LoveForever Changes: Collector's Edition (Elektra/Rhino)
Psychedelia '67's great singer-songwriter record gets Elektra/Rhino's Fun House treatment in two discs, the alternate LP mix stripping production most notably in the vocals (Bryan MacLean's tremulous "Old Man"). Thirty minutes of obsessionography restores wondrous outtake "Wonder People (I Do Wonder)," edits together the evolution of guitar lobotomy "Your Mind and We Belong Together," and bonuses a ferocious backing track to "A House Is Not a Motel." Nonessential, but as Loverman Arthur Lee notes, "Who can explain the mind of the world?"
