About this album

This is a compilation of “The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark” and “Through The Morning, Through The Night”, 1968 and 1969 respectively. It adds “Why Not Your Baby”, “Lyin’ Down The Middle” and “Don’t Be Cruel” to the original songs on the separate releases. For Gene Clark, the Byrds were a distant memory. The Flying Burrito Brothers had not yet taken off. So, in late 1967 and early 1968, he gathered with Doug Dillard, Chris Hillman, Bernie Leadon, David Jackson, and Donna Washburn (among others) to produce his version of Gram Parsons’ “American Music” and succeeded artistically, if not commercially. there are the obvious gems: “Train Leaves Here This Morning” (later done on the Eagles first album, 1972), “Something’s Wrong” (early environmentalism), “Through The Morning, Through The Night” (both stunning and understated), “Kansas City Southern” (got a bump from Pure Prairie League on their 1975 “Two Lane Highway”), and “Polly” (quite possibly the finest Gene Clark recording available). All tracks merit a listen but pay particular attention to the standards that are superb “re-makes” for this album. What is absent (or appears to be): electricity. Not in the performance, but in the use of acoustic instruments, save the snare drum and organ that pop in now and then.
