Maine music history was made in Portland on Sunday, July 9, 2006 as the original members of Love, Inc. reunited for the first time in over 35 years for a private, invitation only performance for family and friends at the former DV8 Club. This was a spur-of-the-moment performance suggested by Billy...who came home to visit family...and was the first truly public performance by all four original band members since February 1971.
Songs performed included many from the early days by The Beatles...Rolling Stones...Cream...Wilson Pickett...Blues Project...and other popular groups of the 1960s and early 1970s. The Boys also performed three of their original songs, including their most successful single, "She Don't Care About Me" which reached #10 on the Maine music charts in the summer of 1969. This song had not been performed in public since November 1969. Other originals performed included "Loving You", written by Billy and Mark, the B Side of our second single "Jennifer" released in September 1970, and Mark's very first song ever written for Love, Inc. "Leave Me Alone in the Morning" in July 1968. Amazingly the three part harmony which was recorded beautifully on their CD was almost note-perfect. "Like riding a bicycle" Marc said...proving you CAN go home again! A truly amazing performance considering we had no rehearsals! It was like just picking up from where we left off.
Joining them was their lifelong friend and fellow musician Peter Albert, is was a member of the Rain/Get Back Band.
A Press Release about the Reunion was issued.
After the one-off they started writing new songs and actually began recording them. It was decided to change the name to BOTHN (Brothers Of The Holy Note) to update the original name to something a bit more modern. Mike started building Swell Studios and Marc continued recording his Coral Sunset CD. Both projects are pretty much complete and Marc has done some work on his CD at Swell. Whether or not the boys pick up and continue recording remains to be seen.
L to R: Mike...Bill...Marc and Mark, July 9, 2006. Together once again after 35 years!
The Reunion was well documented with over 100 photos taken. Most of them are included here.
