Beyond his achievements as a founding member of the Byrds, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Gene Clark was truly one of the most prolific singer/songwriters of the rock era. This album introduces previously unreleased studio sessions from Clark's pre-Byrds days in 1964 with studio recordings from 1967-70 that feature Hugh Masekela on horns and arrangements by Leon Russell. The set also Includes tracks with the Flying Burrito Brothers with one that features Gram Parsons, Chris Hillman and Bernie Leadon from 1970. The last five tracks feature his 1982 reunion with former bandmates, Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke as the early Byrds band, "Nyteflyte". Since his passing in 1991, many of Gene Clark's home demo recordings and various live tracks have been released. Actual studio sessions were rare, and existence was more rumor until this release. These 24 "lost" recordings are presented here with the best possible sound quality mastered from the original analog monaural, stereo and multi-track tapes. This is an essentially an alternate history of Gene Clark's most productive years as a songwriter.

Press Quotes

I think it's fair to say that the release of this album might be proof for Gene Clark fans that Santa really exists.

     —Paul Kerr, Wordpress

this incredible collection of songs, all fully fledged studio recordings, no demos or alternative takes, which takes us from a fresh voiced 19 year old Clark straight out of The New Christy Minstrels through to a reunion with fellow ex-Byrds Michael Clark

     —Paul Kerr, Wordpress

Clark is pure of voice and heavy on emotion.

     —The Audiophile Man

These incredible recordings, which have never been released commercially, (prior to original release by Sierra), are from the original analog master studio recording sessions held in Los Angeles between 1964 and 1982

     —Perlich Post

At its best, it is transcendent - a chalky, coal-coloured outline of deep, dark American things.

     —Alex Abramovich, London Review Of Books
