Best Of Love

LP (Item 376665) Rhino, 1960s — Condition: Near Mint-

The 60s genius of Love in all its glory – served up here on a set of 16 tracks that perfectly define all that's wonderful about the band! The collection focuses in on titles that really have the band hitting their hardest punch – short numbers that brilliantly brew up 60s garage and bluesy roots with that frenzied energy that made Arthur Lee one of the real standout talents of his generation – one of the most personal, individual stamps anyone left on music from the LA scene at the time – which is saying a hell of a lot! Every track here is wonderful – and titles include "My Little Red Book", "Can't Explain", "Hey Joe", "Signed DC", "Stephanie Knows Who", "She Comes In Colors", "Your Mind And We Belong Together", "Your Friend And Mine – Neil's Song", "Seven And Seven Is", "Alone Again Or", "Andmoreagain", "Que Vida", "Robert Montgomery", "Orange Skies", "Laughing Stock", and "Number Fourteen".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Mid 80s Golden Archive Series pressing, still in the shrink with hype sticker.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Elektra, 1969. Near Mint-

Out Here
Blue Thumb, Early 70s. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold
A strange album when put next to Love's Elektra records – and one that's not without its weaknesses – but the band's got a kick-ass drummer, and the record's filled with more than a few tasty moments that have a bit of funk in them. Layered with Arthur Lee's hip guitar, the sound is ... LP, Vinyl record album
