Perhaps best known for their 1966 hit single 7 and 7 Is and their 1967 critically acclaimed album Forever Changes, Love was an American Rock band that helped to define the Psychedelic Rock-era. The two main song writers in the group were Arthur Lee and guitarist Bryan MacLean. MacLean left the group in 1968. They were signed to Elektra Records that were initially active from the mid 60s until the mid 70s. Before Love disbanded, an album was recorded in 1973 titled Black Beauty, but it was never released because the label that was due to release it went bankrupt and the album never saw official release. The album that was produced by Paul Rothchild, who is known for his work with the band Love and other Elektra artists such as The Doors, is said to have a “steamy R&B sound with a heavy guitar punch” by Rolling Stone writer David Fricke. Now, High Moon Records are going to issue the album in June 2011 in all formats. They have also provided me with a FREE mp3 for download from the upcoming release. Enjoy!
