Fans of the late Gene Clark have long known that the singer-songwriter was, truly, like No Other - so it's appropriate that his 1974 cult classic of that name is getting the lavish, super deluxe treatment from the folks at 4AD Records. On November 8, the label will reissue No Other in four formats including: 3 SACD/1 Blu-ray/1 LP/1 7-inch single Limited Deluxe Box Set; CD; 2CD; and 1LP. No Other, recorded at West Hollywood's Village Recorder with producer Thomas Jefferson Kaye,
Though he's been - and continues to be - the subject of numerous reissues and releases, Gene Clark still remains somewhat of an enigma. The founding member of The Byrds (1944-1991) only released six solo studio albums within his too-short lifetime, bolstering a discography also containing group and collaborative efforts. But he left behind what seems like scores of unreleased tracks, much of which has been mined in the years since his death. In 2013, the Omnivore label issued his demos for

Omnivore Recordings has been living up to its name with a little bit of everything - and the next few months promise to continue in that tradition with high-profile titles from artists including Vince Guaraldi, Gene Clark, The Rose Garden, Dennis Coffey, and Malo! Good grief! Jazz great Vince Guaraldi is best known for his immortal scores for Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts animated television specials and first feature film, but the multi-faceted pianist and composer was a man of many talents.
Though Gene Clark first made his mark as an original member of The Byrds, where he penned such classic folk-rock songs as "Feel a Whole Lot Better," he left behind as rich a legacy as a solo artist as he did with The Byrds. Clark's tenure as a Byrd wasn't a long one; though the group rose to prominence with its 1965 Columbia debut Mr. Tambourine Man, Clark left the band in early 1966 amid interpersonal strife and a dislike of touring.
