The first two Love albums, Love and Da Capo (the good side), should be in every household that considers itself to be a house of the rock and/or the roll!!
LA band Love, to a point, were best known for adding teen swagger to the Burt Bacharach/Hal David song "My Little Red Book"; it was their first A side and biggest hit. The rest of Love, AND one side of their next LP, Da Capo (which includes the explosive "7 & 7 is") are '60s garage canon. Um...Forever Changes too. However, in the last twenty years Forever Changes gained massive pop culture weight as the (ahem) "American" Sgt. Pepper, a bummer nod since Sgt. Pepper has ZITCH '60s garage cred!!
Love was one of the few garage bands to actually reach a level of expansive songwriting; Love could be hard beat/R&B/punk or could fade seamlessly into twisted folk-rock, and it all sounded like Love. Fucking genius, a seemingly effortless collaboration of original band members Arthur Lee, Johnny Echols, and Bryan McClean. The rest of Love's albums Four Sail, Out Here, False Start, and Reel to Real are fucking fantastic too, but the music changed with the times and new line-ups as the band became a somewhat exclusive medium for Lee.
Were he still alive, today would have been Arthur Lee, Love's frontman's 68th birthday.
