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

      What a fabulous pressing! I managed to find a NM copy of this one (that didn't completely break the bank...). Plays beautifully. Certainly one of the best records of the 70s.

        Really loving this collection. Fantastic tracks from start to finish on both LPs. Gold. Must have.

          Indeed an exceptional good sounding pressing, the music is divine.

            I've read a lot of comments of people stating that RSD was not very exciting this year (2024). I tend to completely (but respectfully) disagree as I think that this was one of the most interesting RSD so far... although one had to know what to look for. From my point of view, as I knew what to expect from this particular release when it comes to the content, this is one of the highlights of RSD 2024. As dmay26 says in another comment here (and he is right), some versions here are as good as, if not better than, the ones who made the original release. Let's say it's the 'stripped' other and people who wanted no other versions should definitely hear these ones and judge by themselves. I can also only recommend to buy the box set if you still have the chance.

              One of the better sounding vinyl pressings I’ve heard in quite a while. And the music itself is beyond divinity and infinity; cosmic freaky country-folk-funk at its finest. The songs are groovier and more muscular in these versions, without the big production overdubs that came later. I’d even go so far as to say some of them even outshine their released LP counterparts. The funk version of “Silver Raven” alone is reason enough to own this, to say nothing of all the other goodness on offer.

                Sounds good, just a bit mystified by the sloppy liner notes with random chunks of text in bold for no reason. Rushed to print? Great otherwise!

                  does this record contain anything that is not in the no-other-box 4AD has released two or three years ago?

                    My copy is totally flat, sounds amazing and the liner notes are a nice bonus. This record made my day!

                      Not hearing any hiss that's not related to the actual source material. If there's tape hiss present, it is no doubt related to the original masters, not the pressing quality. The label is famous for using shitty source material. I agree the 4MWB is def hit and miss in QC department. Some of my records from them sound like records-->CD-->records. Lot's of inner groove distortion.

                        I have the recent box set edition of this, which is excellent. The sound quality on the original is much better than the 4AD vinyl, there.is better separation and the drums have much more punch, everything just sounds lusher and with No Other that is kind of the key to this album. I was hesitant because the 4AD sounded OK but if you like this album this is the one you need, recommended.
