First Time Audiophile Vinyl Release of Their Historic Elektra Records Era!
The legendary underground rock superstars Love fronted by the brilliant Arthur Lee and his fellow rockers Bryan MacLean, Alban Pfisterer, Johnny Echols, Ken Forsi, John Fleckenstein and Michael Stuart set the music world on fire back in the mid to late sixties with their hypnotic brand of rock n roll. With major exposure on L.A.s Sunset Strip, along with fellow mega bands The Byrds and The Doors, Loves eclectic songs, master showmanship and stellar music abilities made them one of the few premiere bands who helped architect the fusion of acid and garage rock, which is still heard in alternative rock of today. Love to this day are still revered and loved by their continual growing legion of fans worldwide.
In 1980, Rhino and Elektra Records honored these hugely popular rockers with their stellar anthology album simply titled Best Of Love. Filled with a treasure trove of 16 charting singles, deep Elektra Records album tracks, as well as rare b-sides, this incredible LP brought newfound acclaim to the band who were now influencing a whole new legion of fans.
No stone is left unturned, as this 16-track masterpiece is loaded with hit singles like My Little Red Book, She Comes In Colors, 7 And 7 Is, Hey Joe plus selections from their most loved album Forever Changes with the masterpieces Along Again Or and Andmoreagain.
As one of the more rare albums in their catalog, Best Of Love has been out of print for years, making it an instant collectors item, which hasnt seen the light of day for over four decades... that is until now!
