One of the better-remembered psychedelic one-shots of the '60s, Clear Light recorded one album on Elektra before splitting up. Their California psychedelia was very much in the mold of fellow Elektra artists Love, Tim Buckley, and especially the Doors, which is hardly a coincidence; like all of these artists, Clear Light worked with producer Paul Rothchild and engineer Bruce Botnick. Several of the members went on to notable careers: Douglas Lubahn played bass on several Doors albums, Dallas Taylor drummed for Crosby, Stills, & Nash, keyboardist Ralph Schuckett became a prolific session musician, and Cliff De Young became a prolific TV movie actor. ~ Richie Unterberger
