Love - 1966 - Love

Love was an American rock group from Los Angeles of the late 1960s and early 1970s. They were led by singer, songwriter and guitarist Arthur Lee and the group's second songwriter, guitarist Bryan MacLean. One of the first racially diverse American pop bands, their music reflected different influences, combining elements of rock and roll, garage rock, folk and psychedelia. Arthur Lee - lead vocals, percussion, harmonica, drums, John Echols - lead guitar, - Bryan Maclean - rhythm guitar, lead vocals, Ken Forssi - bass and Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer - drums. Love is the eponymous debut by Love. Twelve of the album's fourteen tracks were recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders in Hollywood on January 24-27, 1966. The remaining two tracks ("A Message To Pretty" and "My Flash On You") come from another, undocumented session. One of the first rock albums issued on then-folk giant Elektra Records, the album was anchored by the group's radical reworking of the Burt Bacharach-Hal David song "My Little Red Book" which had guitar riffs that gave Syd Barrett some inspiration to write the Pink Floyd song "Interstellar Overdrive" which is on Pink Floyd's album The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn, the anti-drug anthem "Signed D.C." (allegedly a reference to one-time Love drummer Don Conka), and the poignant "A Message to Pretty". The stark instrumental "Emotions" is used uncredited in Haskell Wexler's 1969 film Medium Cool as a recurring theme. "My Little Red Book" was featured over the final credits of the movie High Fidelity in 2000, and the Beverly Hills 90210 episode "Alone at the Top" in 1995.
