Rezension

Ausgerechnet das Label 4 AD widmet 2019 dem Zeit des Künstler-Lebens bemerkenswert unterschätzten 1974er Asylum-Album seine angemessene Aufwertung, wobei das Werk seit seiner ersten Veröffentlichung schon mehrere eher kurzlebige Reissues erlebte, darunter auch eine ansprechende Rhino-Ausgabe. Verschwand die ein Jahr nach der Byrds-Reunion entstandene LP schon kurz nach Erscheinen aus den Plattenregalen, so ist man sich heute über den Wert des Werkes einig: „One of the greatest albums ever made. Initially celebrated for its obscurity, No Other is now celebrated for its magnificence. It was in every way a magnum opus: Epic, sprawling, poetic, choral, rococo.” (The Guardian). Die Einfach-Versionen des 4 AD-Reissues bieten die acht Songs der 45 Jahre alten Kollektion in der frischen Abbey Road-Remaster-Fassung.

Review

On the eve of what would have been American singer-songwriter and Byrds founding member Gene Clark's 75th birthday comes the reissue of one of his fi nest works, No Other. Released in 1974 on Asylum Records, a year after the Byrds shortlived reunion, Gene reached for the stars with No Other; a psychedelic rock, folk, country and soul record that famously cost a small fortune to make. Although received warmly by critics, it fl opped and was soon deleted, a failure Gene never came to terms with. However, as The New York Times wrote around the record's 40th anniversary in 2014, "hindsight has burnished No Other, as it has redeemed other albums that went on to be reconstructed as rock repertory, like Big Star's Third/Sister Lovers and Lou Reed's Berlin," with the album now being increasingly recognised as one of the greatest of its time, if not all time. 45 years on and recently remastered at Abbey Road, 4AD are giving No Other the reappraisal it deserves.
