Gene Clark with Banjo Genius Doug Dillard on Hybrid SACD!
Mastered Direct-to-DSD from the Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio!
What a time 1968 was for the burgeoning country rock scene! Gene Clark and Gram Parsons had introduced rock fans to some country flair with The Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo. After Sweetheart, Parsons broke auspicious new ground with The International Submarine Band (just a year before he'd make The Flying Burrito Brothers' The Gilded Palace of Sin), while Gene Clark teamed with banjo genius Doug Dillard for this bluegrass classic, The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark.
The picking virtuosity of Dillard, Bernie Leadon and others on this album meshes beautifully with Gene Clark's soulful vocal presence and guitar. The repertoire is endlessly fun and engaging, but punctuated with somewhat somber Clark offerings like "She Darked The Sun" and "Something's Wrong".
Country rock is familiar ground to Intervention fans, as they've already tackled greats from The Flying Burrito Bros., and Gene Clark's amazing solo effort White Light. This is the roots of the music that paved the way for the Eagles and countless others.
The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark is mastered Direct-to-DSD from the 1/4" 15-ips Original Analog Master Tapes by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio! The tapes sound beautifully dynamic and alive, with tuneful bass, extended highs and three-dimensional imaging. The IR cut has better separation and punch than ANY previous version of this amazing record!
The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark is one of the first, inarguable classics of country-rock ... a work rooted in tradition while reveling in freedom and new ideas and making the most of them all.
