It was originally issued on the A&M label and includes five bonus tracks of previously unreleased material: "Pencil In Hand" (an early version of "He Said, She Said"), "E-Z Rider" (a Jimi Hendrix song) and "Looking Glass Looking At Me" (an early version of "You Want Change For Your Re-Run") and "Everybody's Gotta Live" and "He Knows A Lot Of Good Women". The disc comes packaged in a slipcase with updated liner notes by David Wells. BGO.

4.0 out of 5 stars Arthur Lee's Hard Rocking Solo Bow June 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Rock criticism has generally been unkind to Arthur Lee's post-Forever Changes career trajectory. Convention wisdom held that he had lost his way in a drug-fueled haze, his last few albums brushed off as the by-products of a 60s-era burnout.

How wrong this simple analysis is. 1969's Four Sail, the follow up to Forever Changes, is a great album, IMHO, full of the full-tilt melodicism and soulfulness that graced the earlier albums. 1972's Vindicator -- Lee's first solo album -- is an extension of the same. Like some bastard child of Hendrix and Big Star, Vindicator possesses a sonically superior sound circa '72 (why do all those great '72-'74 albums sound so good?) that really brings out the most in the gritty, dueling electric guitars. Lee's voice cracks and pops the mic more than once but everything seems right so it's no big deal. The song titles appear morbid ("Ol' Morgue Mouth," "Hamburger Breath Stinkfinger") but actually reveal the odd sense of humor of a talented man with something to say.

Not every track is a winner, but Vindicator is worth a listen, especially for casual fans who think Arthur Lee's Love story began and ended with Changes.

4.0 out of 5 stars better than false start ! January 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
the first post love release by this extraordinarily gifted all around figure is better than the last love album, 1970's false start. a wide range of styles as always: funk, soul, heavy metal, and hard blues in particular. the highlight is the amazing love jumped through my window, featuring some of lee's best vocals ever. otherwise its a quite solid although not spectacular album i.e. no bad tracks but relatively little that is truly memorable. other stellar tracks include everybody's gotta live and you want change for your rerun. this contains some alternate versions and also a rather ordinary remake of hendrix's easy rider. this solo album should certainly please lee's fans, but those expecting another forever changes ( maybe the greatest album ever in my opinion) will of course be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Logical Next Step from Love's False Start December 17, 2007
By Bill
Format:Audio CD
This expands on the Jimi Hendrix connections/influences established on Love's False Start album. The liner notes are excellent and quite detailed (e.g., they explain Lee's concept for the album cover art). The best track is "Love Jumped through My Window," which is interesting because it sounds very much like the raunchier, hard rocking side of Big Star. Among the others, "Busted Feet," stands out as having some "interesting" dirty vocals. The whole thing is well played and well recorded. Should've been called a Love album.

4.0 out of 5 stars A long lost overlooked jewel July 1, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Arthur Lee in this incarnation vies with Hendrix for the transformation of blues into hard/acid rock. A complete about-face from the LOVE genre. Why this has been out of print for so many years is a mystery. Humorous, pithy, and good listening.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arthur Lee Shines With The First Band-Aid June 2, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This CD was Arthur's tribute to his friend Jimi Hendrix. It rocks. Arthur's version of Ezy Rider is a bonus not found on the LP. Busted Feet contains that Machine Gun Hendrix riff that only Arthur and Hendrix could master. Love Jumped Through My Window contains Arthur's wailing only matched with the screaming guitar. You can find roots music in Everybody's Gotta Live and He Knows A Lot Of Good Women. It ranks with the best of the Beatles and his one time band mate Hendrix. Watch your speakers with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vindicated! October 14, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love this album! Well I love every other thing that Arthurly and LOVE did too. I've dug them since 1966, and they don't get old. I'm surprised though that I didn't get this album until last year. I can't account for that!
No matter what people say, no matter how crazy the lyrics are or Arthur was, every tune is a work of art on every album. You always can read critics who try to rate and compare the albums and tunes, but really they are all very different. This one is too!
Funny, I wonder if the producers of the Cialis commercial credited the opening of Pencil In Hand in one of their TV ads...anybody notice?
These tunes are heavy duty and funny too. Like the one about his date last night (Hamburger Breath Stinkfinger). I'd get fish slapped if I quoted it here.
Arthur always sang with incredible passion and emotion, and with a beautiful voice too. Lyrics didn't need to make "sense", you know what he was singing about.
Miss you Arthurly. One of a kind. Beautiful. One of the all-time-greats.
