LOVE (Arthur Lee)
Records are not for sale - For your viewing pleasure only

The story of "Love" is the story of the legend Arthur Lee.
Lee was born as Arthur Taylor in Memphis, Tennessee. In 1965, Lee searched for a group name after he wrote some songs, inspired by Jimi hendrix and The Byrds. The name Love was chosen after a club audience voted it as the best choice. Lee's early appearances were at clubs on Los Angeles' famed Sunset Strip. Love's music has been described as a mixture of folk-rock and psychedelic rock. Love released three albums, where Forever Changes is the most famous. It's regarded by critics and fans alike as Love's finest recording, and one of the best records of the '60s. In 1968 Love disbanded but Lee revived the group's name shortly thereafter. The new Love featured an all-new lineup and the album False Start featuring a track with Jimi Hendrix on guitar entitled "The Everlasting First". In 1972 Lee released his first solo album together with Steve Winwood but it failed to chart. Throughout the 1970s and 1980s, there were various attempts to reunite the original Love lineup. In the autumn of 1996, Arthur Lee was sentenced to 12 years for illegal possession of a firearm. While in prison Lee refused visitors and interviews. Former bandmates Bryan Maclean and Ken Forssi both died while Lee was incarcerated. Lee was released from prison, having served 5 1/2 years of his original sentence. He toured with yet a new incarnation of Love in 2002. In April 2006 it was publicly announced that Arthur was being treated for acute leukemia. A tribute fund was set up shortly after the announcement, with a series of benefit concerts to be performed to help pay medical bills. Lee passed away quietly and peacefully on August 3 2006, in Memphis with his wife Diane at his side.
