First published in 1992, Helen Fisher's Anatomy of Love quickly became a classic. Since then, Fisher has conducted pioneering brain research on lust, romantic love, and attachment; gathered data on more than 80,000 people to explain why you love who you love; and collected information on more than 30,000 men and women on sexting, hooking up, friends with benefits, and other current trends in courtship and marriage.
The Fontana Years is four discs – 1990's The House of Love (the "butterfly" album) and A Spy in the House of Love, 1992's Babe Rainbow, and 1994's Audience With the Mind – whittled down to two, with some spare B-sides sprinkled around. Quite possibly slapped together as a reaction to the reignited Rev-Ola label – the source of 2003/2004-released compilations from several of the House of Love's old Creation label mates, such as the Jasmine Minks, the Weather Prophets, and Biff Bang Pow! – its only saving grace is the single-disc price. Though the years covered here weren't the House of Love's best, they are deserving of better treatment, especially since some key album cuts ("Hannah," "Feel") are left out of the mix, and there isn't enough room for all of the B-sides. One thing that every prospective purchaser in the U.S. should consider: the four discs that this set draws from can be swooped up in one shot at your average used shop for roughly the same cost; you can find any one of them for a couple bucks apiece.
