Gene Clark's post-Byrds solo career was as fraught with false starts and unmet promises as his two years with the Byrds were filled with fame, fulfillment, and recognition. Firebyrd was an artistic triumph and a commercial disaster -- released to rave reviews and an enthusiastic response as one of the finest solo projects ever to come from an ex-Byrd, it was killed by poor distribution (demand in Europe, especially Germany and Italy, where fan interest in Clark and the Byrds was very high, resulted in high premiums being paid for used copies). "Rain Song," "Rodeo Rider," and "Something About You" were some of Clark's best songs in years, and his covers of two old Byrds numbers, "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Feel a Whole Lot Better," are perfectly credible reinterpretations, and he even does justice to Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind." Not a "lost Byrds album" by any means, but a must-own for any serious Byrds fan. [In 1995, an expanded version of Firebyrd was released in Great Britain with the title This Byrd Has Flown.] ~ Bruce Eder

The British Blues Boom, Chronicle of a Revolution

If Joe Bonamassa has come back with British Blues Explosion, a year after the Rolling Stones’ Blue And Lonesome, it has cemented the fact that the British Blues Boom was more than just a trend. More than a simple musical trend, it was the interest of a younger generation for the great American blues idols that had been ignored in their country, which led to a real revolution, with three major agitators leading the charge, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page, considered in the UK as the “Holy Trinity” of rock and guitar. If they were far from being the only musicians involved, it is through their respective careers that we have discovered that blues, far from being an outdated musical genre, is some kind of getaway to other musical areas and has allowed for endless innovations.

Elvis, Still The King?

40 years after his death, Elvis Presley remains an unparalleled precursor. But even if his most important performances of 1954/55 for Sun Records remain the cornerstone of rock’n’roll, the aura today of the King seems to be fading in favour of younger generations such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys among others. And yet…

Woodstock: 50 Years Later

Woodstock wasn’t the first gathering of its kind dedicated to music. At the time, Newport was already a regular meetup for fans of the new rock & folk music that had come crashing upon the youth (American and otherwise) like a tidal wave. Festivals such as Monterey (California) or the Isle of Wight (U.K) had been all the talk of the previous summers. But Woodstock was by far and large the most memorable of them all, due to its unbridled, spontaneous nature, as well as its long list of famous performers. Case in point: 50 years later, eyes still light up when it’s mentioned.
