All you need is......

Love's 'Forever Changes' is one of those Mojo approved essentials in any collection of 60's classics. It sits alongside Revolver, Pet Sounds and Younger than Yesterday with very good reason. By turns beautiful and sinister it sounds like no other album from its era and reflects the uneasy atmosphere of the West Coast in the late 60's. It also reflects the dysfunctional genius of the people involved in its making, especially the mercurial Arthur Lee, who died very recently. Love tracks have appeared all over Blogland recently so I thought I would post two tracks that name-check Arthur and a reverential cover by Liverpool's biggest Love(rs), the mighty Shack.

Shack- Byrds Turn To Stone

Lloyd Cole And The Commotions- Are You Ready To Be Heartbroken

Shack- A House Is Not A Motel
