Loves recent resurgence in popularity has meant that a whole new generation of music fans can enjoy the mastery of their back catalogue. For the novice, youd be hard pressed to find fault with the selections on She Comes In Colours. Drawing on the bands first four (and best) albums, the musical growth of the band is charted with authority.
The musical change from the bands earliest incarnation as a snotty garage rock group covering "My Little Red Book" and "Hey Joe" to the "acoustic punk" sound of Forever Changes (cited as the best album ever, and with good reason) seems a quantum leap, but the interim selections (especially Bryan Macleans "Softly To Me" and "Orange Skies") point in that direction whilst retaining the bands identity. After the single-only "Your Mind And We Belong Together" the band fell apart and the new Love (Arthur Lee and three new musicians) seem to be following trends instead of setting them.
Curious parties are nearly always directed to Forever Changes as a starting point, but for a true view of the bands early history (and a nice complement to the Out There collection that rounds up the later albums) this is highly recommended.
