Editorial Reviews

Although four decades have past, Clarence White continues to be revered by fans and musicians alike. "Clarence White: White Lightnin' " is a collection of rare, mostly unreleased studio and live recordings, focusing on his electric guitar work though it contain some bluegrass guitar moments as well. Highlights include: Clarence's first commercial, major label appearance from the now classic album, "New Dimensions in Banjo and BluegrassWeissberg & Brickman" the never before released on CD, "No Title Yet Blues," featuring Clarence's brilliant lead and rhythm guitar. from 1967 recorded live at the Nashville West Club in El Monte CA, you will hear Clarence's other country band, a band few, if any, ever heard, let alone saw, "THE ROUSTABOUTS," performing "Buckaroo," "Tango for a Sad Mood" and "Tuff and Stringy" followed by a never before release studio recording of another version of "Tuff and Stringy," all featuring Clarence on electric guitar and a full country band with pedal steel, piano, drums, bass. from the Byrds era, more rare, there are unreleased studio tracks including a killer string bender instrumental, "Around the Barn", acoustic version of "Yesterday's Train" plus others including rare tracks with the Everly Bros., Joe Cocker, and Freddy Weller. Interspersed with these and other rare tracks on this CD is Clarence and his string bending Telecaster ripping off guitar licks as part of his home made practice/instruction tapes.

This Cd is a little different than I expected. I was expecting a little more guitar slinging however it gives you a great peek into the Clarence White studio guitarist. I really enjoyed the bluegrass cut and the stuff from Freddy Waller with Red Rhodes was good as well. There are demo sounding solo clips on this album that are Clarence trying out b-bender licks. These are cool but short and seem to be someone just picking around writing licks. I would recommend any fan of Clarence to by this cd but expect it to just be a fun listen.

This collection of electric guitar recordings by the late, great Clarence White is a "must have" purchase if you're a fan of late-era Byrds "folk rock" or of "country rock" (practically invented by White) or, more particularly, of the Parsons-White String-bender playing technique (literally invented by White). There are plenty of collections available of White's phenomenal work with the acoustic guitar, especially in the bluegrass genre, but it's harder to track down samples of White's electric guitar work as a session man. This collection includes hard to find examples of the latter (such as his fine work with the Everly Brothers on "I'm on My Way Home Again") and even includes an alternate take of "Yesterday's Train", from the sessions that resulted in the Byrds' "Untitled" album. By the way, if you don't have "Untitled", you should definitely get it when or before you buy "White Lightnin'" for classics like "Lover of the Bayou", "Nashville West", "Hungry Planet", and White's dynamite version of the Lowell George song "Truck Stop Girl". If you're already a White fan, buy both immediately! You can thank me later.

I would direct fans of Clarence's electric guitar playing to this CD; it's probably not for everyone, as it's a collection of outtakes, rehearsals, etc., so the audio is subpar at times. But it's an exciting insight into his playing in a variety of settings. There's a lot of his exceptional b-bender guitar, of course; but one of my favorites is his Tango For A Sad Mood, which is pre-bender and highlights the James Burton in his playing. It's also a lot of fun hearing him burn through Buckaroo. There are other CDs which showcase his acoustic playing, but for fans of his electric skills, this is a must have!

It's fun music featuring a great guitar player. "Cukoo Bird" great B bender licks. For me the only clunker is the title track. There's just no lightning in that simple little jam.
