“Love Changes – The Anthology, 1972-83,” a first-of-its-kind 2-CD set by Mother’s Finest, considered the premier black rock-and-soul band of the ‘70s and ‘80s.

For starters, the average track length is even greater, with four of the six jams clocking in at over 12 minutes. That makes it easy to get lost in the grooves as the musicians ride and work them over.
In May 1970 Twenty Sixty Six And Then met first time and decided to found a band. Day and Night rehearsed and filed on their sound in their residence in Mannheim. Another journalist at that time: “Dominating in their music is a dynamic, which is regulatoring the developing harmonies in the complex structured arrangements. When the musicians sometimes get lost in old hardrock stereotypes (mark of red.: It would be fascinating what were “old hardrock stereotypes” in 1972!), they kept enough distance to the sounds, to prove their intents with detailed inserted alienation". In a short way: the rediscovery of a krautrock original from the „Mannheim“-rockscene in the early 70ties…
