A&M Records Spotlight: Arthur Lee - Everybody's Gotta Live

Another day, another record. Here we are again with more from the LA based A&M Records. The record we have today is none other than Arthur Lee's Everybody's Gotta Live. Arthur Lee, it should be known by any and all record collectors, fronted the bitchin' group, Love. But when Love devolved into a carousel of support musicians and failed to make hit records, Arthur Lee found himself without a label as the 1970s began. In stepped A&M Records. Everybody's Gotta Live dates to 1972 and was the first single from Lee's first solo album, Vindicator. This is one of those songs that sounds timeless. It could have been the 60s, it could be current. Just a nice simple chord progression with a tasteful band performance. No gimmicks. Arthur Lee's voice is as beautiful as it ever was.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side.
