Synopsis

Album Description
The 1968 debut, originally released on A&M, from one of the first and finest L.A. country-rock outfits. Comprised of Gene Clark, hot on the heels of his departure from the Byrds and his debut solo release (with the Gosdin Bros.), and Doug Dillard, the virtuosic banjoist/guitarist of the Dillards. Gene Clark is perhaps the most underrated songwriter of the 1960s and this could very well be his finest post-Byrds moment. Featuring help from fellow Byrd Chris Hillman, future Burrito Brother 'Sneaky' Pete Kleinow, and future Burrito/Eagle Bernie Leadon, this is an absolutely essential piece of L.A. country-rock history, not to mention an out and out masterpiece.

"My vinyl record wore out, then the CD, and now have to buy it again. One of those albums that is necessary in any collection, and is actually listened to periodically with the same mix of joy, sadness, and sing-a-long as the first time i ever listened. (its like readers pay the short story writer Saki the ultimate compliment... they buy his books and read them...) I am mostly a rock n roller, but this cross over, if it could be pigeonholed, is a must have. Can't wait til it gets here in the mail and I can let Laura listen...."
This Album Invents Country Rock
AudioObscurica | United States | 04/13/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's not surprising this album didn't sell, after all, do any albums worth owning break any sales records? The answer? No. Of the 9 songs there is not one bad one. It's bluegrass,country,folk,gospel and even almost soul (see the opening track "Out on the Side"), sometimes all at the same time. Without an album like this country nor rock would have come this far. Maybe one day it will be discovered by a mass audience and have the 'comeback' it never had. A real gem."

"I can't add that much to the accolades below - this genre defying work of art is truly one of the great albums of all time. But be aware that the bonus tracks on this import version (12 tracks rather than 9) are some of the best, and add significantly to the irresistable pleasure of hearing this again and again."
