Arthur Lee; wow is all I can say.  A musician I have found quite recently in the past months.  I had first heard him on the legendary "Forever Changes" album released by his band Love in 1967.  However, I had no idea who was in the band or what the band was.  All I knew is that they had some fantastic singers and some of the most unique and beautiful songwriting.  While listening I heard all these different voices but nevertheless when I finally looked up the singers for the band it was just one man.  Needless to say I was amazed, these voices I was hearing were sung with either an extremely sweet tenor or a thick and rhythmic baritone.  His singing conveys such an incredible amount of emotion that he propels every song that his band does into the stratosphere.  Pair this ability up with the fact that he is one of the best songwriters you will ever hear and you have, my friends, Arthur Lee.



Please do me a favor a take a listen to just thirty seconds of each of these clips and you will understand exactly what I meant when I said I thought there were a few different singers in the band.

Yes, isn't he the most versatile voice? He sang everything on that album besides "Orange Skies."

Way to take that completely out of context. I am not impressed that a black guy can sing well, but I am impressed that a black guy can sound like this:

Are the lows on the left channel in "Laughing Stock" Arthur, or are they shifted or something?

Honestly, I don't hear that as Arthur's voice but it could very well be. Maybe I should ask Johnny Echols?

Also, I was wrong about calling him a high baritone when I first made this thread.  To be honest, he doesn't ever really have any strong baritone moments.  I said he sounded like a lyric baritone at first just because of his singing on songs like "A House Is Not a Motel" but even that really isn't even hard to sing for the average tenor voice.  So if someone could please change the OP to "Low Tenor", "Dramatic Tenor", "Tenor" that would be nice.  Baritone is definitely a misleading description of this man's very light, agile voice.

edit: Oh, I can do this myself. Duhhh... i'll keep this post here just to prevent any confusion though.
