A True Day of Sadness [04 Aug 2006|10:39pm]

Arthur Lee has been called into service of the universe.

Love is in our hearts.

Love, the sound, will forever remain.


May you smile the next time you hear Arthur, on tape, cd, or mental remembrance of a song that changed you to who you are now.

And when you smile,

Arthur will know it, and feel a sense of completeness.

And all the efforts throughout his life, will be like a mountain top,

for all to appreciate, for its beauty and splendor and perhaps the illusion of it's unattainable height.

Arthur ---WE LOVE YOU------.

Never forget.

HELP! [26 Jun 2006|07:48pm]

My name is Alona, an 18 year old from Israel, and I really need your help.
My best friend's birthday is in two weeks from now..and I really want to give her
a Love poster of the Forever Changes album.
I tried to find it on eBay but didn't succeed =\
So I found a cool israeli website that I can upload a picture to and make whatever poster I like...the problem is that the biggest picture I've found is too small according to website:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

If you have a larger pic of the album I will be grateful forever.
Thanks ahead,

LOVE was covered by Velvet Underground?! [03 Apr 2006|05:05pm]

Well, I have just been told that VELVET UNDERGROUND once covered the "She comes in colours"?
Does anybody know, if it is true? And where can the record be found?

I don't know a thing about that, but as far as I do love the both bands, I would love to hear it.

Bad News for Arthur Lee [09 Nov 2005|05:13pm]

It looks like his band has given him the boot. Read this "official" announcement from The Love Band as they are calling themselves:


Johnny Echols however seems poised to take the The Love Band (formerly Baby Lemonade) to glory on his own.

I wonder what Arthur is going to do now. Will he try again with another incarnation of Love?

Keep your eyes peeled folks and report it here.

How is Arthur Lee not more famous? I just don't get it. Whenever I get talking about music with someone new either in the real world or here on LJ, hardly anybody seems to have a clue who Love are, never mind who he is. I mean, it's not as if Love were deliberately obscure or anything like that. If anything they were pretty commercial for the summer of love. I only know about four people who actually know who Arthur Lee is, and that's only cos I won't shut up about him. He's miles better than the likes of Lennon, McCartney, Jagger, Plant, Richards, Page, Reed, Dylan and Morrison - most great songwriters of the era. Even Hendrix, given legend status for decades, and probably decades to come. How come noone talks about The Everlasting First - arguably one of the best things Hendrix has had anything to do with.
It's just totally well and truly beyond me why Love aren't more famous. You've gotta admit, the world would be a better place if world leaders woke up one day to listen to Forever Changes.
I propose that all national anthems be replaced with You Set The Scene.

This community's been quiet for a few months. Anybody know of any plans for a UK tour any time soon?

I discovered Love by accident nearly 3 years ago. Was at Glastonbury walking around. Not much was on. Walking past the Other Stage, made myself to the front very easily, saw the guys perform Forever Changes in it's entirety and Seven and Seven Is as an encore, and been hooked ever since.
Saw them again last year. They're just brilliant.

New Guy [13 Nov 2004|02:18pm]

Ah, finally, a community that recognizes the true genius of Love. My name's Jeremy, I'm just 14, but I've been fortunate enough to trash all the radio rock and find my own 60's rock nirvana. And Love is no doubt one of the most underrated bands of all time. And I can see I'm not alone. So I figured I'd give an intro, instead of just slipping in through the back door. Anything else you wanna know, just comment or read my journal.

Oh, the snot has caked against my pants... [06 Nov 2004|12:10am]

I wonder if Arthur dressed like this today he would be ethnically profiled?

News! [21 Oct 2004|08:45am]

I just read an article on Billboard.com that said Arthur Lee was working on a new album. They said he played some of the new material in concert and that it sounded good.

Has anyone heard anything about this?

Worth the wait. [11 Oct 2004|10:17am]

[ mood | ecstatic ]

I will only give a brief review here of last night's LoVe concert in Royal Oak, Michigan.

It was spectacular. Much of the early material was covered. John Echols was there and his guitar work was smoking. He shared lead guitar duties with the amazing Mike Randall. The band was tight: I talked with one other fan who had been to the Detroit show 2 years ago, and he said they are better now than they were then.

Some high points for me were: 7 and 7 Is, Bummer in the Summer, Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale, My Flash on You, andYour Mind and We Belong Together.

They were just outrageously good. If you can go see them, by all means do it! I got to shake Arthur's hand afterward, and he signed a copy of their new EP for me.

What Are They Like This Time Around? [03 Oct 2004|08:00pm]

Who has seen Arthur Lee with Love on this current tour? I missed out when they came through town the other week. I saw them on the last two tours, though, and they were awesome.

Just curious, any differences on this tour from the last two?

Hi there. I purchased Forever Changes a few weeks ago,after reading many positive reviews and seeing this community somewhere. I found only one shop within 50 miles that carried a copy, and, being young and having no credit card, could not order it online, so I had to wait for weeks before finally being able to get a ride to the shop, a few towns over. But the effort I had to expend trying to get there made it all the more worthwhile when I got it home and popped it into my CD player, and heard, for the first time, what must surely be the most perfect album ever made.

I was totally blown away by how incredible Love is. It amazes me that more people have not heard of Arthur Lee, a genius surely on par with that of Jimi Hendrix or Jim Morrison. But, alas, they are rock gods, and Arthur, equally deserving, seems to have been forgotten somewhere in the bowels of time, a terrible tragedy, I feel.

I thank you for creating this community to help encourage others to here the greatness that was Love, and the amazing music that they created.
