Gene Clark continues to be a favorite for me, even as I enter senior citizenship. His albums were always interesting, and he wrote so many lovely songs in his short career that one wonders why he never took off. His concerts, from the many I have heard on this site, were irregular, perhaps a result of his irregular lifestyle. This concert is pleasant but, surprisingly not as engaging as others I've heard. The backup band is part of the problem. The overall sound is rather thin, with old colleague Michael Clarke on drums, and two other musicians, a slide-type guitarist and a competent bass and Gene's acoustic guitar, there isn't much excitement in the arrangements, unlike the albums. Gene's voice is also irregular, but mainly competent. The songs are varied but played in much the same way. This worked with the early Byrds because of the density and excitement of the new folk-rock sound, but laid-back country can get a little boring without some variation--this band can't vary all that much. Having said that, I think this is a good concert to listen to, as even though he's not quite on fire in these sets, he still sounds good enough for these ears. Given the emotional and physical abuse he thrust upon himself, Gene Clark was a gifted artist with a fine repertoire of songs. Thanks for sharing them with us.

It's actually a pretty good show, considering that it's Gene, Mike , and Peter Oliva held over from the Firebyrds, and a pick-up guitarist. Saw these guys with this lineup in Cambridge, Ma. in late 84, and while it was a good show, it didn't match the shows from earlier in the year with the band intact. Still, anytime you got Gene and Mike together there was that original Byrds magic there.
