Editors’ Notes Also known as simply "Gene Clark," White Light is a classic country-influenced singer/songwriter album from the early '70s. Clark's songwriting is peerless, and his vocals ache with a sincerity that brings out the heartbreak in the Clark/Jesse Ed Davis song "With Tomorrow." The band is impeccable, with Flying Burrito Brother Chris Ethridge on bass, Mike Utley on organ, producer Jesse Ed Davis on guitar, and the Steve Miller Band's Ben Sidran on piano and Gary Mallaber on drums. Though the album was sinfully ignored commercially upon its release, it's remained a critical favorite. The pathos of "Because of You" and the glorious organ-acoustic guitar interplay of "One in a Hundred" are further sparked by Clark's angelic voice. "For a Spanish Guitar," with acoustic guitar and harmonica, is wrapped in a forlorn melody that spreads across the evening sky. Clark's take on Bob Dylan's "Tears of Rage" evokes the darkness of The Band's legendary version. This edition of the album features an alternate mix of "Because of You," three previously unreleased tunes, and the rare country-rock track "Winter In."
