-- "On WHITE LIGHT, Clark's transfigured country music is stripped back to its deceptively barest bones..."
An early solo release by former Byrd Gene Clark, 1971's WHITE LIGHT is widely regarded as one of the lauded singer-songwriter's finest albums. With its spare, largely acoustic arrangements, the record allows Clark's plaintive vocals and emotional lyrics to come to the fore, as best revealed on the rootsy title track and the intimate "Where My Love Lies Asleep." For any devoted Clark fan, this disc is essential. (Note: The 2006 reissue includes five bonus tracks.)
