Arthur Lee &
Love

Complete Forever
Changes Live
The fingerpicked
intro to Bryan MacLean's breathtaking "Alone Again Or" starts the heady, cinematic, night-through-day-through-night
journey of Forever Changes. The 1967 album
was the magnum opus of Love's troubled
visionary, Arthur Lee.
MacLean, co-founder Lee, and Johnny
Echols were Love's trio of guitar players
and their work continues to influence later
generations of players. In the second song,
"A House Is Not A Motel," you can hear
all the elements of the band that inspired
everyone from the Doors to Led Zeppelin
to the MC5's Wayne Kramer and more. The
song begins with aggressive acoustic guitar
and climaxes with a searing electric solo.
Before his death in 2006, Lee featured a
complete performance of Forever Changes
as the centerpiece of his live shows.
The recording here on vinyl and CD with
bonus material captures a 2003 Glastonbury
Festival show with latter-day Love bassist
Frank Fayer and drummer George Suranovich behind Lee and guitarist Gary Rowles.
They channel the original album in form
as well as spirit, undeterred by a couple of
irrelevant technical glitches.
It's an arresting, powerful performance
from start to finish; a worthy companion
piece to the original. - Rick Allen

John Hurt

Haynes and Trucks: Kirk West.

Live At Oberlin
College 4-15-65
Tr y ing to categorize John Hurt
is almost impossible, as he worked in so many traditions:
country blues, gospel, and within the
larger fabric of American folk music. He
was a Southern "songster" who recorded
some sides in 1928 and then disappeared
for over three decades, reemerging in
the early '60s as young white audiences
rediscovered our nation's roots music. And
unlike the category of true Delta blues,
Hurt's peripatetic bass lines have far more
to do with Piedmont blues, ragtime, and
stride-piano approaches.
This live set was cut during Hurt's career
renaissance and features the guitarist singing and fingerpicking, likely on a Guild

ROCKING THE FOX

W

hat an embarrassment of riches this
boxed set offers.
Recorded on three nights
in September 2004 at the
Fox Theatre in Atlanta, it
showcases a band that
surely will be remembered
as one of the best rock
outfits ever. This was part
of their 35th-anniversary
tour and the entire band is
engaged and played amazingly well all three nights
of their stand at the Fox.
Along with the great
musicianship is the
astounding fact that each
night featured a different
setlist, with only one song
repeated - "Dreams,"
which features a different guitarist playing lead
every night; the first is
former Allman Brother
Jack Pearson, night two
features Derek Trucks,
then Warren Haynes takes
a turn on night three. All
are more than up to the
task of pushing and pulling
the rhythm section to
places that are dream territory for most other bands.
And the late, great Gregg

Allman's pleading vocals
bring the tune home.
It would have been a
pleasure to be in the crowd
for any of the shows. Each
night there's a stellar mix
of Allman classics and
some well-chosen covers.
Night one kicks off with a
perfect rendition of "Moun-

The Allman Brothers
Band
The Fox Box

tain Jam" that Trucks and
Haynes manage to turn
into Weather Report's
"Byrdland" before coming
back home to the familiar
melody. Several hours
later they wrap that night
up with a funky version of
"Southbound" that captures the band working at
full tilt. In between you get

sizzling versions of Allman
classics like "Midnight
Rider," "Ain't Wastin'
Time No More," and "You
Don't Love Me," all with
stunning guitar work from
Trucks and Haynes. They
cover Eric Clapton and the
Grateful Dead in between.
The other two nights
follow a similar strategy.
Songs every fan knows
well - like a 40-minute
version of "In Memory
of Elizabeth Reed" or a
funky "Leave My Blues
At Home" - mix with
covers of blues classics. On night two they
surprise the crowd with
"Blue Sky." It's the first
time the band played the
song since songwriter
Dickey Betts had been
booted from the band four
years earlier. Fittingly,
night three ends with a
blistering 15-minute version of "Whipping Post."
The recent deaths of
Gregg Allman and Butch
Trucks ensure we won't
hear the Allman Brothers
again. While it's certainly
not the same as seeing
them live, this set is a
perfect document of the
band. - John Heidt
