The third and final album by the original Love lineup, FOREVER CHANGES regularly draws epic praise. Rolling Stone described it as elegant armageddon when listing it as #40 in the 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time, and, placing it in the context of the late 60s in another rave review, called it, one of the most distinctive masterpieces in that era of masterpieces. A landmark work that s the L.A.-based
psychedelic folk-rock pioneers most fully realized studio effort, it was produced by band cofounder/frontman Arthur Lee and The Doors engineer/producer Bruce
Botnick, and released by Elektra in early 68. Rhino s new two-disc COLLECTOR S EDITION revisits this all-time classic, building on its mind-expanding brilliance with over an hour of previously unreleased and rare bonus material, including an

But do not be fooled. This is not a sad album in any way. Like how that totally awesome album cover portrays, it is life itself, a swirling menagerie of colors, moods and emotions. Can anyone doubt this after the way the first song, "Alone again or" begins with that quiet accoustic guitar and then knocks you right out in the middle with that majestic horn solo?
Throughout the album, our singer is sad, but never downtrodden. There is a perkiness even in the really delicate songs like "Andmoreagain" and "The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This"-the latter one of the most gorgeous songs about summer ever written. Even with the two rockers, "A House Is Not A Motel" and "Live And Let Live", the mood is subdued, the anger is controlled and aimed carefully like a pointed finger.
Then there are the really bubbly songs: "Between Clark and Hillsdale" makes you want to cha-cha past your own local bunch of sidewalk stores right after you get out of work while there're still a couple hours of summer sun left; and "You Set The Scene" has to be one of the greatest signature songs of the era. It's one of those majestic march of life songs.Read more ›
