Editors’ Notes There's no more beautiful country-rock tune than Gene Clark's "Gypsy Rider," a song that evokes all the world's loneliness and romance in four and a half minutes. Originally released in 1987, So Rebellious a Lover proclaimed the return of one of modern music's most underrated artists. Clark had been a formidable member of The Byrds, writing several of their best tunes, before walking away due to a fear of flying. He continued to sporadically release solo material that has been rediscovered in the ensuing decades. However, this would be his last stand, and a glorious one it is. With The Textones' Carla Olson providing perfect harmony, tunes such as "Fair and Tender Ladies," "Why Did You Leave Me Today," and Gram Parsons' "I'm Your Toy (Hot Burrito #1)" are given gorgeous performances. This edition includes six bonus cuts, including a stunning cover of Phil Ochs' "Changes" and the heartwrenching "Broken Hearts and Broken Dreams" from Olson. Sadly, Clark passed away in 1991.
