Presumably its a case of keeping their advertisers happy. Or they've been granted an exclusive with Elton John, so long as he's on the cover.

It's a shame though. I can't believe anyone who works at Mojo would rather see the man who subjected the world to "Candle in the Wind" on the cover instead of the man who wrote "Forever Changes".

Seemed to me that the Mojo bio gave short shrift to the Baby Lemonade years. (Even if Rusty did get a sidebar). And no mention of Gene Kraut who brought Arthur to his most glorious orchestral performances.

Jazmann, you echo my thoughts exactly - I bought Mojo yesterday and felt the article seemed to jump from the 60s/70s to 2006 in Memphis without much in between, and the brilliant live performances of recent years were pretty much glossed over. Not mentioning Gene Kraut was unbelievable.

Seems like the Mojo article was slanted by the perspective of Mark Linn who was pretty well shut out of the Baby Lemonade years and this Roberson fellow who seems to have been part of the ersatz Memphis "Love" which to my knowledge never actually played a note of music with Arthur.

I think all you guys are jumpin' the gun here. Elton's new disc was known to be coming out and Arthur's untimely end was not. Get a grip here. We will all joyfully see fantastic presentation on Arthur and Love I GUARANTEE IT!! Both MOJO & UNCUT are well aware and will come through..I love and totally agree with the JAZMAAN'S "ersatz" comment. I had to laugh cuz its how I felt about it too. I'm sure we'll here from one of them shortly.

There's also a mention of Arthur Lee on page 114 of Mojo. As my selection of 'Five String Serenade' is at No.1 in the readers top 10.

Looking forward to reading the article, not available around here
yet. I don't know why the Memphis "Love' would have been 'eratz', all seemed to have been fine musicians.
The 'BL' years have been well covered in the past.

"Ersatz" means "bogus substitute". It doesn't matter whether they were "fine musicians" or not. They weren't "Love" if Arthur didn't even know their names.

man, i don't know ... i think it's important to remember where arthur was at, at the end of his life, not just before or forty years earlier. if they were the new love, joke about it though he did, then they were the new love ... i think it's still worth something ...

I'd agree with "worth something," but not much more than honorable mention. However I'd sure like to hear whatever practice or idea sessions with the new line-up that may have been captured on tape...

I don't see what Arthur knowing their names has to do with it.
They may not have been Love because they were never able to perform as such, but had they performed, they would have been as
"bogus" as any of the many LOVEs that played with AL after
1968.

With Johnny E rejoined Arthur and Band and began to play live shows plus the fact that at least they were from Los Angeles was a big cluee as to what separates Love with Arthur Lee from all the bogus,ersatz & plain crappy LOVES...when I first saw that picture of Arthur with that new group I thought it was Grand Funk Railroad for a moment. As I write this I recall "LOVE REUNION" show at the Old Waldorf nightclub in San Francisco in the mid-seventies.The show featured Arthur and Bryan McLean and a rather sloppy back up band. Arthur was kinda overbearing that night and Bryan was sorta frozen but did a great version of Old Man. I was in the booming record business back then and had access to the backstage where I got upclose &personal with Arthur & Bryan as well as Tom Petty and Dwight Twilley who open for LOVE that night. Arthur was still pretty rambunctous so spoke with Bryan who was quite tall as I remember. He was very polite and answered whaterver dumb questions I asked. He also expressed displeasure about Arthur's nutty performance. There is a Picture Disc lp that depicts that performance or the Whisky L A show from the same "tour".
