“The musicians known collectively as Love were a group of five uniquely talented individuals…and though the full story of this fascinating cast of characters has yet to be told, this boxset represents a small sample of the body of work produced by this group and has proven to be timeless.” – Johnny Echols
For the first time ever, Love’s original run of singles from 1966 to 1969 are collected and reissued together along with two exclusive 7”s. The first vinyl box set from one of the all time great psych-pop bands should thrill and enlighten fans in equal measure.
New Land were granted access to the original analog master tapes courtesy of Rhino / Warner and all tracks were remastered especially for these singles by Grammy nominated mastering engineer Bill Inglot. Presented inside a deluxe box with spot-on gloss finish, the eight 7” singles, each featuring unique and original picture sleeves with ‘Elektra-style’ New Land labels. The two bonus singles include the previously only released promotionally ‘Que Vida’ / ‘Hey Joe’ and the newly created ‘Always See Your Face’ / ‘August’ single
At the centre of this set is a 62-page booklet featuring track-by-track annotation by original guitarist Johnny Echols and in-depth liner notes from Grammy Award nominated writer Andrew Sandoval. For this package we have unearthed never-before-seen photographs of the band and included rare posters, singles, original master tapes and more. Every set also comes with a set of two promotional postcards.
Licensed with the blessing of Elektra Records founder and the man who signed Love, Jac Holzman, this is the first time a release has been put together which focuses on the bands incredible run of singles through the 1960s.
A must have for any fan, this is the ultimate collectors item. The music inside shines brighter than ever.
