Editorial Reviews

Arthur Lee marked his departure from Elektra by jettisoning his old band line-up and putting out the only double-album in the Love discography. 'Out Here' is a sprawling, uneven work whose high points rank with anything from their Elektra discography, and whose low points descend to a level dependent upon your tolerance for blues-rock jams circa 1969! It's Love louder than you've ever heard them before, with the characteristic Arthur Lee whimsy intact (who else would come up with a song title like 'Love Is More Than Words' or 'Better Late Than Never')? Also includes a new, heavier version of the classic 'Signed D.C.' from their debut album.

this is a compilation of tracks from love's albums for blue thumb records out here and false start. while a quibble could be made over some of the tracks, i believe that the post forever changes band is quite good in its own right. sometimes its written as if the band became lousy or mediocre after forever changes and it is simply not true. the later stuff is not as good as the earlier stuff but dont ignore the later band, for one thing it was a lot harder and louder. for example, i think the version of signed d.c. on out here is actually better than the one on their debut album. of the two albums compiled here , both are patchy and out here is the better of the two, if you're not a huge fan of love like i am you probably won't want to hear all their stuff so i'd suggest comes in colors if you don't think you need their excellent 2 cd set love story . if you are , and can't find out here and false start, i'd suggest getting this compilation. love were one of america's greatest bands of the era in my opinion along with the velvet underground and moby grape.

Forget what you may have heard. While far from being perfect or excellent, "Out Here" is a very good record.
No, it's not the same "Love" that brought you the debut album, "Da Capo", or "Forever Changes." But Arthur Lee never seemed to be trying to trick anyone into believing that it was the same band: in the song "Doggone", Lee sings "Once I had a singin' group/Singin' group done gone/Now I got another group/Didn't take too long."
The point is that, while this album is not the same as the classic albums Love released on Elektra and does not have the same feel as those particular albums, it is a good record in its own right. "I'll Pray for You", "Listen to My Song", "I Still Wonder", "Run to the Top", and "You Are Something" alone make it worth the purchase price.

Not being from LA, I did not have the opportunity to hear the music of the great band Love, until late 69. That was when, I found the double LP: "Out Here" in a cut-out bin. With it's painted blue man, raparound cover all for a whopping 99 cents. I had never heard a note of this music, but this sure looked interesting. Was this a Pink Floyd knockoff? An early edition of Bloodrock? Well, I took my 99 cent gamble and bought this strange record.

"Out Here" was really different from what I was used to and that is due to Arthur Lee, or as he wanted to be called at the time: "Arthurlee." Lee, a veteran of the LA music scene since 1964, formed the first version of Love in 1965, with Bryan "Snoopy" MacLean. By 1969, the band had still not broken through with a hit single or bestselling album release, so, outside of Los Angeles, they were not well known.

Many critics, have labeled, Love's short time with Blue Thumb records as the band's: "Heavy Metal" period. One listen to this CD, and you know that this is not the case..."Heavy Metal," this ain't! "Stand Out" is flat-out rock, "I Still Wonder" is CSN meeting The Allman Brothers, "Listen to my song" goes into Tiny Tim territory with Arthur's falsetto & whistling. The great: "Everlasting First" features Jimi Hendrix, it was born out of a much longer jam session {featured on many bootlegs, the jam is over 10 minutes in length} but, this song is three minutes long, and pales to what goes on during the original session.

Some of the tracks here sound unfinished and/or bad edits of something greater; "Love is Coming", "Listen to my Song", "Nice to Be", all fade out before they really get going. Two tracks featured on this disc are exended 'work-outs', the first is: "Doggone.

So, i thought it was about time i checked this out since it was the only Love cd i've never heard and i'm glad to report this is nowhere near as bad as a lot of people make out. In fact, it's actually pretty great if not a little flawed.

As you no doubt know this is a collection of Love's two post-Elektra albums on the Blue Thumb label "out here" and some of the best songs from their finale "false start". Like the previous "four sail" album this is the more blues-rock Love but with some throwbacks to the first 3 albums. Indeed, many of these songs were actually recorded during the "four sail" sessions but weren't used until they'd gotten out of their Elektra contract. When "out here" and "false start" were released they both were reviled by Love fans and flopped commercially barely breaking into the billboard top 200 and signalled the end of the band.

Which is a shame because there are some real gems on here. "I still wonder" is more complex return to the sound of the first album; The electric version of "signed d.c" is far less haunting than the acoustic original but still just as effective; "Love is coming", "stand out", "the first everlasting" (featuring Hendrix!) and "gimi a little break" continue the melodic wah-wah guitar-ed out rock of "four sail"; "nice 2 be" is a funky little song that would've sounded at home on "da capo", ditto the superb "willow willow" and "listen to my song" is pure acoustic THAT album era Love sans the orchestra.

And then there's the two most interesting songs on the album. The 12 minute "doggone" is an ode to Arthur's beloved dog who'd gone missing, his former girlfriend and the previous incarnation of Love that starts out as good and then degenerates into a horrific 9 minute drum solo that's absolutely unlistenable.
