A Fair and Loving Portrait of Gene Clark,founding member of the Byrds
26 November 2013 | by (L.A.,Ca.) – See all my reviews

The Producer,Paul Kendall set out with one goal.To honor Gene Clark,not only as the man he was but in hope to introduced a talent all but relegated to a simple foot note in the annals of the most creative "Singer,Song Writer,Boom" of the last 50 years. Kendall and "Four Son Productions" deftly and clearly,via exclusive interviews with former Bandmates,Managers,Producers,Record Industry Moguls,family and friends reveal the true Gene Clark with answers carefully designed to protect one's own self interest. Years in the making,untold interviews,headaches and personal monies spent,all due to the love Gene gave freely to everyone he met.A story I know personally and heard repeated time and again and the driving force behind this documentary.Yet more than that.Tiz a beautiful treat for the eyes,up lifting and informative featuring a cast of legendary writers,singers and players such as David Crosby,Chris Hillman,Roger McGuiin and many others.This is one DVD you will want to revisit time and again,and soon I promise you will be searching for all the Gene Clark songs you can lay you're ears on… Trace Harrill
