I express my admiration of the film 'The Byrd Who Flew Alone'
20 November 2013 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

I love this DVD partly because it takes me back to my teacher training college days of the early 1970s. I only wish that, then, I had been more aware of the talent that was Gene Clark. But this film fills the gap. Considering the limited footage that was available, Four Suns Productions have created a deeply sympathetic film of a fantastic musician, but is also honest about the flawed man. I find the interviews with family, friends and musicians frank and thought provoking and I have to express my admiration for the interviewee(s). The choice of background music is wonderful and the end footage left me with wet eyes... Thanks must go to Paul Kendall and his sons for the commitment and dedication that went into this tribute to Gene Clark.
