Editorial Reviews

Former Kentucky Colonel, future Byrd, and a true guitar legend, Clarence White defined the country-rock guitar. He was later famous for the Stringbender in the Byrds, but the playing here, showcased on country/folk-rock sessions from 1966-68 (26 total tracks including super-rare singles, demos and his first recordings as a soloist), demonstrates Clarence's already unique style just prior to the Bender. Note also the inclusion of a recent, major find - previously unknown electrified demos by the Kentucky Colonels that are probably the earliest recordings extant of White playing electric guitar. Features Gary Paxton, The Spencers, Wayne Moore, Sanland Bros., Darrell Cotton, Jack Reeves, Dennis Payne, The Great Love Trip & others.

I've spent decades collecting Clarence's session work, and I've even managed to locate three or four of the LPs that contain the Bakersfield International work... but to hear these tracks sans dust and wear, in pristine fidelity- I'm in heaven! Hong Kong Hillbilly (Nashville West) clocks in at around two minutes but contains so much music that it seems hours long (and no, I haven't been smoking anything). Tango for a Sad Mood alone is worth the price of the Cd, and is quite simply one of the most beautiful guitar instrumentals I have ever heard. All of these tracks provide a rare glimpse of a genius at his day job, if you will.
The Forward from Michelle White Bledsoe is quite moving, and Alec Palao's liner notes beatifully evoke this transitional period. A long awaited treasure for this Byrdnyrd!

OK first off I'm biased- I helped with this CD on remastering and remixing some of the stuff that never saw the light of day- or was remixed in stereo, so I'm biased but , I must say I love it! I grew up watching the Kentucky Colonels on Sunday morning TV in LA!!
I mean -some of it isn't the best of Clarence White granted but, for most people who are just starting their Clarence White experience they will hear just how versatile he was and what was going on around him from 67 -72.
Even if you are a hard core Clarence fan this stuff is great! and I must say a lot of "love" and attention went into the remastering of these tracks when need be. Please don't be put off by this other review- and no I am not on the record company's (ACE) payroll-

I've listened to pretty much everything Clarence White recorded. He did a lot in his 29 years, and I find all of it interesting. This fascinating release reveals a transitional 2-year period in Clarence's career as a studio guitarist -- recordings that have been virtually unheard until now. To criticize "Tuff & Stringy" as a previous writer did is to miss the point entirely. These recordings will enlighten and entertain any Clarence fan except the terminally narrowminded. Considering that some of the tracks are informal studio demos and "idea sketches" from the mid-1960s, the technical quality is unexpectedly good. As for the music, it shouldn't be compared to the Byrds or the Kentucky Colonels. It's neither rock nor bluegrass. This CD fills a major gap, further documenting and demonstrating Clarence's broad musical interests and brilliance.
