GREAT LAST SOLO CD BY BYRD FOUNDER GENE CLARK
S. F Gulvezan | Grosse Pointe Woods, Michigan USA | 03/19/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Originally released in 1984, this was the last solo outing of the legendary Byrds co-founder Gene Clark. True to form, he once again displays his singular songwriting talents and his unmatchable vocal abilities on this CD. Also included are three bonus tracks, two of which, "All I Want" and "C'est La Bonne Rue," are as good as anything on the original release. Highly recommended."
Not for completists only
Christoph Deschner | Berlin, Germany | 04/09/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"It's easy to throw dirt at someone's music, once he lost the race of fortune and fame, but it's not fair. This album originally came out in 1984 as an LP on Takoma Records, shortly before John Fahey's own (and fine!) label went broke. It was a damn honest and straightforward attempt to bring back the energy of Folk-Rock to Gene Clark's music, and it surely does! The "Rain Song" alone is well worth buying this album, but furthermore we hear a truly tuneful rendition of "Mr. Tambourine Man" (several verses), the stunning "Something About You Baby", the mystical "Blue Raven", the trucking "Rodeo Rider" and other gems. The only argument against this album could be the lack of a concept and the use of one or the other remake and/or cover version. To a true devotee things like that don't matter: Gene Clark IS the concept!"
