Good out-takes selection from Gene
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 01/09/2009 10:19:12
A very enjoyable CD consisting of out-takes from various recording sessions that Clarke did from 1970-72. Usually this sort of thing makes me think "...and there's a good reason why they were not released at the time", but this isn't the case with this album.
Originally released in Holland in 1973 the first two tracks "She's The Kind Of Girl" & "One In A Hundred" are from a cancelled Byrds single (their parts were recorded separately though). Next up is "Here Tonight" which he did with The Flying Burrito Brothers just after Gram Parsons left. Due to appear on their 3rd LP it didn't make the final tracklisting.
The remainder of the songs are from the aborted sessions that were meant to produce his follow up to the "White Light" album. Two notable tracks from this selection are a reworking of "She Don't Care About Time" and the original version of "Full Circle Song" which appeared on The Byrds reunion album shortly after. When these recording dates didn't work out he moved on to Asylum Records where he began work on the "No Other" LP.
I remember seeing this reviewed in 'Record Collector' magazine back in 1986 and thought to myself "I must get that sometime". 23 years later (!) I've finally got around to it and was amazed it's still on catalogue after all this time. One small gripe is that part of the CD insert is a bit 'fuzzy' as if Edsel have photographed the LP version and shrunk it down to CD size (one star deducted for that reason). Otherwise, if you like Byrds/Gene Clark material, a 'must have' for your collection.
