Harold Eugene “Gene” Clark was an American singer-songwriter and founding member of the folk rock band The Byrds. Clark was The Byrds’ dominant songwriter between 1964 and early 1966, penning most of the band’s best-known originals from this period, including “I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better”, “She Don’t Care About Time”, “Set You Free This Time”, and “Eight Miles High”.He created a large catalogue of music in several genres, but failed to achieve solo commercial success. Clark assembled a backing group consisting of highly accomplished country rock musicians to accompany him on an album with A&M. Progress was slow and expensive and A&M terminated the project before completion.The resulting eight tracks, including “Full Circle Song” and “In a Misty Morning” were added to those recorded with The Byrds in 1970/71 (“She’s the Kind of Girl” and “One in a Hundred”) and with The Flying Burrito Brothers (“Here Tonight”), and released in 1973 as Roadmaster in the Netherlands only.early exponents of psychedelic rock, baroque pop, newgrass, country rock and alternative country
