‘Because I Love You’ is from the album Choice Cuts, probably the Masters Apprentices best work. Recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London, Choice Cuts epitomised the progressive rock genre. Contains such gems as ‘Rio De Camero’, ‘Because I Love You’ and ‘Easy To Lie’. This album bridged the gap of the ’60’s band and brought the Masters into the new era of the ’70’s. No other Australian band from the ’60’s made the transition and Choice Cuts is testament to the Masters’ endurance and credibility.
The choice of the first single was, “Because I Love You”, a beautiful song of love, separation and independence, and became a popular and enduring recording. To promote it, they used Australian film-maker Timothy Fisher to make a music video. The simple but effective clip was filmed on a chilly autumn morning on Hampstead Heath. Black-and-white prints were shown many times on Australian TV, where colour was not introduced until 1975, but it was shot in colour, as were several other clips for tracks from the LP, most were not screened.
