and Love's unreleased record from 1973! Black Beauty is a more diverse and soulful set than a lot of what we've heard from Lee
's harder rocking 70s years – and it's given a much-deserved top notch release by High Moon Records! It's raw in the best possible sense, with a live feel, as played by a well-oiled band. It's got some blistering rockers, albeit with a heavy dose of bluesy soul in the mix, and includes some surprisingly effective creative twists – especially the Caribbean-inflected "Beep Beep". This is a really cool record that we're thrilled to see getting some belated love and respect – and most importantly, it's worthy of Arthur Lee
's legend. Other tracks include "Young & Able (Good & Evil)", "Midnight Sun", "Can't Find It", "Walk Right In", "Skid", "Stay Away", "Lonely Pigs". "See Myself In You" and "Product Of The Times". Very cool package – a book-style cover, with 64 pages of notes and photos – and bonus tracks that include "Thomasine & Bushrod", "Keep On Shinin (live)", "LA Blues", "Every Time I Look Up I'm Down (live)", and even an interveiw!
