In 1974, Gene Clark released his fourth solo album, No Other, a masterpiece unfortunately and bizarrely labeled a failure. 4AD’s deluxe reissue does much to correct that misconception, and offers a lavish and definitive look at one of the decade’s truly lost classics.
A haunting and thought-provoking antiwar message.
Two recently released collections document what former Byrds guitarist Gene Clark was doing immediately after leaving the band. One collection finds him sorting out ideas on tape, the other highlights his willingness to work with a young group. While these recordings are rough and probably more for the devoted Byrds fans, they do provide an interesting look into an artist’s creative process.
In the mid-1970s, former Byrds guitarist Chris Hillman recorded a pair of albums for Asylum Records, his first proper solo releases. Though they’ve always been low key in his vast discography of work over the past 50 years, this reissue shows that their obscurity is not for lack of quality material.
