Gene Clark ‎– No Other

Notes:
"No Other" is the fourth solo studio album by American singer-songwriter Gene Clark. Released in September 1974, it was largely ignored or lambasted by critics and was a commercial failure; the studio time and cost were seen as excessive and indulgent. The record label, Asylum Records, did not promote the album, and by 1976 had deleted it from their catalog. Clark never recovered from the failure of the album.

In the early 2000s, "No Other" was reissued in its entirety to positive critical reappraisal; publications have referred to it as "a lost masterpiece" and "one of the greatest albums ever made." A newly remastered reissue campaign by 4AD was launched in November 2019, with the album reissued across a multitude of formats; the reissue was met with further critical acclaim.

Singles released:
No Other, January 1975
Life's Greatest Fool, March 1975

Forget getting a remastered copy. 200K in studio cost and drugs bought a beautifully made album. Geffen and reissues be damned. This is a perfect mid 70’s record.

Superb pressing and dynamics. Mastering also has great separation/soundstaging. Highly recommended, as nothing gets between you and the amazing music.

At the very least. The best LP released in 1974 that falls under the umbrella of Rock/Pop. The most talented Byrd for sure.

Defo going to pick up a copy of this to sit alongside my US press from '74 ...

The boxset seems utterly indulgent to me - and unless you have the sonic capabilities to get enough out of a SACD and/or Blu-Ray then - other than for purely collecting for collecting's sake - it's a pointless (increasingly expensive) buy... and call me old-fashioned, but there's only one way to listen to Gene...

Hoping 4AD have plans to address Gene Clark With The Gosdin Brothers...

Gene needs respect...

Marvelous edition. Sounds pretty good, with a very good balance of frequencies (Bass, middles, trebles) A very good reissue of one of my favourite all time albums.

My review THE BEST REISSUES OF 2019. TOP 20. Major League Music Series. (RIA Siberia, Russia). Clark's Super Deluxe Box Set - First Place. http://ria-sibir.ru/viewnews/72864.html

"The numbering in the review is purely author's. The main criteria for arranging in places are the uniqueness of reissue, compliance with consumer expectations, quality (from sound to design), although, of course, the main thing is Music."

About No Other box-set. "There is no other album like No Other. The ideal perfect album, a kind of “the dark side of the moon” in the style of American if we consider the strength and depth of the musical content multiplied by the impeccability of the studio work. And the real dark side in the life and art of Gene Clark (1944 - 1991)" - the author writes and I understand what he wants to say".

Hybrid SACDs sound great. I even liked SACD 2 and 3 more - bonuses are not just worse than the main material, but in places they even surpass it. Fantastic wonderful music and the best reissue of 2019 made by 4AD.
