Day 11

July 17th 2016

In stark contrast to Arthur Lee’s utter wordiness, sit yourself down and have a listen to the extraordinary guitar burn-up of ‘Love Is More Than Words (or Better Late Than Never)’. That Arthur was loose enough (or even Hendrix-informed enough) to allow this 11-and-a-half-minute proto-metal masterpiece onto an album by Love, albeit a late incarnation of Love, is evidence of the grandness of him as an artist. That so much of the body of the song was given over not to new Arthur rhymes but to Gary Rowles’ guitar solo of real vengeance shows a beautiful lack of egotism on Arthur’s part. Give it a spin – what do you think?
