‘Whispering’ Bob Harris is one of the most iconic voices in British rock broadcasting, with an incredible career over four decades including ‘Sounds of the Seventies’, ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ and his current home at ‘Bob Harris Country’ on BBC Radio 2. Today he joins host Jeremy Dylan to reveal why Love’s seminal 1967 album ‘Forever Changes’ is his favorite of all time.
How did the legendary John Peel introduce Bob to the album? Why did Arthur Lee elude Bob as an interview subject for decades? How did confronting lyrical content of the album make it stand out from the other records of the Summer of Love? Was 1967 the greatest ever year for pop music? Was Love really a band or was it all about frontman Arthur Lee? And what does Lee have in common with modern country superstar Kacey Musgraves?
