Just recently getting into Gene Clark's impressive body of solo work, I started with White Light and (after only one listen) was initially unimpressed. To tell the truth, I can't think of a Gene Clark album that actually wowed me on the first listen. After a few spins though, White Light found its way permanently under my skin as a fantastic exercise in poetry, delivery, and the possibilities of folk-rock production (it's got some pretty gnarly yet subtle electric guitar). Gene's songs are instantly understandable and accessible, but only to a point--eventually there's a final barrier of mystery in the words and in the sentiment, and that's what keeps me coming back to his music. It's wonderful to puzzle over just what he means and feels, and it's a hallmark of great songwriting when a song doesn't mean just one obvious thing and it's up to the listener to interpret. So, White Light is a fantastic (if commercially unsuccessful) record--enter No Other.

With No Other, Gene fleshed out his songs with lavish ensemble production (check out the bonus tracks for more stripped-down versions), including several female background singers, multiple guitars and keyboards, and some surprisingly different (for Clark) effects. With all due respect to some of the other reviewers, "country-rock" is a pathetically inadequate attempt to describe the sound of this record. No Other has its country-rock moments, but the entire album is so far-ranging that any attempt to classify it wastes words and detracts from enjoyment--I'd rather let the genre-bending sounds just wash over me.

When The Byrds reunited for Asylum Records there was the hope that the original quintet would recapture the magic they generated with their first couple of albums. It didn't happen. While The Byrds (which is still out of print)suffered from an overabundance of ambition, production and egos, Clark's solo effort for Asylum had all the ambition and production of the previusly mentioned album but with the inspiration necessary to pull it off.
This is Clark's most "produced" effort. For that very reason, there are some Byrds and Clark fans that can't stand it. Looking past the ambitious production, the songs are what really matter. At its core, No Other features some of Clark's most sublime material. Many folks have compared it to Van Morrison's Astral Weeks but I'd venture to compare it to Lennon's Imagine. The heartache, pure emotion and powerful performances at the core of the album benefit from the production.
Rhino has done a terrific job of remastering the album. While I can't detect a huge sonic difference between this and the fine Collector's Choice edition, it does benefit from the inclusion of alternate versions and a bonus track not available on a legit CD before.
Gene Clark was always the most vunerable of The Byrds. That was reflected in his powerful, emotional songs as much as his emotionally naked vocals. It's about time that this great album got the deluxe treatment it deserves. Certainly if you're a Byrds/Clark fan pick this up. Even if you're not, it's well worth purchasing. Like Neil Young's wounded On the Beach, No Other is a classic album that stands outside of its time but was also made at the wrong time. Perhaps it'll finally get some appreciation.

I bought this record when it came out in 1974 because that was my summer of full immersion in Southern California country rock.Having been a Byrds fan, and because the record was released on Asylum records I guess I expected something different from what I heard when I played the thing. Well I don't rember disliking it, but it never got heavy rotation on the turntable, and somewhere down the line it kinda disappeared from my collection.Over the years fans and revisionist reviewers started gushing over this great "lost" work of art, comparing it to Van Morrison's "Astral Weeks' (um...no.)or Skip Spence's Oar (only in the sense that neither sold, cuz Oar is awful). So when 'No Other' finally got it's CD release, amidst glowing reviews, I had to check it out again. Well folks what we have here is a little masterpiece of SoCal country rock with gorgeous singing and playing and I can't remember why I didn't love it thirty years ago. The reason it didn't sell is because most people didn't know who Gene Clark was, not because of some kind of weirdness in the music.Neil Young sold tons of records that were far stranger and less accessible than anything on here.Promotion might have done the trick, but there was none, so it sank without a trace. Here thirty years later, and too late for the sadly deceased Gene Clark, is another chance for country rock fans to hear a work of great emotion and heartbreak that should have been a contender. It's, I repeat, a great ,great country rock recording, by a very talented singer songwriter, and that's all. And that's enough.

As a Gene Clark fan from the Byrds period, the "Gene Clark and the Gosdins" album failed to live up to my expectations at the time: I missed the jangly 12 string Rickenbacker and the more rock driven sensibility behind the classic "Feel a Whole Lot Better." I found it way too demanding then to reappraise the artist within a solo context and turned my listening attention instead toward "Younger than Yesterday."

By 1972 I was ready to try again when I purchased the "Gene Clark Collector Series: Early L.A. Sessions." I was feeling nostalgic for the era, a feeling exacerbated by the release of Lenny Kaye's "Nuggets." Still rather put off by the laid back country material, I discovered vestiges of that brooding poetic genius in songs such as "The Same One" and "I Found You." That record stayed in my collection until, by 1991, I bought the "Echoes" CD. The acoustic version of "So You Say You Lost Your Baby" really impressed me. This, along with the studio version of the tune, with its awesome string arrangement by Leon Russell, enhanced my burgeoning reaffirmation of the man, his music and legacy.

Finally, I happened to come across a copy of "No Other" listed as a reissue of his long lost masterpiece. Upon first hearing the record, I felt a sense of closure in such songs as "Strength of Strings" and "No Other." What he alluded to in his scatter blot imagery of "So You Say You Lost Your Baby," a musical tale told in a little over two minutes, now seemed reconfigured into a definitive musical statement.

The eight songs for me represent a kind of interlocking tone poem. Each song, like the "notes that roll on winds/with swirling wings," segues into the next as naturally as our moods change according to circumstance.

Gene Clark's ( No Other)
I recently purchased this one; I love it. For some reason I agree with your point about it being a difficult listen, but at the same time it is achingly good. I'm sure some would instantly flinch and erect a wall when listening, as a result of that good ol' country tinge- which, I might add, I... Read More
