WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Love is known not only for their ornate 1967 masterpiece "Forever Changes" (#40 on Rolling Stone Magazine 2004 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time), but also for their snarling proto-punk hits "My Little Red Book" and "7&7 Is"; with Johnny Echols from the classic line-up, Love will play a liberal dose from both genres on their first U.S. tour since the death of founder Arthur Lee in 2006. Like fellow New Yorkers the Rascals, the Vagrants prominently featured a Hammond organ, and often played soul-influenced rock. The Vagrants were far more guitar-based than the Rascals, however, as well as projecting a more garagey, less mature outlook; their later material lands somewhere between the Rascals and Vanilla Fudge.
