Lost Arthur Lee and Love Album Finally Gets Release Date


Here’s some good news for those of us who’ve just about worn out our Forever Changes records: Arthur Lee’s long-lost album Black Beauty is finally set for release, nearly four decades after it was recorded, in 1973. Credited to Arthur Lee and Love, it would have been the follow-up to the late, troubled Love front man’s solo debut, Vindicator (1972). Black Beauty, a longtime favorite of bootleggers and Love fanatics, will be the first release by the new reissue label, High Moon Records, on June 7th. If they keep up the great taste, they may just give our favorite vinyl revivalists, 4 Men with Beards, a run for their money. [via L.A. Times ]
