Having listened to it three times (I got it as an early Christmas present) it certainly isn't in the same league as White Light or No Other, but it's growing on me. It all has a very 80s feel to it - probably something to do with it being recorded in the 80s(!) and it's quite commercial sounding, but it has some good moments too. The first six tracks are pretty good - Mr Tambourine Man with extra verses and Gene sounds great here, but on the second track (Something About You Baby) I don't think you can hear his voice enough! Rodeo Rider is easy going, pleasing stuff. Rain Song is nice and Vanessa has a good guitar solo on it. If You Could Read My Mind is a nice cover. No alternative version of I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better could ever stand up to the original and the flute on the final track Blue Raven is irritating - but on the whole it all flows along quite nicely and if you're a big Gene fan like me you're thrilled to own anything by him you can get your hands on - it's all precious.

this album has a limited detail on the recordings on offer it has a good history of eugene clark's background which is interesting but lacks session detail or specific dates the tracks were recorded over, it was not too good to listen to the first time or two as there is hiss on the vocal,i usually listen through headphones as it means my wife can sleep or concentrate on her activities but it was only when she said what have you got on now that i played it through the speakers that it sounded better i personally found i didn't like all the songs but the ones i do like are the ones i will be keeping this c.d. for .

Possibly the least impressive of his albums but still has moments of pure magic.

HASH(0x97c36fc0) out of 5 stars GENE CLARK SOARS IN FINAL SOLO FLIGHT 8 Mar. 1999
By S. F Gulvezan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In this, the final solo album released before Gene Clark's untimely death at age 46, he once again proved his talents as a superior singer and songwriter. In original songs ranging from the haunting "Rain Song" to the cowboy narrative "Rodeo Rider" to the semi-mystical "Blue Raven" Clark demonstrates his range and versatility as a sensitive, soulful songwriter. He also revisits his early career (as co-founder of The Byrds) by providing new versions of two songs from The Byrds first album, "Mr. Tambourine Man," this time in an extended, piano-driven version, and "I'll Feel a Whole Lot Better," written by Clark and recognized as a classic rock song. All in all, highly recommended for anyone who likes soulful folk-rock or country-rock.

HASH(0x97c37030) out of 5 stars His Most Commercial Solo Album, But Not His Worst. 16 Dec. 2009
By Carlisle Wheeling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Some say it is difficult to pinpoint Gene Clark's sound, but that is a pretty rediculous statement. Even on the earliest Byrds recordings, it's pretty obvious the man had a gift that set him high above his own fellow bandmates. Sure, he's known for moody and prolific songs, but they also had a compelling quality that so few introspective songwriters could grasp, and had a tendency to verge on commercial. Now, my favorite of his albums is the Roadmaster sessions--definitely a matter of personal appeal--but you would be wrong to dismiss Firebyrd as a sellout. It didn't work, did it?

With a strong country rock sound, and very short playing time of slightly over half an hour, Firebyrd is sure to appeal to the most livid Gene Clark fan and also to anyone who likes Poco or the Eagles. There is a fabulous, pop-rock reproduction of "Mr. Tambourine Man" here in its entirety, a more southern flavored version of "Feel a Whole Lot Better," and an interesting take on Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind" which I admittently didn't like at first.

Standouts here are his ode to cowboys, "Rodeo Rider" and it's absolutely catchy chorus, an interesting, dark blues cover of "Vanessa," and my personal favorite, the romantic and winsome "Rain Song." In fact, the only two things I have to complain about are the fact that the album is too short, and the flute on "Blue Raven" (His post-divorce song to former wife Carly) is very excessive and annoying. Other than that, I highly recommend this album. Gene was a very talented and underrated songwriter with a strong, beautiful voice. You need to get this for that fact alone.

HASH(0x97bc4828) out of 5 stars The 1980's victimize yet another rock legend 27 Mar. 2009
By Chris Frohring - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When one thinks of Gene Clark, the word "organic" comes to mind. This disc was produced at the moment when analog was about to cede to digital and record companies were no longer concentrating on artist development. It's decidedly not organic. While the songs were not up to his usual standard, the production doesn't help this set either. There are no drum machines and synthesizers clogging the tracks, but the production is still dated in that indescribable "on the cusp of the Emulator" fashion. I would have preferred two brand new original tunes over remakes of "Mr. Tambourine Man" (with complete lyrics) or "Set You Free This Time". Recommended for Clark completists only. For beginners, see "Gene Clark with the Gosdin Brothers", a fine stepping stone from his Byrds era to his singer-songwriter period.

HASH(0x98504d68) out of 5 stars If the price is right, buy it! 8 Aug. 2005
By John A. Alfano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In contrast to one of the other reviewers I found this CD quite enjoyable. Clark's renditions of "Tambourine Man" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better" won't make you forget about the Byrds' classic recordings but they're different enough to give the songs a slightly new twist. On "If You Could Read My Mind", Gene definitely doesn't have the vocal range of Gordon Lightfoot but does a credible job with the material. This collection is certainly not the "Best of Gene Clark" but still features some appealing tracks like "Something About You Baby" and "Rain Song".

This is a budget CD that you may very well find in cut-out bins as well as for a very decent price on the net. It was well worth my 50 cent investment.

HASH(0x97c37468) out of 5 stars A great listening CD 21 Feb. 2015
By Warren C. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this Cd. Gene and band sounded great. I wondered if when Gene was singing If You Could Read My Mind that he was not talking about his life. When he sings the Hero often fails I wonder if he was talking about he could not over come his own fears in life that affected his career. If you want a Cd where you just have a good time listening to the great song and a great band you will like this.
