Love’s ‘Forever Changes’ 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Out Now
FOREVER CHANGES is the Love’s finest achievement. In 2008, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, and – in 2012 – the Library of Congress added it to the National Recording Registry. This golden anniversary 4CD/DVD/LP collection is packed with various mixes of the original album, rare and unreleased tracks, plus a 1968 promo video, all housed in a beautifully illustrated 12 x 12 hardbound book that features a newly written essay and track-by-track notes bymusic historian Ted Olson.
The set features a few firsts for the album, including the CD-debut of a remastered version made by its original co-producer and engineer Bruce Botnick, as well as the first-ever release of the mono version on CD. Botnick’s stereo remaster of the original album also makes its vinyl debut on the LP included with this set. The DVD that accompanies the anniversary collection includes a 24/96 stereo mix of the album version of the original album remastered by Botnick.
FOREVER CHANGES: 50th ANNIVERSARY EDITION boasts more than a dozen rarities, including single versions of “Alone Again Or” and “A House Is Not A Motel” that are available now for the first time since 1967. Two other recordings on the set have never been released: the backing track for “Live And Let Live” and an outtake backing track for “Wonder People (I Do Wonder).”
