A rather brief biography of Arthur Lee one of the most enigmatic musicians of the 60's. The author does well to bring to life the turbulent history of one the most underrated bands of the era in the small amount of space the book offers.

That said, it felt at times that I was reading an extended article in magazine rather than a monograph.
Arthur Lee enigma, to say the least, and Barney Hoskyns is one of the few rock writers worth a damn. A fascinating look at a fascinating musician. The sign of a great book: I wish this was much longer as I wanted to keep reading. Maybe one day BH will expand this into a full length (this is only 100 something pages.)
Beautiful, sad. The best book Im aware of about the incomparable Arthur Lee. The story of the true Love years is riveting. Like many of the best rock books, this one is written by an Englishman.

I bit too short and insubstantial. I would have preferred something a bit meatier.
Sketchy, flimsy & insubstantial, more of a booklet.
Nice history of Arthur Lee. For lovers only.
