Music for a Saturday morning

I don't know any other way to express how much I love Love -the emotion and the band.  Those of us who love this sixties band as we do could hold our annual convention in a very small meeting room at a Motel 6, and we'll leave the light on for you in case you want to join up.

Pfisterer, Forssi, Lee, Echols, and McLean
Here are the late Arthur Lee on guitar and vocals, along with the rest of the band: the late Johnny Echols (lead guitar, vocals), the late Bryan MacLean (guitar, vocals) and the late Ken Forssi (bass). The drummer was  Alban "Snoopy" Pfisterer, who is the only member of the original band still with us here on Earth.  Please check this song on You Tube; it's called "Alone Again Or" and remember, I have been advocating for this band since 1967, and even though they have mostly departed this vale of toil and tears (Arthur himself checked out in 2006 from leukemia), you know I am awfully persistent in these matters. Arthur Lee was a genius and even he couldn't figure out how to get more people to listen to his band, so how is a gozzlehead such as I going to do it?  Sheer persistence.

Please hear, so that more will listen.  Won't you help?
