Gene Clark (ex-Birds) and Doug Dillard (ex-Dillards) combine here with a host of others (Bernie Leadon, Sneaky Pete on steel, Chris Hillman on banjo, Byron Berline on fiddle, Donna Washburne and others) in a country rock classic, with outstanding numers like the sad "Out on the side", the reflective "She darkened the sun", then a harmonica-intro leading you gently to the most brilliant of all, happily uptempo "Don't come rolling", the classic (but penned for this album) "Train leaves here this morning", another absolute stunner in "With care from someone"... these guys can tug on your heartstrings and have your feet tapping at the same time. Stunning.
"The radio song" is another that is an instant classic: 'fifteen miles from Memphis, I think that was the sign... I'll be driving through tomorrow just to lose a worried mind...' I think Gene Clark never wrote songs as good as these, really, and that is saying something.
Their second album (from 1969), Through the morning through the night, is also very good, but there is nothing that can touch this Fantastic Expedition. Even the cover is a classic, with Dillards smile passing that joint, and Clark looking forward eagerly - and the reflecion in the bike's mirror!
A stunning masterpiece, endlessly replayable.

Packaged as a digipak Sundazed has once again done a terrific job with this reissue. My only complaint is that there aren't any bonus tracks and, quite honestly, BOTH Dillard and Clark albums could have fit on one CD (along with the single the band recorded)and I would have preferred that it was presented that way for this edition. Even though the second album wasn't quite as strong (and Clark's involvement was dimnished) both albums are worth while to pick up particularly for Clark fans.
