"The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark is one of the first, inarguable classics of country rock ... a work rooted in tradition while reveling in freedom and new ideas and making the most of them all!" — AllMusic
Intervention Records is thrilled to announce the latest addition to its (Re)Discover Series, a Hybrid CD/SACD of The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark, featuring singer-songwriter Gene Clark and banjo genius Doug Dillard. The CD/SACD will be available on or before 5/27/22 and look for a 180-gram vinyl announcement and release for late 2022.
What a time 1968 was for the burgeoning country rock scene! Gene Clark and Gram Parsons had introduced rock fans to some country flair with The Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo. After "Sweetheart," Parsons broke auspicious new ground with The International Submarine Band (just a year before he'd make The Flying Burrito Brothers' The Gilded Palace of Sin), while Gene Clark teamed with banjo genius Doug Dillard for this bluegrass classic, The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark.
The picking virtuosity of Dillard, Bernie Leadon and others on this LP meshes beautifully with Gene Clark's soulful vocal presence and guitar. The repertoire is endlessly fun and engaging, but punctuated with somewhat somber Clark offerings like "She Darked the Sun" and "Something's Wrong."
Country rock is familiar ground to Intervention fans, as Intervention has already tackled greats from The Flying Burrito Bros., and Gene Clark's amazing solo effort White Light. This is the roots of the music that paved the way for the Eagles and countless others.
The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark is mastered Direct-to-DSD from the 1/4" 15-ips original master tapes by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio! The tapes sound beautifully dynamic and alive, with tuneful bass, extended highs and three-dimensional imaging. The IR cut has better separation and punch than ANY previous version of this amazing record!
