debut, it was hard to imagine that Arthur Lee and LOVE could top their pro-punkish selves on their second effort. While "Da Capo" is not as hard-edged and raw as "Love" was, it still packs plenty of punch.

This album is worth buying just for the over-the-top rampage of "7 And 7 Is." This track alone is so far ahead of its time (an influential to boot) it became a true blueprint for what the punks of the 70's were trying to build on. The Sex Pistols, Ramones, Television and Clash all owed a lot of their material and sound to this song and this band. (Their have been many excellent covers of this song; the best being from Alice Cooper on 1981's "Special Forces.")

"Stephanie Knows Who," "Orange Skies," "The Castle," and "She Comes In Colors" are all excellent and (individually and collectively) can hold their own against anything in the bands catalog. "Revelation," which took up the entire second side of the original album, has often been critisized as being bloated, unessissary, and non-essential. However, the more you hear it the more it shows its merit. It may very well be the weakest track, but it is worthwhile as the Arthur and company try to spread their creative wings a bit and get away from the three-minute sing format.

Love would next go on to create their masterpiece, "Forever Changes." But, "Da Capo" was an essential second step in the creative process for this top shelf band of the psychedelic era. Love far outdistanced most of their contemporaries in almost every way. "Da Capo" is proof positive of that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arthur Lee's first journey through brilliance December 26, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Love's first album had its moments but was possibly too much of a muchness with some of the folk rock numbers being too similar among themselves."Da Capo's"diversity is its winning point with each song having a distinctive identity. That said,only"Revelation",a 19 minute jam,is a half realized concept,for the remaining 6 tracks all reach glorious heights.
STEPHANIE KNOWS WHO-Deft time changes power this rocker.Possibly the closest to their first album,though more embelished than any track on their rough edged debut.
ORANGE SKIES-A jazzy,laid back melody showcasing Arthur Lee's dexterity.Moreover it presents us with the inspired image"Orange Skies,carnivals and cotton candy and you".
QUE VIDA!-This spanish flavored tune is another standout.The guitar riff driving this song is as beautiful as it is superb.
7&7IS-Proto Punk,a relentless 2 minute assault with werdifying guitars and a bass with an odd revving vibe as backdrop to Arthur's sped up vocals.It turned out to be Love's only hit single.The remaster's liner notes cleared up at last the meaning of the decades long mystery"My dad's is in the fireplace and my dog lies hypnotized"(it turned out to be quite simple,you'll see when you read it)
THE CASTLE-75% of this song is instrumental but since the interplay between the guitar,the bass and the harpsichord is so close to perfection it would be unfair to ask for more.
SHE COMES IN COLOURS-One of Love's top compositions and the album's high water-mark.From the emotionladen vocals to the strangely adequate flute nothing here descends below excellence.
REVELATION-Love decided to recreate on an album their onstage gimmick in which every element of the band had his moment in the spotlight.
