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

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!

Of all the members that belonged to the Byrds at various stages, Gene was without doubt the most talented when it came to songwriting. He was essentially the creative force in the early Byrds, even though Roger McGuinn got the limelight for being the "Leader" of the group.
I cannot understand how this album did not make it big time when it was originaly released. It is equal to anything put out by Dylan, Neil Young, Lennon or Lou Reed. The truth is that many of us realised what a great artist Gene was, only after his untimely demise. Of course some of us were not even born when this came out!
It is a joy to listen to this masterpiece lying down in bed with the headphones on, so that the rest of world is put to one side for one moment. You listen to the voice, the acoustic guitars, harmonica, and you are taken on a musical journey that will blow your mind away. Apparently David Gilmour & Roger Waters took the opening sequence from With Tomorrow and adapted it for Wish you Were Here. Spanish Guitar would easily make it to my top ten of all tracks ever composed, alongside Lennon's Imagine, Lou Reed & John Cale's Sunday Morning, or Neil Young's Harvest.
For Byrds Fans who have never listened to Gene's solo offerings, this is the one to begin with. Buy it and let it broaden your horizons to prepare you for other masterpieces such as No Other.
