Editorial Reviews

Ex-Byrds guy and country-rock pioneer in his own right, Gene Clark made a handful of genius-laden solo albums in his lifetime, and this, his first post-Byrds outing, is surely one of them. This gorgeous Sundazed reissue features a swag of bonus tracks and a detailed booklet.

When in 1972 I paid 40 pence for a second hand copy of the original (and even then long deleted) album, I remember being a little disappointed. The music seemed dated by the standards of Gene's earlier work with The Byrds and certainly did not appear to bear any comparison with their contemporaneous masterpiece 'Younger Than Yesterday'. Since then it has been re-released in different guises, six times! During the early 70's it appeared in a re-recorded form as 'Early LA' - this version had one of the best songs 'Elevator Operator', inexplicably removed. Edsel/Demon gave the original album a UK release in 1988 and then followed this up some years later with an edition that was superior for its extensive information - including a rather touching letter from a female fan to a British pop music magazine. Whilst all this was going on Sony released 'Echoes' probably to compensate for the fact that (the by now late)Gene Clark had been under represented on The Byrds Box Set of 1990. Finally, just in case anyone thought that this music was still being neglected , Sony then released the original version of the album with a single bonus track. And now we have with this latest release on Sundazed, the best of all possible worlds. Bob Irwin's work on the original tapes yields stunning results. The packaging is certainly well up to the standards of the second Edsel release although Gene's poem which had featured so prominently on the back of the original cover has not been included. And as for the music - well to my ears now it sounds much fresher and more exciting than it did when I was an angst ridden student all those years ago - but then that's in the nature of musical appreciation.....isn't it?

It wasn't immediately apparent to me that it is a big sonic upgrade over the "Echoes" CD, but no matter. This is an excellent album from the ex-Byrd and is essential for fans of the group or of Gene's later solo masterpieces such as "White Light," "Roadmaster," and "No Other." The liner notes and booklet layout are also better and more informative than was "Echoes."

Format: Audio CD
This disc is so full of open references to Beatle guitar licks that it may
be appreciated as a kind of homage (check out "I Found You," which
is a sort of "Taxman Pt 2."), but Clark's voice, lyrical style, and nascent country rock
distinguish this. The character of the performances is a bit dry, efficient and understated,
in the manner of a band of 60s studio musicians, and the actual Beatles could give these guys a lesson in guitar tone.
But occasionally they do swing, somewhat like the Lovin' Spoonful.
The string-assisted tracks, "Echoes," and "So You Say You Lost Your Baby" are actually highlights.
My affection for this record probably isn't rational, as I find that some of its
goofy, 1966 production values magnify its charm. Tougher to argue with:
Clark has one of the best rock voices of this period, soulful and
country without cant or melodrama. It's hard for someone with such a "pretty" timbre and
perfect pitch to still sound like a rock'n'roll singer--he does: a unique one.
And several of Clark's songs are simply Dylan or Lennon quality, esp.:
"Think I'm Gonna Feel Better" (which does have beautiful guitar sounds)
and "So You Say you Lost Your Baby." Highly recommended for
fans of "Beatles for Sale," the Byrds or the Spoonful.

Format: Audio CD
After Gene Clark flew the nest from The Byrds, he took 10 months to return to the studio. In the 1960's that was a lifetime (most bands and solo artists released an average of two albums a year)but he returned with a brilliant first solo album that helped to define the infant country-rock movement. Ironically, Clark's album helped create a genre that other bands got credit for. Most of these tracks were available on the CD anthology "Echoes" which featured this album plus previously unreleased singles and five tracks from "Preflyte" and the first two Byrds albums on Columbia but many of them were remixed.

Featuring the rhythm section from The Byrds (Chris Hillman on bass and Michael Clarke on a number of tracks playing drums)and orchestral arrangements by Leon Russell, Clark's album is an eclectic mix of pop songs/country-rock style music. Showing a heavy influence of Clark's roots in folk, country and rock (and his main obsession Dylan & The Beatles), the country duo of the Gosdin brothers add their distinctive harmonies to every track. In fact, if you wonder what The Byrds had been like if McGuinn and Crosby had left the band and Clark had remained, this is a pretty good indication. Future Byrd Clarence White appears on guitar here as well (and was briefly a member of Gene Clark and The Group along with "Chip" Douglas and others)and while "Echoes" is probably the most unusual track here (hinting at his solo album "No Other").

The liner notes provide us with an insightful critique by Byrds and Clark biographer John Einarson (who recently also wrote the definitive book on the Flying Burrito Brothers HOT BURRITO)with comments by the participants. The mastering by Bob Irwin (who ironically produced the "Echoes" anthology)is terrific--it's not too loud or compressed.
