On The Horizon: Love Springs Eternal For Arthur Lee

Dan Nooger, Circus, March 1975

ARTHUR LEE sits by the picture window of his mid-Manhattan hotel room, staring at the hotel across the bustling street below. "I just couldn't see," he says, his shaved head bobbing beneath a huge floppy red and blue striped hat, "throwing away the eight years I put into building up the name of Love." There are still enough rumors about the original Love to keep any three of today's decadence and downer bands in headlines for many a month. But with Reel To Real (on RSO Records), Arthur Lee has stepped out of the shadows of his past to reaffirm his rightful place as one of the foremost innovators in American rock today.
