This is quite simply one of the very best albums to have come out of West Coast America - ever. Heard in it's entirety, it is a work of staggering vision, scope and emotional depth. The quality of the songs, playing, arranging and production is breathtaking, but for me, it is Gene Clark's haunting voice, dripping wih melancholy, that makes this such an unsettling and unforgettable experience. One year after Gram Parsons death, Gene Clark picked up the cosmic torch and kept it burning bright.How Geffen allowed this masterpiece to sink without trace on it's initial release is beyond me, but perhaps it was a little too dark for mass appeal. Way ahead of it's time in 74, this sounds absolutely wonderful in 2003 and completely relevent. Insightful and moving liner notes from Johnny Rogan and Sid Griffin, plus fascinating alternative cuts make this a great value-for-money re-release. If you thought you knew everything there was to know about 70's West Coast music and you don't have No Other, you are in for a wonderful and hugely rewarding suprise.

Some albums defy description. No Other by the great late, lamented Gene Clark fits this discription. I can only describe the genre it fits in as American cosmic country. We are only talking about eight tracks here, but they represent a stunning achievement for Clark here. For the last time in his career, Gene had an innovative producer in Thomas Jefferson Kaye and a big production budget. Most of the songs deal with the metaphysical and the power of music. The album's greatest track is the outer space influenced, 'Silver Raven'. It's a beautiful evocative track, superbly decorated by the guitar work of Jesse Ed Davis. Other standout tracks are the voodoo funk of the title track, the Epic 'From A Silver Phial' and 'Strength Of Strings', although there is not a duff track. It's crying out for a UK release(I have a japanese import copy). This is an album which couldn't get arrested on release in 1974, but regularly gets in most critics best of lists. My words cannot do justice to this immense aural, musical achievement

Having known and loved it for years, I recently got a copy of this classic for a friend of mine who (having both of us watched the recent superb BBC4 documentary about him) was new to Gene Clark (1944-91). I warned him that it might take more than one listen for it to `get through`. He texted me to say that he was immediately bewitched by it. He sounded quite overwhelmed. That`s what Gene Clark can do to you, particularly this album from 1974, on which he and his sympathetic producer Thomas Jefferson Kaye pulled out all the stops.
It`s that other sometime Byrd and harbinger of Americana Gram Parsons who has tended to reap plaudits and (in recent years) sales, but it`s Gene Clark who I play more often and with more of a sense of deep pleasure, if not outright awed homage. This isn`t the place to denigrate the hugely talented Gram P, but his tragically early death at 26, and his unarguable prowess as a songwriter and country catalyst, has overshadowed the fact that his voice was not always an `easy listen` - ie. he often sang flat.
No such provisos with the man from Missouri (who grew up in Kansas). Gene`s voice hits the spot every time. His vocal tone reminds me most of that other early purveyor of `alternative country` Michael Nesmith, though with far more of a hint of melancholia to it. In fact, if you love, as I do, a bittersweet voice - such as Jackson Browne or Sandy Denny, for example - then Gene`s your man.
This remastered reissue, with booklet, notes and full listings, plus alternate versions of most of the songs, is a treasure trove of beauty and wonder.

It remains a scandal that a record as good as this is not available on CD. I've got an original vinyl copy that I'm scared to play. Cosmic country remains a great description of what this record offers and what really gets to you is the sheer wide screen feel of the thing. Rumour has it, that it was going to be a double Lp, but the support for that to happen wasn't there. A full release, in the way Gene & Thomas Jefferson Kaye intended will I hope deliver an album that for once will be able to live up to it's now ludicrous reputation.

A remarkable album by any standard. I can only endorse all the other positive reviews published here. It really is as good as everybody says. The expanded version includes 6 of the 8 tracks of the original album in more stripped down versions. This album competes, in its originality, with Van Morrison's Astral Weeks.

'No Other' is one of those rare gems of a record that just gets better with each listen. I suppose, it's a bit like Astral Weeks by Van Morrison or like Ys by Joanna Newsom as at first it can seem hard to get into, but once you have you will never be able to get away from it! And that's a good thing, by the way! It's a record with different shades. It's hard to describe but there are songs on this album that are both happy and sad at the same time. For instance, the album's opener 'Life's Greatest Fool' with it's otherwordly country rock chuggerlong and gospel choir is both extactically uplifting and overwhelmingly sad at the same time. With lyrics like 'Children laugh and run away, while others look into the darkness of the day', the album is never less than profound. With Sly Stone contributing some mean funk on 'No Other' and 'Lady of the North' the musicianship is simply telephathic.

It is a shame Clark was snatched away from us through his booze and ill health as I think he would be pleased to know that many people are greatly moved by the 'No Other' experience. I hope that this joyous album is one you soon decide to purchase.
