Original album, remastered at Abbey Road Studios!
Includes commemorative poster
Recorded at the Village Recorder in West Hollywood and produced by Thomas Jefferson Kaye, No Other was originally released in 1974 on Asylum Records, coming a year after the Byrds short-lived reunion. Reaching for the stars, Gene Clark delivered a visionary record of psychedelic rock, folk, country and soul which famously cost a small fortune to make ("It took a lot of time in the studio before we could actually get the songs to the point we wanted them," Gene said in 1977). Although warmly received by critics, No Other was a commercial failure and was subsequently deleted shortly after.
However, as The New York Times wrote around the record's 40th anniversary in 2014, "hindsight has burnished No Other, as it has redeemed other albums that went on to be reconstructed as rock repertory, like Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers and Lou Reed's Berlin," with the album now being increasingly recognized as one of the greatest of its time, if not all time.
Forty-five years on and recently remastered at Abbey Road, 4AD are giving No Other the reappraisal it deserves. The original tapes have been remastered at Abbey Road, and the remastered album has been pressed to black vinyl.
