Out Here is the fifth album by Love, released in December 1969 on Blue Thumb Records in the United States, and Harvest in the United Kingdom. With the classic line-up of Love a memory, the group metamorphosized into a more experimental and free-flowing group, bearing little resemblance to its past except for the presence of leader Arthur Lee. Recording three LPs worth of material with his new group, Lee gave one to Elektra Records in order to fulfill the contract that had been in place for nearly four years. Four Sail, the result of Elektra's cherry-picking, was released in August 1969. Arranging the two remaining LPs into a double album, Lee signed a new contract with the independent Blue Thumb Records(*) and oversaw the release of the seventeen-track Out Here in December 1969, a mere matter of months after Elektra released Four Sail. Featuring Lee and company tackling funk, rock, ska and soul with ease, it proved that while Love may have been past their apex, that they were still capable of producing entertaining and thought-provoking songs. Arthur Lee - rhythm guitar, piano, organ, lead vocals, producer, Jay Donnellan - lead guitar, Frank Fayad - bass, George Suranovich - drums, Jim Hobson - organ, piano (01,13), Paul Martin - lead guitar (05), Gary Rowles - lead guitar (10) and Drachen Theaker - drums (03).
