The legendary 1967 Gene Clark recordings. Also includes six
additional previously unissued & unknown recordings
Gene Clark’s musical legacy is most certainly assured as a
singer, songwriter and member of some xclusive 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).
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 (see Omnivore’s Here
Tonight: The White Light Demos for example), but now the Holy Grail of
Clark’s post-Byrds career is finally about to see the light of day.
longtime Gene Clark fans and aficionados, the tracks on this remarkable
archival album 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.
In addition to the 8 tracks from the Gene Clark
Sings For You acetate, recorded in 1967 after he famously left The Byrds,
there are an additional 5 previously unknown tracks from a further 1967 acetate
given to the band The Rose Garden for recording consideration. This new
compilation also includes a previously unissued demo rescued from a tape in the
collection of John Noreen, member of The Rose Garden. This demo of the song
“Till Today” is Clark running through the song for the band who would cut it on
their only album, the 1968 self-titled effort on Atco Records (also being
reissued and expanded at the same time as Gene Clark Sings For You).
Released with the full approval and cooperation with both
the Estate of Gene Clark and the band The Rose Garden, Gene Clark Sings
For You is produced for release by Grammy-winner Cheryl Pawelski with
restoration and mastering by Grammy-winner Michael Graves. With previously

David Crosby's life and music will be the subject of a new
documentary produced by Academy Award-winning filmmaker/journalist Cameron
Crowe's Vinyl Films will produce the A.J. Eaton-directed
film about the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer with BMG, which is financing and
executive producing the doc.
In addition to producing the documentary, Crowe has
conducted multiple interviews with Crosby that will cast a new light on the
artist, whose career includes stints in the Byrds and Crosby, Stills, Nash
& Young, as well as a vibrant solo career.
"David Crosby has been near the forefront of music and
social change for the last four decades. Now 76, he’s forging a new path by
seeking out younger musicians and trying to make a mark in a world now so
different from the generation he came to define in the 60’s.", Crowe said
in a statement.
"It’s a raw and moving portrait, rough edges and all. We’re also so proud of the work being done by our wonderful director
A.J. Eaton who’s been filming Croz for the last several years."
