Close call between 'Love' and 'Da Capo'. I think Da Capo just shades it for me though.

This is the time and this is the time and it is time, time, time, time, time, time, time.....

The first record as we know had that "Byrdsy" sound and we can see that influence and then came Da Capo and then came......things grow in progression if a band has potential among those making its music.. they aced it on the 3rd one...

The first LOVE LP started it all for me. FC became my favorite but the self titled LOVE is definitely my second choice

hey joe...you know some enterprising people should (if I should say this myself!) make up something to commemorate those here who "stayed" through thick and thin with that er...3rd "pretty good" record since it came out..I mean it could've gone the way of the dodo if it wasn't for the "few"....

Jac Holzman certainly deserves some sort of prize!
Just for signing them to an ALBUM deal!!

I didn't know he sequenced that album: you've got Alone again or, followed closely by A House is not a motel. Then Andmoreagain cushioning THAT blow, The Daily Planet, Old man (well, where else could it go after all!)
Then "The Red telephone". Well, that can't open the album side I reckon!

Then side 2 kicking off with the shorthand "Between Clark and Hilldale" (aka "Maybe the people would be the times or between Clark and Hilldale" - the good old Slop Affair getting a name check)

Of course "Live and Let Live" (McCartney owes royalties) and how can you forget the sweet pretty "The Good humor man he sees everything like this" (ok, thats a little strange, but PERHAPS a better title than "Hummingbirds")

Fits in well despite being recorded earlier

Of course Arthur owes royalties on "Bummer in the summer" - great lyrics on that one

And of course "You set the scene".. well, you do don't you?

Yep, time to take the Buddy Holly off my cd player and put this sucker on again for what is probably the 1400th time..

and no "Revolution Number 9" to skip - isn't that nice?

or "Revelation" considering!

Yes sir..WE all set the scene. eh???.....

Really I wish I could be in Arthur's head when he planned out THAT record. One thing for me and this is my personal view is that the record wants you to pay attention to what's going on. All it does I think is grab you, holds you and just brings you into the "puzzle palace" where all you get are suggestions of question after question with points of view. I just think that's what happens to everybody whether they know or it not when they take listens. Some want to think there are answers so they "stay" and explore the musical territory. And for others well it ain't their speed so it's off to the surf or whatever! The FC journey ain't for them.

I wonder whether there is any other album in history that has such a high proportion of its tracks with titles that don't actually appear in the songs: House/Motel; Daily Planet; Red Telephone; Clark and Hilldale; Live and Let Live; Good Humor Man and You Set The Scene. At a stretch you could also add Laughing Stock and Your Mind and We!

Along with some esoteric verses!!! .....Arthur was a gem and national treasure!! Why is it that the UK .... Denmark ....Holland (& many other European countries)are the only places to really appreciate our great artists??!! You all in the UK especially should be proud to have honored Arthur while he was alive....so many others that have gone by the wayside in the USA over the years, such as Del Shannon, Phil Ochs, and so on, were lovingly revered long after most folks here forgot them!! Thanks.....

"esoteric verses"..right and and those titles John alluded to.... that also kind of made you pay attention..I mean there should be a title award or something for "Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark and Hilldale"...a little bit different than SWALBR!
And then Arthur can get really simple with having us not "using up our time" with the record or being on the moon if someone can't make any room!......

follow ups in the title award column:

(in no particular order)

1. The Good Humor Man He Sees Everything Like This

(which says it all really)

2. Every Time I Look Up I'm Down or White Dog (I Don't Know What That Means)

(well, at least hes being upfront about it. Even HE doesn't know what it means)

3. The Watcher

(NOT! hey! who wrote this crap?!)

4. You set the scene

(life on the planet..)

5. The Daily Planet

(tho you need to hear the song lyrics to link the title up with them:

In the morning we arise and
Start the day the same old way
As yesterday the day before and
All in all it's just a day like
All the rest so do your best with
Chewing gum and it is oh so
Repetitious
Waiting on the sun

Down on Gold Star Boulevard it
Never fails to bring me down
The sirens and the accidents and
For a laugh there's Plastic Nancy
She's real fancy with her children
They'll go far, she
Buys them toys to
Keep in practice
Waiting on the war

I feel shivers in my spine
When the iceman, yes his ice is melting
Won't be there on time
Hope he finds a rhyme
For his little mind

I can see you
With no (hands)
(face)
Eyes I need you
You're my (heart)
(face)
Look we're going round and round

Arthur doesn't sing the words And-More-Again; he is in fact singing Aunt Morgan, and therefore the title of the song does not appear in the lyrics.

....and Hendrix really said,"Excuse me while I kiss this guy..."
or CCR..."there's a bathroom on the rise!"



If we'd just listen!!

I heard that rumor but I don't think it's true. Arthur never said what Andmoreagain was about.
