- Back of Burke (Guday!), Australia
Not sure if anyone has come across the Gene Clark album from 1974 - "No Other". I haven't played it all that much though because I felt the original album was doing too much with Gene Clark (with the exception of a couple of tracks - "Silver Raven" and "From a Silver Phial"), however I've got the Remastered & Expanded edition of "No other" and found that if I substituted the alternative versions of "Life's Greatest Fool", "No Other", "Some Misunderstanding" and "Lady of the North" the album gets interesting. The only really odd track seems to be "Strengths of Strings", though it has it's moments. Unsure if Gene Clark did an alternative version of "Strengths of Strings", the other alternatives basically simplify into a folkier song - it's a pity the CD can only hold 75 minutes of information (or this one does - the songs are quite long particularly "SOS" and "Some Misunderstanding so while some of the alternative songs are shorter than the album version their definitely of reasonible length - the shortest songs are just over 3 minutes!).
