Gene Clark on 4AD!

Postby never/ever » 10 Sep 2019, 22:34

Not really the first time (With Tomorrow featured on a This Mortal Coil - box set with original versions) but 4AD is the label that will re-release No Other in a deluxe edition.

The blurb: 'The original eight-track album is being released on both CD and LP with the design kept as close to the 1974 original as possible.

A limited run double CD edition housed in a hardbound book cover sees the original album being released alongside a bonus disc of alternate studio versions of each track plus a recording of 'Train Leaves Here This Morning' (an Eagles hit in 1972, written by both Gene and Eagles founding member Bernie Leadon).

Excitingly, the deluxe boxset edition fans have been waiting for has also been lovingly curated. An extremely limited item, the box contains the LP pressed on silver vinyl, three SACDs (a multi-layer SACD of the original album housed in an authentic Japanese vinyl replica sleeve printed by the Ichikudo Company plus two further SACDs of session mixes and radio edits), an exclusive 7”, a comprehensive Blu-ray disc package which includes HD versions of all tracks, a 5.1 surround mix of the album, the original 1974 vinyl master and an exclusive documentary by Paul Kendall (an edit of his acclaimed 2013 film, The Byrd Who Flew Alone: The Triumphs and Tragedy of Gene Clark), and a hardbound 80 page book which features essays, extensive liner notes and previously unseen photos.

Coming on the eve of Gene’s 75th birthday, this reissue serves as both a celebration for fans and an introduction to soon-to-be fans. There really is no other like No Other.

Any redbook CD release?

Sets are out on Nov 8 and cost an eyewatering E182 for the bells and whistles multi-disc, plus a more affordable - though still overly expensive - E26 for the 2 CD set as well as single CD and vinyl versions.

Cost, full tracklistings and pre-order details on the Ucunt website:

Having paid throuigh the nose for (and then hardly ever played) many special editions in the past, made a conscious effort to refrain from doing so this year. So much as I love Gene - and this album in particular - doubt if will cough up for this.
