Product Details
Performer Notes
  • ECHOES includes tracks from Clark's 1967 solo album ECHOES (WITH THE GODSIN BROTHERS), a 1967 single, and demo versions of other tracks.
  • Includes liner notes by Sid Griffin.
  • Digitally remastered by Vic Anesini (Sony Music Studios, New York, New York).
  • ECHOES is a quietly gorgeous best of documenting the songwriting prowess of the Byrds co-founder Gene Clark between late 1964 and 1968. The first two tracks are rough (but entertaining) rehearsal takes by the original Byrds, recorded before they signed with Columbia and hit big with "Mr. Tambourine Man." There are also four selections from the Byrds' first album, including the ethereally beautiful "Here Without You."
  • The rest of the disc consists of Clark's first solo album, with several of the cuts remixed with a slightly more modern sound. The music is mostly proto-country rock, the sort of thing the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers would get the credit for inventing, although there's evidence here that Clark got there first. The album also includes both sides of Clark's unreleased 1967 single "Only Colombe," a magnificent baroque psychedelic pop confection that could be Bob Dylan fronting the Left Banke.
Professional Reviews
Q (1/95, p.263) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...The overall feel of the record is mellifluous and easy, if a touch overwrought....Though he was never again to enjoy the mass popularity he had with the Byrds, he remained true to his music..."
