Spanning the majority of their releases but largely focused on their Contagion album, Live & Life was recorded during their Contagion Tour and consists of a mix of audio from numerous shows rather than one single concert.
Love Will Make a Better You, the only album credited to Love Live Life + One, is a perfect exemplar of the Japanese psych super-session scene. The most successful album by impresario Ikuzo Orita (responsible for Foodbrain and Shiniki Chen), the disc paired a nimble crew of improv freaks (like guitarist Kimio Mizutani) with mainstream pop star Akira Fuse and his band, along with a songbook by saxophonist Kei Ichihara. The resultant album is rich in Sly Stone-influenced funk and wild guitar solos from Mizutani and Takao Naoi. Though Fuse wasn't the only mainstream star to dabble in the avant-garde - normally he covered the Carpenters and other lite American fare - his star presence insured that the album never flew too far into self-indulgence…

The movie starts with an interview with director Claude Lelouch. He pleads viewers not to disclose the plot of the movie after leaving the projection room. Even the movie's trailer shows only a long sequence of faces gazing speechlessly in space. "Like all my movies, this one is about a man and a woman", says Lelouch in the interview.
