Four Sail - Elektra 1969
The sound on the new version of Love is not as sophisticated as on the previous two albums, but not unlike the rawer sound of their 1966 debut album. During 1968 Arthur Lee and his new Love recorded numerous new songs of which some were chosen to fulfill their contract with Elektra, which would be the album "Four Sail". Most ot the other recordings from these sessions ended up on their debut album for "Blue Thumb Records" - the double album "Out Here".
Though the material on this album is not as consistent as on "Forever Changes" there are quite a few Love gems here. With the melodic beauty of "Your Friend and Mine", "I'm With You" and "Always See Your Face" that's where the album comes closest to the sound of "Forever Changes"
Some listeners may find that the lenghty and sometimes wild guitar solos spoil some of the tracks; especially on songs like "August", "Singing Cowboy" and "Nothing".
