Arthur Lee, 1945-2006




The Love frontman died yesterday in Memphis, the result of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. More via Pitchfork.

A sampling of Arthur Lee & Love:
"Everybody's Gotta Live" (MP3)
"A House Is Not a Motel" (MP3)
"You Set the Scene" (MP3) (courtesy last sound of summer)

His solo album "Vindicator" was one king hell album.
Of the finest.

Arthur Lee was brilliant--a genius, extraordinarily gifted, clever, funny, a writer of joyous music. He's always deserved more recognition. Thank God he finally got some before he died.
