If there's any justice in the world, Gene Clark would be held with as much delight and in as high an esteem as Bob Dylan. However, such is the cruel and unjust nature of the music world that, until this long-overdue re-release of his second solo album, very few will have had the chance to sample this man's immeasurable (and now sadly departed) talent.
Luck and Gene Clark never really went hand-in-hand. He left the Byrds just as their furtive creativity peaked (see Younger Than Yesterday and Notorious Byrd Brothers for evidence), and apart from poor album sales, his solo material has rarely been given the praise it deserves.
Well, let's redress the balance. For "White Light" showcases a man who, as well as having a voice that would melt the hardest of hearts, could write songs of great emotion and beauty. In the style of all great songwriters past and present (specifically Dylan, Reed, Drake and Wilson), here is a man who has no fear of weaving his own song tapestry from self-extracted fibres of the psyche. The sparse instrumentation and dream-like vocal style only help to emphasise the fact - here is the sound of a man alone, isolated, and yet free.
Musically, Clark's solo work draws its main inspiration from the twin pillars of country and folk. Whilst this is hardly surprising considering his Byrds lineage (indeed, one can hear the influence of Dylan throughout, a fact blatantly conveyed by his cover of "Tears Of Rage"), his sound clearly tries to break away from the folk-rock of his mid-60s incarnation. Here, Clark is the touch-bearing troubadour, the soothsayer and the lovesick teenager that bedsit ennui spend most of their lives aspiring to.
The music that lies within "White Light" is, naturally, haunting, emotive and beautiful.

To listen to Gene Clark is to escape completely from everyday drudgery and fly to a place of warmth and beauty perfectly encapsulated in voice of terrifying tenderness. Listening to these original nine songs offers the chance to relive an era long since departed. His wavering, shuddering voice unsettles yet at the same time soothes the soul in a rare and sublime sense. His unique interpretation of country and folk drips with a feeling of agitation and sorrow that caresses the listener into a stupor. The music and sparse accompaniment is startling but it is his voice which stays in the memory

Gene Clark's voice never sounded as intimate and relaxed as on this album. This is one of those albums that creep up on you - gently easing into your mind further on each play, I guess you could call it a 'grower'. One of the bonus tracks is an almost 'campfire' rendition of Lieber & Stoller's 'Stand By Me', with Gene sounding like he's digesting fried chicken with a nice cold beer under a starry sky with absolutely no hang-ups in waiting. And his harmonica playing reveals enormous character. A lovely collection.

Format: Audio CD
1971's 'Gene Clark' (known more commonly as 'White Light', though an artwork mishap lost the title)is one of Clark's frequent post-Byrds masterpieces alongside ...with the Gosdin Brothers (1967), Echoes (1967/8, released 1991), The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark (1968), the underrated Roadmaster (1972), and career-high and contender for greatest LP ever, 1974's No Other. Of all his LPs, No Other appears to get the best reception- though I don't understand in these times when Gram Parsons' is lionised and Sweetheart of the Rodeo is seen as The Byrds' greatest work, why Clark's equally revolutionary music in the folk/country-rock/cosmic american music realm is so passed over!
Clark had become a bit lost, with a series of commercial flops and the obligatory hedonism- the latter would sadly contribute to his too early death in the early 1990s. The Byrds had come back into vogue with Untitled and the original Byrds attempted reunions- One in a Hundred here is a re-recorded version of a 1970 single with Clarke,Crosby, Hillman & McGuinn- this is featured on the classic Clark-compilation Flying High. Clark holed up in Medocino, California and in his own time wrote much of this LP- perhaps his own Basement Tapes/Big Pink (the cover of Tears of Rage I think nods to that, as well as the debt The Byrds owed Dylan. The version of Tears...doesn't top the Big Pink version, but is nice & Dylan was rather enamoured with Clark himself, particularly Spanish Guitar- which I'd love to hear Dylan sing!).
Members/ex-members of The Burritos (Clark almost replaced Parsons, then thought what was the point!

Clark announces his arrival into the 70's scene with White Light. A rustic sounding album it comes across as though Gene was enjoying life and being out of the limelight was suiting him just fine. The album starts with 2 awesome songs, The Virgin and With Tomorrow, with Gene's lyrics and voice almost celestial. The influence With Tomorrow had on Pink Floyd when writing Wish You Were Here is patently obvious. I do think the songs carry less of a punch towards the middle of the album but this is a minor hitch as the album should be listened to in its entirety.
