Gene Clark is best remembered a founding member of the Byrds, but for the bulk of his recording career he was a solo artist. On August 30th his long out-of-print disc Two Sides To Every Store is hitting shelves again with bonus material, previously unseen photos and new liner notes. The disc features contributions from guitarist Jeff “Skunk” Baxter and backing vocals by Emmylou Harris. Here’s an exclusive stream of “Kansas City Southern” from the album.
Clark died in 1991, just one year after the original line-up of the Byrds reformed at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Just two years later Byrds drummer Michael Clarke died, but David Crosby, Roger McGuinn and Chris Hillman are still alive and very active in music. Hillman and Crosby are extremely interested in a Byrds reunion, but McGuinn refuses to even consider it.
