Overview

To paraphrase ol' Aunt Rosie, it's beautiful to be important, but it's more important to be beautiful -- and that's made abundantly clear on this remade, remodeled version of what may well be the most gorgeous artifact of the psychedelic era. In its original incarnation, Forever Changes was the ultimate distillation of Love leader Arthur Lee's wildly mercurial psyche, comprising both fierce guitar rock ("A House if Not a Motel") and chiming pop ("The Daily Planet"). The album's core, however, was a passel of orchestral masterworks -- like the yearning "Alone Again Or" -- that were every bit as mind-expanding as anything on Sgt. Pepper's or Pet Sounds. This newly expanded edition sprinkles seven new tracks atop the sonic stew, and the new flavors are mighty enticing indeed, particularly "Hummingbirds" (which turns out to be an embryonic, considerably different, version of the album's "The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything like This"). Other new additions include the previously unreleased "Wonder People" and the classic between-albums single "Your Mind and We Belong Together." Along with extensive liner notes, which chronicle the band's winding, far-from-happy story, the new material makes this a worthwhile purchase even for those who already own Forever Changes. If you don't, well, now there's no excuse!
