Love: Signed Arthur Lee
Giovanni Dadomo, ZigZag, July 1974
ARTHUR'S NOTHING like you'd expect him to be. No trace of the leather jacketed refugee from Blackboard Jungle high school punkery who lurks under that peculiar edifice on those early album sleeves (it was Bela Lugosi's fireplace incidentally), no dope-spattered muttering — he's COOL. He sprawls on his seat and talks in a rich Memphis drawl punctuated with great hooting belly laughs (hereafter described as HAHAHAR!). No, he doesn't care where we start: "Anywhere you like man, we're gonna end up at the same place anyway HAHAHAR!"
