Love, led by the brilliant and complicated Arthur Lee, is one of the most influential American rock bands of all time, whose legend continues to grow. The 2014 reissue of their 1974 RSO album Reel to Real on High Moon Records showed the band at the height of their rock/soul/funk powers, and included twelve previously-unreleased outtakes from the master tapes of the original sessions.
This special release features five of those tracks appearing on vinyl for the first time, including three original Arthur Lee compositions unearthed from the multitrack tapes and never heard before the 2014 reissue: the sweet and soulful “You Gotta Feel It”; a catchy rock-pop tune called “I Gotta Remember”; and “Do It Yourself”, a blast of high-energy, horn-infused funk driven by Lee’s strutting vocals. The EP includes the original version of “Everybody’s Gotta Live” (recently featured in the acclaimed film Jojo Rabbit, and covered by Mac Miller on his posthumous album Circles) as well as a full-band electric performance of “Everybody’s Gotta Live” and an explosive alternate take of “Singing Cowboy.” Remastered for vinyl by Dan Hersch and cut at 45 RPM, this 12 inch EP is graced by original artwork from iconic artist Jess Rotter.
