Love - Love Lost (2009) Retail CD
Back in 1972, I can recall the lengthy hiatus that had seemed to follow the release of the last proper Love album. Eventually our music magazines began to report that Arthur Lee was recording as a solo artist for A&M...and in due course this was confirmed in an interview with surviving Doors. I do not recall seeing it reported anywhere at the time that a new look Love had signed with Columbia in early '71 and had already recorded an unreleased album for the label. With this very welcome new release, we are now able to explore fully this hitherto unknown epoch in Love history. Arthur Lee's solomore… acoustic tracks on the album definitely have an eeriness to them.... a welcome change following the heavily amplified all electric sound on 'False Start'. By the same token, the songs featuring the ensemble playing of Lee, Tarwater, Fayad and Poncher seem to have much more edge and subtlety to them than the versions that were re-recorded for 'Vindicator' a year later. It is interesting to note that the version of 'Everybody's Gotta Live' included here had not yet been fully developed....Arthur had yet to pen the lines that begin: "It's seems like I have seen just about a million sunsets, she said if you're with me I'll never go away". Of the previously unheard songs, the most melodic is probably 'For a Day', which is vaguely reminiscent of John Sebastian's 'Daydream'. There is also a hidden track tucked away at the very end of the CD....but I'll leave everyone to discover that one for themselves!
You obviously wouldn't want to start with 'Love Lost' if you were seeking to turn someone on to Love's music for the first time. As David Angel observed towards the end of 'Love Story', some people are destined to do a particular thing at a particular time.....and I think that in all honesty by 1971, Arthur's star had already burned brilliantly....and had faded. But pitched midway between 'False Start' and 'Vindicator', this album is, to my ears better than either. And the sound of Frank Fayad's ever faithful bass - every bit as resonant as it is on 'Four Sail' - is strangely moving.
