iTunes Editors’ Notes

Also known as simply "Gene Clark," White Light is a classic country-influenced singer/songwriter album from the early '70s. Clark's songwriting is peerless, and his vocals ache with a sincerity that brings out the heartbreak in the Clark/Jesse Ed Davis song "With Tomorrow." The band is impeccable, with Flying Burrito Brother Chris Ethridge on bass, Mike Utley on organ, producer Jesse Ed Davis on guitar, and the Steve Miller Band's Ben Sidran on piano and Gary Mallaber on drums. Though the album was sinfully ignored commercially upon its release, it's remained a critical favorite. The pathos of "Because of You" and the glorious organ-acoustic guitar interplay of "One in a Hundred" are further sparked by Clark's angelic voice. "For a Spanish Guitar," with acoustic guitar and harmonica, is wrapped in a forlorn melody that spreads across the evening sky. Clark's take on Bob Dylan's "Tears of Rage" evokes the darkness of The Band's legendary version. This edition of the album features an alternate mix of "Because of You," three previously unreleased tunes, and the rare country-rock track "Winter In."

Customer Reviews

Give this man his due

Gene Clark's songs are arresting, dense, ands soulful, with every listen revealing a new insight. This is his first solo album from the 1970s I have bought, and I know it is the type of album I can listen to over and over again through the years. His songs are tasteful. He goes for pathos but is never pitiful. His lyrics are full of poetic imagery. His melodies are beautiful and unique. There are never unnecessary instrumental embellishments, the songs do not need it as they stand strong enough as they are. To me, he sounds like no one else. He is an original. When he covers a song, I never get the sense it is out of any sense of being commercial or wanting to get a hit. It is because the song holds personal meaning and power to him, which is reflected deeply in his own songwriting. Really, words cannot do the man justice. Is this the album for everyone? Obviously not. This album shows Clark's growth as a songwriter and person from his days as a Byrd, and ranks to my ears as good as anything in that genre or any of its offshoots. Anyways, it is simply beautiful.

Great Album

Just like the title great album, somehow the Eagles took everything of some many great bands as Poco, The Flying Burrito Brothers, etc.... anything by Gene Clark is gold... you won't be desapointed it... get it...

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...
