The Complete History of Arthur Lee, Love and Recording Forever Changes

Part 1 of 2

Pt 2 or 2

Nice podcast.

The setting was the Sunset Strip, Hollywood, in the mid 1960s. The Whisky a Go Go and clubs up and down the street were the ultimate showcase for eclectic bands that brought together folk, rock, jazz and blues. At the forefront of this new wave was a group called Love. A wildly experimental band started by lyricist/founder Arthur Lee and guitarist Johnny Echols.

This comprehensive interview with Johnny Echols covers all the bases, from the inception of Love and how Johnny worked with artists like Jimi Hendrix and Billy Preston, to the recording of the first proto-punk rock single, “7 and 7 Is." It continues to the groundbreaking album, “Forever Changes,” still rated the number one rock album of all time by the British music press.

Johnny riffs with incredible stories and anecdotes about Little Richard, The Beatles, Jim Morrison, The Byrds, Buffalo Springfield, Charlie Manson, Neil Young, The Monkees and many more. It's a great trip down memory lane for those who were there, and for those who wish they were -- the lowdown on so many historic musical figures. Johnny Echols was there every step of the way.

The actual writing of a song usually comes in the form of a realisation.
