Arthur Lee & Love - Five String Serenade (1992) [Reissue 2002]

This New Rose Records edition of FIVE STRING SERENADE, the very last Arthur Lee CD, was originally released in 1992, is a musical document not to miss! This recording is the most recent testimonial from the recording studio. Free of any commercial edicts, and as diverse as a Love album can get, it contains a variety of influences: James Brown, The Seeds, The Mysterians, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Jimi Hendrix. Songs such as "I Believe In You", "Somebody's Watching You" or "Seventeen" expose the audience to the essence of Lee's music. The expresiveness and solidity of Lee's voice is captured on "Five String Serenade", which would be covered later by Mazzy Star. Speaking of which, only good bands have praised Love's magical genius: Alice Cooper, The Ramones, The Damned, New Christs, Barracudas, Hellacopters... Wonder why?

One of rock's most underrated bands (and there have been a surprisingly large number) is Arthur Lee's LOVE. LOVE made some of the most unique and best records of the sixties. Under Arthur Lee's leadership, LOVE covered punk, psychedelia and acoustic music all with equal enthusiasm and grace. Also important to remember is the fact that Lee was the man who discovered The Doors and got them a deal with Elektra.

Arthur Lee formed LOVE in 1965. LOVE's first LP, 1966's Love, was a psychedelic-punk masterpiece. The second album, Da Capo from late 1966, showed the group ahead of its time, its sound already mushrooming from the ideas put forth on the debut album. One listen to the LP and you'll wonder why it isn't remembered more widely as one of the decade's highpoints. LOVE's next album is remembered a little more as the classic it is: 1967's Forever Changes, every bit as necessary as The Velvet Underground And Nico, Pink Floyd's âPiper at the Gates of Dawn or Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland. Forever Changes's unique spark is impossible to deny. It was recently voted #11 in Mojo magazine's critics and listeners polls of the top albums of all time.
Arthur broke the band up and made a "new" LOVE (the first of many). Lee revived the LOVE name for Reel To Real in 1974, and continued to tour as Arthur Lee and LOVE (usually backed by the L.A. band Baby Lemonade) until his incarceration.
