The Soulful Return Of Gene Clark

Mick Brown, Sounds, 24 January 1976

WHILE ROGER McGuinn plays with his electronic toys in his Hollywood mansion and makes records that are mere shadows of his past work; while David Crosby sails his yacht, counts his royalties from the last CSN&Y tour and watches a below-par album collaboration coasting up the American charts; and while Chris Hillman licks his wounds after the Souther Hillman Furay Band debacle and reflects on his successes with the Flying Burrito Brothers and Manassas, Gene Clark hikes around the club and college circuit, with his five-piece backing band, prepares to record his third solo album and wonders just what the hell he has to do to secure an audience.
