Various ‎"Forever Changing  A Tribute To Love’s Forever Changes"The Active Listener ‎label  Compilation  2014 Psych Rock


To celebrate the second birthday of the Active Listener website, I asked a stack of my favourite artists to take a crack at recording their favourite songs from Love's "Forever Changes" (and a few other contemporary Love tracks).
"Forever Changes" has long been a favourite of mine - if you don't have a copy you should go and buy one pronto! Hopefully "Forever Changing" will encourage you to do so...
Thanks to everyone who's taken the time to record a track for this, to Martin Butler for the sleeve art, and to everyone who's read the Active Listener over the last two years.

The Active Listener has just posted an excellent 17-number compilation tribute to Forever Changes, the heralded album by Sixties flower power heroes Love. Below are our favorites from a most redolent bouquet. Forever Changing is available as a free download for a limited time, so take a whiff and act accordingly........

The start of November sees the Active Listener reach the ripe old age of two, and to celebrate I'm putting together a tribute to Love's "Forever Changes".
"Forever Changing" will be available as a free download through the Active Listener's Bandcamp page.
Basically any track from the original album is up for grabs, as well as both sides of their 1968 single.
I put some feelers out through the Active Listener's Facebook page yesterday and had an overwhelmingly positive response both from people who want to be involved, and from readers who are keen to hear the results - some quality acts are already confirmed, but I still welcome more artists to feature......
