iTunes Editors’ Notes

Though he is far from the most famous member of the Byrds — Roger Mcguinn, David Crosby, and of course Gram Parsons all cut more distinctive public profiles — Gene Clark’s startlingly beautiful melodic instincts and unerring songwriting skills provided the backbone to many of the Byrds’ most memorable songs. Gene Clark’s first solo effort, Gene Clark With the Gosdin Brothers, features some of the most authentic efforts at fusing country with rock ‘n’ roll ever to grace a vinyl record. Though it was largely overlooked upon its release, fans of Gram Parsons, and mid-period Stones will find themselves instinctively drawn to Clark’s elegant, country-tinged compositions. The fantastic “Tried So Hard”, with its cascading guitars and multi-layered country harmonies is the set’s centerpiece, but nearly every song here is a gem worthy of admiration. Country rock fanatics would do well to familiarize themselves with Clark’s work, as his groundbreaking albums would have a significant influence on the development of the genre.

Customer Reviews

Gene clark

Gene clark was a musical genius and very handsome. His songs are from his soul and are classics.

Baroque Pop at it’s best!

With the songs he had written and recorded with The Byrds, Gene Clark should have had a much more stellar solo career than he did. Unfortunately, because of personal struggles, lack of direction and little or no management, his solo career did not take off as it should have. Had this album been properly promoted and not released at the same time as his former band’s album, it might have achieved the success it deserved and would have been regarded as highly as perhaps Highway 61 Revisited. If you like Dylan, The Beatles and The Byrds, then this album is for you. It’s pop poetry, country rock and baroque ballads all rolled into one that’ll keep you interested and finding little tidbits for many years to come.

Gene Clark will always be best remembered for his two-year stint as a vocalist with the Byrds between 1964 and 1966. A fine legacy to be sure, but the shame of it is that there was far more to Clark's body of work than that; he was a superb songwriter, one of the founding fathers of country-rock, and recorded a number of fine...
