Certain Songs #990: Love – “Alone Again Or”

Album: Forever Changes
Year: 1967

Even now, forty years later, there really isn’t anything quite like Forever Changes, the baroque psychedelic classic that Love unleashed upon the world in late 1967.

While their previous two albums had their moments — the rocked up Burt Bacharach/Hal David of “My Little Red Book,” the mandated-by-law cover of “Hey Joe” and the drum-fueled math problem of “7 and 7 Is,” none of it prepared the world for the way the acoustic guitars faded in from infinity to start “Alone Again Or.”
