Fantastic Expedition of Gene Clark
22 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This an excellent documentary, featuring members of Gene's family, friends as well as ex band members. It is thoughtfully presented and gives a good insight into Gene, the man, and what was happening in his life while we were listening to his beautiful, emotional music. A very fitting tribute to a mesmeric man, both on stage and off. I really recommend buying this documentary, it is a compassionate journey through Gene's life. I have watched it many times since I bought it and will do so many more times! The production, as well as the direction, is first-rate. Four Suns deserve plenty of praise for this work and I, for one hope they will give us more! Anything else in the pipeline?
