Another one of my very favorite bands from the '60's - Arthur Lee and Love. Considered by many to be the original "proto-punk" band, and a flash of things to come in the middle '70's. However, their 3rd album, Forever Changes is a musical masterpiece, but never quite got the respect of the music critics at the time. Now, Forever Changes is consistently ranked as one of the Top 10 musically and socially significant albums from the 1960's.
Here we have Arthur Lee as guest vocalist, with The Fuzztones, doing one of the two top 10 songs Love ever had - the classic 7 and 7 Is. It was filmed at the Coconut Teaser Club in L.A., in 1990. Jahluv should like this......
You're totally right mate, hadn't thought of him/them for thirty bloody years . . . too far in front of the times now that you mention it, huge ! Lovely lines on the frame too, clean as a very clean thing.
Now ain't that the truth Rich!
Forever Changes Forever!

Nice one Rich - It looks like the Fuzztones were trying to get into the Paisley Underground movement that was popular in LA at the time. A few groups that were born out of the 80's mod revival went in this direction - there were a lot of Beatle Boots, pegged pants and swirly shirts being worn then. I was still in the Marines, I only got to see it on the weekends!
One of my favorite records ever.
