Two Sides To Every Story, the criminally long out-of-print solo album from Gene Clark, a founding member of The Byrds, is out today, November 18th as a deluxe CD via High Moon Records. The album, which came out in 1977 will be available as an expanded CD with bonus tracks. This re-mastered version of Two Sides To Every Story features absolutely stunning sound. Listen, download and share one of the rare bonus tracks, “I Saw A Dream Come True”. Recorded live at the Tango Club, this song was never recorded for any album and it was only played live a couple times.
Two Sides To Every Story is packaged in a deluxe hardbound Eco-Book with a full-color 26-page book. It has never-before-seen photographs by Ed Caraeff from the Two Sides Photo session and liner notes by John Einarson, author of accalaimed Gene Clark biography, Mr. Tambourine Man. There is also an exclusive download card featuring over 90 minutes of unheard Gene Clark in 24-bit WAV files including stunning live full-band performances from 1975. The deluxe CD features a never-aired 1974 Gene Clark interview by L.A. disc jockey B. Mitchel Reed.
The album was voted #3 in the 2010 Uncut feature “Readers 50 Greatest Lost Albums.” From the country-rocking “Kansas City Southern”, to the to the achingly, melancholy, strings-and-synthesizer-draped “Sister Moon”, Two Sides is a masterfully eclectic album that All Music Guide proclaims “succeeds on many more levels the more heralded No Other.” Produced by Thomas Jefferson Kaye (who also produced Clark’s masterpiece No Other), the album features an all-star cast of musical co-conspirators: Emmylou Harris on backing vocals, banjo virtuoso Douglas Dillard, Country violin legend Byron Berline, pedal- steel ace Al Perkins, and Jeff “Skunk” Baxter on guitar.
