Gene Clark's musical legacy is most certainly assured as a singer, songwriter and member of some exclusive company as an inductee to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, a founder of The Byrds, and collaborator in groups such as Dillard & Clark, Gene Clark and the Gosdin Brothers, McGuinn Clark & Hillman and later as the duet partner of Carla Olson (The Textones).
His songs have been covered by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Iain Matthews, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, The Rose Garden, and Chris & Rich Robinson of The Black Crowes among many others. As well documented as Clark's career has been, there have been remarkable discoveries over the years, but now the Holy Grail of Clark's post-Byrds career is finally about to see the light of day.
"For longtime Gene Clark fans and aficionados, the tracks on this remarkable archival release are the stuff of legend. Since word first spread in the 1980s about the discovery of these 1967 recordings on a rare acetate in Liberty Records' vaults, fans have come to regard Gene Clark Sings For You as nothing less than the Holy Grail of the singer-songwriter's extraordinary body of work. Shrouded in mystery and the subject of much speculation and conjecture, few have ever had the opportunity to hear these forgotten gems from one of Gene Clark's most prolifically creative periods. Until now." from the liner notes by John Einarson, author of Mr. Tambourine Man: The Life And Legacy of The Byrds' Gene Clark
Finally available, the legendary Gene Clark Sings For You acetate is issued on 2LP. In addition to the original 8 songs from Sings For You, this issue also features an additional five demos from a second acetate lent courtesy of The Rose Garden's John Noreen, as well as one further demo of the song "Till Today." The Rose Garden acetate and the "Till Today" demo were submitted to the band, The Rose Garden, with whom Clark had grown close, for consideration for their debut Atco album.
Produced for release by Grammy®-winning producer, Cheryl Pawelski with restoration from Grammy-winning engineer, Michael Graves, this historic release features previously unseen photos and an essay by Gene Clark biographer, John Einarson.
