Love – Forever Changes 50th Anniversary Edition box set

It is, without doubt, one of the great albums of the 1960s and if you want the definitive version, you want the Love – Forever Changes 50th Anniversary Edition box set.

This is everything you could hope for of the 1967 masterpiece and more. It is a 4CD/DVD/LP collection housed in a beautifully illustrated 12 x 12 hardbound book that features a newly written essay and track-by-track notes by music historian Ted Olsen.

The set features a few firsts for the album, including the CD-debut of a remastered version made by its original co-producer and engineer Bruce Botnick, as well as the first-ever release of the mono version on CD.

Also here are alternate mixes of the album, as well as a selection of rare and unreleased singles and studio outtakes. Botnick’s stereo remaster of the original album appears on vinyl for the first time too.

As for the DVD, that is a 24/96 stereo mix of the original album remastered by Botnick plus “Your Mind And We Belong Together”, a rare promotional video directed by Elektra producer Mark Abramson that was originally released in 1968.

The extensive track listing is below. If you want it, the box is available to pre-order ahead of the 6th April release date for what sounds like a reasonable £42.45.
