HASH(0x923ee768) out of 5 stars Finally! 23 Sept. 2003
By Michael R. Bristow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've spent decades collecting Clarence's session work, and I've even managed to locate three or four of the LPs that contain the Bakersfield International work... but to hear these tracks sans dust and wear, in pristine fidelity- I'm in heaven! Hong Kong Hillbilly (Nashville West) clocks in at around two minutes but contains so much music that it seems hours long (and no, I haven't been smoking anything). Tango for a Sad Mood alone is worth the price of the Cd, and is quite simply one of the most beautiful guitar instrumentals I have ever heard. All of these tracks provide a rare glimpse of a genius at his day job, if you will.
The Forward from Michelle White Bledsoe is quite moving, and Alec Palao's liner notes beatifully evoke this transitional period. A long awaited treasure for this Byrdnyrd!

HASH(0x923ee7bc) out of 5 stars GREAT RARE CLARENCE!! 22 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
OK first off I'm biased- I helped with this CD on remastering and remixing some of the stuff that never saw the light of day- or was remixed in stereo, so I'm biased but , I must say I love it! I grew up watching the Kentucky Colonels on Sunday morning TV in LA!!
I mean -some of it isn't the best of Clarence White granted but, for most people who are just starting their Clarence White experience they will hear just how versatile he was and what was going on around him from 67 -72.
Even if you are a hard core Clarence fan this stuff is great! and I must say a lot of "love" and attention went into the remastering of these tracks when need be. Please don't be put off by this other review- and no I am not on the record company's (ACE) payroll-

HASH(0x922421b0) out of 5 stars CD Fills a Major Gap 11 Jun. 2003
By Sandy Rothman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've listened to pretty much everything Clarence White recorded. He did a lot in his 29 years, and I find all of it interesting. This fascinating release reveals a transitional 2-year period in Clarence's career as a studio guitarist -- recordings that have been virtually unheard until now. To criticize "Tuff & Stringy" as a previous writer did is to miss the point entirely. These recordings will enlighten and entertain any Clarence fan except the terminally narrowminded. Considering that some of the tracks are informal studio demos and "idea sketches" from the mid-1960s, the technical quality is unexpectedly good. As for the music, it shouldn't be compared to the Byrds or the Kentucky Colonels. It's neither rock nor bluegrass. This CD fills a major gap, further documenting and demonstrating Clarence's broad musical interests and brilliance.

HASH(0x923eebc4) out of 5 stars A fine addition to your West Coast country rock collection. 8 Jan. 2008
By E.I.E.I. Owen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It is a crime that Clarence White is mostly known for a being a footnote in the history of the Byrds. Considering that next to Roger McGuinn, he and Gene Parsons were in the band longer than any of the original members and gave The Byrds a much-needed boost in their live performances. He should be held in high regard just like Gram Parsons. Apart from coaxing dazzling bends from his B-Bender equipped Telecaster, his was capable of doing it on a stock Tele and his acoustic work is amazing. This collection brings together tracks that Clarence White recorded mostly for Gary Paxton's "Bakersfield International" label and as a session guitarist for Paxton's studio. The sound quality varies from "great" to "ok" but many of these tracks have been long out of print or just released regionally so just from a historic perspective it is worth the price. Included is the original studio version of "Nashville West" as well as backing tracks and unissued tracks from Paxton's vault. There are also very informative liner notes included.

I will say that this collection is not for someone just getting into to Clarence White; I would suggest anything by the Kentucky Colonels, The Byrds, and Nashville West and then get this as well as the companion collection: Guilbeau & Parsons "Louisiana Rain" which has even more tracks featuring Clarence White.
