Intervention Records introduces the next 180-gram LP in its (Re)Discover Series, Gene Clark’s stunning 1971 classic, White Light.
White Light is a bittersweet and knowing statement from a singer/songwriter at the peak of his creative powers. Having fronted The Byrds, Clark on his own here is stripped down in guitarist Jesse Ed Davis’ stark production. The lyrics, singing and guitar playing are so powerful that less production here is immeasurably more musically.
White Light’s 180-gram LP is 100% Analog Mastered by Kevin Gray at CoHEARent Audio from the best source available- phenomenal-sounding 1/2″ safety copies of the original stereo master tapes. The results are amazing! The beautiful guitar playing is full and rich, and listeners can hear the full body of the instruments, not just the strings. Gene’s aching vocals have never been so emotive and immediate.
The album art is beautifully restored by IR’s Tom Vadakan and housed in a film-laminated, Old Style “Tip-On” jacket printed by Stoughton.
“… one of the greatest singer/songwriter albums ever made.” – All Music
“There’s not a less than compelling tune on this album but the standouts are ‘Because of You’ and ‘Spanish Guitar’, both of which take full effect every play thanks to Clark’s searing vocals and the intimacy of the recordings, which have never before sounded this pure and transparent, nor has Chris Ethridge’s bass been reproduced with such weight and texture. Lacquers were cut from original analog tape safety copy. The laminated cover and ‘Tip on’ jacket add to the reissue’s attractiveness. I’m compiling a list of 100 ‘must have’ all-analog in print records and this one has been added to the list. Highly recommended, even if, no, especially if you have a treasured original A&M pressing. This reissue kills the original in every possible way!” – Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, Music 9/10, Sound 9/10
