"This is Clark at the height of his poetic powers, wading deep into the psyche of desire, enlightenment and redemption." — Luke Torn, Uncut
Two Sides To Every Story, the criminally long out-of-print solo album from founding Byrds member, Gene Clark, finally returns to vinyl. 35 years after its initial 1977 release on RSO,
re-mastered, 180-gram audiophile vinyl LP is presented in stunningly rich and crisp audio fidelity that will shed new light on this underrated, beautifully-crafted Gene Clark classic. The album was produced by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, producer of Clark’s masterpiece, No Other, and features an all–star cast of musical co-conspirators:
singer Emmylou Harris, banjo-virtuoso Douglas Dillard (The Byrds, Dillard & Clark), Country violin legend Byron Berline, guitarist Jeff “Skunk” Baxter (Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell), and pedal-steel ace Al Perkins (Flying Burrito Brothers, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones).
Gene Clark served as The Byrds chief songwriter in the mid-sixties, penning some of their most essential songs, including “Feel a Whole Lot Better,” “Eight Miles High” and “You Showed Me.” Clark’s inimitable songwriting and singing continue to inspire and influenced countless artists.
Among them: Robert Plant and Alison Krauss (who recorded TWO of his compositions on their 2010 Grammy® winning Album Of The Year, Raising Sand ), Bob Dylan, Fairport Convention, REM, Tom Petty, Yo La Tengo, the Flamin’ Groovies, Teenage Fanclub, and Wilco.
A founding member of The Byrds, Gene Clark composed the band's most essential originals, including "Fee A Whole Lot Better," "Eight Miles High" and "You Showed Me." The follow-up to Clark's undisputed masterpiece No Other, Two Sides features an all-star cast: Emmylou Harris, producer Thomas Jefferson Kaye (No Other), banjo virtuoso Douglas Dillard, country violin legend Byron Berline, Jeff "Skunk" Baxter (Doobie Brothers, Steely Dan), and pedal steel ace Al Perkins (Flying Burito Brothers, Bob Dylan, Rolling Stones).
This impeccably remastered album features a 16-page, full-color book replete with never-before-seen photos from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame photographer Ed Caraeff's archives.
Thanks to Dan Hersch's remarkable mastering work, a full and rich nuanced recording emerges from the master tapes, improving upon from the sounds of the original 1977 pressing.
Truly a sonic revelation!
