Forever Changes
de Andrew Hultkrans

Présentation de l'éditeur
Thirty Three and a Third is a new series of short books about critically acclaimed and much-loved albums of the last 40 years. The authors provide fresh, original perspectives – often through their access to and relationships with the key figures involved in the recording of these albums. By turns obsessive, passionate, creative, and informed, the books in this series demonstrate many different ways of writing about music. What binds the series together, and what brings it to life, is that all of the authors – musicians, broadcasters, scholars, and writers – are huge fans of the album they have chosen.

Arthur Lee: Alone Again or
de Barney Hoskyns

Présentation de l'éditeur
Arthur Lee's band, Love, is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential groups of the late sixties. Led by Lee through a tempestuous history of dissolution and resurrections, their psychedelic-folk masterpiece, Forever Changes, regularly appears high in polls of the greatest albums of all time. Recent times, however, have not been so kind: in 1996, Lee was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease and also received a twelve-year sentence for threatening his neighbors with a gun. Including interviews with Lee himself and guitarist Bryan Maclean, among many others, this fascinating tale reveals the dark side of the Summer of Love -- heroin, crime, and bitter ego battles -- while also tracking Lee's musical career through the post-Love years to his recent incarceration in a U.S. jail.
