"Black Beauty, the never–before–released masterpiece by Arthur Lee’s legendary band Love! Chosen as one of Time Magazine’s most anticipated releases, critics are hailing the album as an instant classic. Black Beauty is that rarest of rock artifacts: an un–released, full–length studio album, from an undisputed musical genius. It represents the missing link in a catalog that also includes "Forever Changes, " the seminal 1967 Love album the New York Times called "one of the most affecting and beguiling albums of all time." With "Black Beauty", Arthur Lee manages to combine searing ’70’s rock with gorgeous melodies and stellar songwriting – topped off by his most distinctive, snarling, soulful vocals ever. With unparalleled sound, state–of–the–art packaging, and a wonderfully eclectic collection of songs, the album offers Love fans a rare glimpse into a previously undocumented phase of Arthur Lee’s career, while shining a light for new fans to discover the unique genius that is the music of Arthur Lee and Love. David Fricke wrote about the album in Rolling Stone: "Black Beauty might have been received as a strong comeback for Lee, a turn to steamy R & B, with heavy–guitar punch – if it had come out." High Moon Records is honored to finally grant Arthur Lee’s wish for Black Beauty to be available to music fans worldwide. With its wonderfully eclectic collection of songs, the album offers Love fans a rare glimpse into a previously–undocumented phase of Arthur Lee’s fabled career, while shining a light for new fans to discover the unique genius that is the music of Arthur Lee and Love.

Black Beauty is also available as a TrueSound Audiophile CD packaged in a hardbound eco–book. The deluxe CD comes with a 64–page photo–filled booklet.

Both formats come with bonus tracks featuring explosive live performances, two unreleased Arthur Lee studio cuts and an unearthed Arthur Lee interview from 1974.
