1001 Albums You Must Hear (and Blog about) Before You Die

My attempt to blog all of the entries from the book 1001 Albums to Hear Before You Die

672. No Other – Gene Clark

Brief Background: No Other is the fifth solo album by Gene Clark. It was recorded in the Spring of 1974 and released in September of the same year. Rumor has it that the album was intended to be a double, but Asylum Records (i.e. David Geffen) was upset at the huge cost of recording and released it as is.

What I think: I didn’t really like Clark’s second  solo album White Light, I called it sub-par Folk. Unfortunately, that sup-par Folk was much better than this sort of Cosmic Folk. It feels like a mix of Pink Floyd and Country Rock. And I don’t dig it at all. Well “The True One” is alright, but that is it.

Do I agree or disagree with the writers as to this being an album you must listen to? Like his first solo album, I think we can do without.

Rating (Out of 5): .5

No Other Amazon Review (Out of 5): 4.5

Is this my first time hearing this album? Yes (258/330)

Percentage of Albums that are new to me: 78%

Today I started new position as an Academic Librarian at Normandale Community College. Half of my time will be spent on reference and the other half on classroom instruction.  I'm very excited to utilize the skills I have, but more importantly learn a zillion new things about librarianship!
