Format: Audio CD
'Flying High' is a superb 41-track retrospective of the genius who was the late Gene Clark. This is a cd as vital as The Byrds Boxed-set of 1990, the 'GP'/'Return of the Grievous Angel'-set, 'The Basement Tapes', 'Decade' (NY) and The Flying Burrito's double-set (though 'Gilded Palace...' is the only vital album they made). A vast majority of Clark's vital works are deleted and only to be found at expensive prices in record fairs (such as 1974's 'No Other'). So, this is a great collection of a career began in the early Sixties up to 1990's 'Changes'.
The first disc begins with 'You Showed Me', recently found on Poptones reissue of 'Preflyte'. This was covered by The Lightning Seeds-who sampled The Turtles version (as De La Soul and U2 did). This is the definitive take of a sublime song. Some Byrds standards are next- the best of which is 'Feel awhole lot better'(Clark's best song for The Byrds is absent- 'Here Without You')...'Tried so Hard' & 'So You Say You Lost You're Baby' are as good as anything The Byrds were doing at the time- the latter not a million miles away from the sound of Love's 'Forever Changes' (this was performed by Gene Clark & The Gosdin Bros.). Next is a solo-offering 'The French Girl'- recorded around 67/68- but not released til 1991 (on 'Echoes'). It is a much more soulful, Jimmy Webb-flavoured sound. The next three songs are unreleased track from 1968: 'Los Angeles' (an inferior precursor to The Burritos 'Sin City' or Neil Young's 'LA'); a wonderful take of Dylan's 'I Pity the Poor Imigrant' (from 'John Wesley Harding')and the divine song, 'That's Alright By Me'...Next are tracks from the seminal-'Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark'- 'Git on Brother' would charm anyone who likes the 'O Brother Where Art Thou?' soundtrack.

I was introduced to the Byrds recently by a friend of mine who suggested that I buy the Notorious Byrd Brothers from the record store in Greenwich Market. Although that masterpiece of an album was created after Gene was pushed out of the Byrds by Roger McGuinn due to his famous fear of flying, it led me on to the earlier Byrds albums, notably Mr Tambourine Man, Turn!Turn!Turn! and of course 5D which contained Eight Miles High (originally the brainchild of Gene Clark).
Flying High clearly illustrates the creative force that was Gene Clark and is an excellent introduction to Byrds fans who have not bought his solo work yet. It also serves as a brilliant insight to people who have not even listened to the Byrds yet. Gene's musical style could only be described as varied, in a similar way to work of John Cale of the Velvet Underground. They have another similarity in that their musical rivals, Roger McGuinn and Lou Reed, went on to to become more successful than the more talented Gene Clark and John Cale!
I first heard I'll probably feel a whole lot better on Tom Petty's Full Moon Fever and to me it is the best track of that first Byrds Album. Set you Free the best track from Turn!Turn!Turn! If I could have added anything else from No Other! I think it would have to be the title track which is a creative tour de force.
While you could argue about what should have been omitted from the playlist and what should have been there instead, the end result is always a pleasure to listen to. Gene deserved to be as successful as Dylan, Lennon and Neil Young to name but a few of his contemporaries who were equally talented but acknowledged as great artists during their working lives.

Any long term Gene Clark fan will almost inevitably have this album and/or the earlier single disc best-of from Raven (bless `em). And the reason for this is that, for a long period both while he was alive and after, a lot of his material just wasn't available. To say his recording career was complex (and troubled) is an understatement. The result is that albums had a tendency to appear and disappear fairly quickly. That situation has been rectified but even now this double CD set should have great attraction for anyone not wishing to invest in a load of other material. In most critic's eyes, the albums, "White Light" and the controversial, "No Other" are regarded as classics probably with addition of the first of the Dillard & Clark albums. Others vary considerably in quality. There's also stuff here that didn't appear on album and the great tracks with the Byrds are not ignored. In total this set contains material from fifteen albums plus singles and out takes. I'm possibly hopelessly biased but I'd still recommend starting a Clark collection right here. That's if you can get this for a reasonable price of course.

I'd like to throw something else into the mix. I regard Gene Clark as at least as important a figure in country rock as the much better known Gram Parsons (and I love Gram's music as much as anyone).

The Byrds (both during and pre) timeframe gets limited attention from Sid Griffin, the compiler; there are four tracks only. However the two must-haves, "Feel a Whole lot better" and "Set you free this time" are present and sparkling. Whilst I wouldn't totally go with the opinion that he was at his best whilst in the Byrds, these two do match up to the most of the individual performances.
