Love - Da Capo (1967)

Following their self-titled debut, Love expanded to a seven-piece for their second album, Da Capo. The first side of the record contains some of the finest American psychedelia ever recorded while the second side contains a 19-minute jam entitled "Revelation." It isn't a bad song by any means, but had Love invested as much effort and thought into the second side of the record as they did on the first, Da Capo could have been as great of a classic as their following record, Forever Changes. Regardless, Da Capo remains an important album because Arthur Lee's songwriting had begun to blossom, hinting at the greatness he would soon achieve. It also contains their only Top 40 hit, the fast-paced, pre-punk, "Seven & Seven Is." The instrumentation of the album is an impressive blend of psychedelic lead guitar, harpsichord, horns and flute. After Da Capo was released, apparently the band was on the verge of collapsing due to heavy drug use and internal conflicts. When they started recording their third album, there was so much turmoil that Arthur Lee and Bryan MacLean would have sessionmen backing them on their respective songs. Luckily, they were eventually able to get together and record their undisputed masterpiece, Forever Changes, but this lineup would unfortunately break up in early 1968.

Fun Fact: Mick Jagger admits that "She Comes In Colors" was the inspiration for "She's A Rainbow" from Their Satanic Majesties Request.

This was ripped from a CD with the mono and stereo versions. I uploaded just the stereo tracks. Sorry, I don't have the mono versions.

Dude nice you put it here - but it's "Da capo" actually. You can even see it on the cover. "Da capo" means "from the head" in italian where "the head" is a particular place in the musical piece, from which you often begin, usually a beginning just after the "intro". (even the wikipedia seems to make a mistake here so don;t worry!):)

Great blog, I must say! I can't wait to hear the album - Forever Changes is one of my all - time favourites.

Keep rocking!

Thanks for pointing that out, dude. Stop by again.

Da Capa is in the piece because it is a place you go back to to repeat a section, de capa al fine, go back to de capa and play to the al fine -- the end.

I usually do not drop a great deal of responses, but i
did a few searching and wound up here "Love - Da Capo (1967)".
And I do have a few questions for you if you don't mind. Is it just me or does it look as if like some of the comments look like written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other sites, I'd
like to follow anything new you have to post. Could you list of all
of all your public sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page

as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.

Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG
editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
