1960s rock band Love's two records under Blue Thumb are coming in one package along with a rare bonus.
Rock outfit Love that rose to prominence in late '60s will have two of their 'so-so' albums molded into one record. The fifth and sixth album that was recorded for Blue Thumb Records would be out on June 26 via Hip-O Select/Geffen Records under the name "The Blue Thumb Recordings".
The record will be made a triple disc package whereby one disc contain the tracks from the band's 1969 album "Out Here". In comparison to their 1967 album "Forever Changes", this record is no value that it barely reached the number 100 in Billboard 200 chart. Some said that the experimental and free-flowing sound featured in this album sounds like a rush and the B-side of "Four Sail" which was released in the same year.
"False Start" will make the second disc. The record also received a mild reception upon its release in 1970. This album, however showed frontman Arthur Lee heavily influenced by Jimi Hendrix whom he tapped to play in the track "The Everlasting First". This was the second and final album the band made for Blue Thumb Records.
The last disc contains unreleased disc of live recordings that was recently discovered. It is one of the rare footage of the band performing in England in 1970. During the concert, the band played their classics such as "My Little Red Book", "Orange Skies" and "Andmoreagain".
