This review is from: Silverado '75: Live & Unreleased (Audio CD)Recorded live with the Silverados in Denver, 1975, Gene Clark was re-defining his direction after falling out with David Geffen at Asylum Records. "No Other" was Gene's masterpiece but Geffen was displeased that the $100,000 budget that he'd given him had produced an album with only eight tracks and withdrew support for it. Another set back in the tragic life of the inspired, but flawed, godfather of country rock.
So with Duke Bardwell, fresh from Elvis Presley's band, on bass and banjo and Roger White on electric and acoustic guitar he drove off in an ancient Dodge to play clubs and honky tonks across America: a far cry from those halcyon days with the Byrds.
Clark's songs are minor key triumphs and with the Silverados he produced a country inflected style of roots music with three part harmonies and his driving 12 string guitar.
The show included two classic songs from his days with the Byrds, "Here Without You" and "Set You Free This Time" confirming his status as one of the few songwriters who can stand comparison with Dylan. Gene and the Silverados pared things down to simple yet moving readings of some of his best loved songs and 36 years on we are privileged to hear them again.
