The Love documentary Love Story is at last coming to DVD in the UK.
Love Story charts the life and times of ’60s psychedelic warrior Arthur Lee and his Los Angeles band Love. The film features extensive interviews with Lee (his last ever), plus band members Johnny Echols, Michael Stuart, Alban ‘Snoopy’ Pfisterer, Bryan Maclean, Elektra Records boss Jac Holzman, The Doors’ John Densmore, producer Bruce Botnick, as well as testimonials from fans Bobby Gillespie, Mani, John and Mick Head (Shack), and (surprisingly enough) London Mayor Ken Livingstone.
The film was premiered on both sides of the Atlantic last year but is not to be on general release in cinemas. Instead it will be available on DVD in June. Check the usual retail outlets closer to the time for price details. In the meantime unedited parts of some of the film interviews are available to watch on the Love Story Myspace page here.
