A virtually perfect copy of a classic rock/psych LP and one that will likely be your final upgrade.
Background: Released in 1968, I Love You was the first album by People.
The album did not chart, but the title track, a cover of a song by the Zombies, reached #14 on the U.S. singles chart. Band member Larry Norman went on to become a pivotal figure in the Christian rock movement.
The title track’s cover of Zombies member Chris White’s fabulous song “I Love You” went Top 15 in the spring and summer of 1968. The anomaly that drifts in from seemingly out of nowhere, this causes one to wonder why bands who have success with someone else’s music do not try reinventing other tunes. …People needed to craft an album of songs as beautifully arranged and performed as the title track here, and they failed to do so. Thirteen minutes and 25 seconds of “The Epic” is all that is on side two, and it is a major-league rip-off. At least Iron Butterfly made their signature song, “In a Gadda Da Vida,” interesting by dragging it across most of an LP side, and an extended “I Love You” would have made this album a classic. … The hit single is so perfect, so stunning, they really should have spread it across both sides of this Capitol record.
