Roadmaster is the third studio album by Gene Clark, released in January 1973. The album was compiled from various unreleased recordings for A&M Records made in 1970 through 1972. Eight tracks are from an April 1972 recording session featuring Clarence White, Chris Ethridge, Spooner Oldham, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Byron Berline and Michael Clarke; two tracks ("One in a Hundred" and "She's the Kind of Girl") derived from an unissued single reassembling the five original Byrds prior to their 1973 reunion album; and the remaining track, "Here Tonight", had been recorded with The Flying Burrito Brothers.
This is overall one of his very best albums, and the competition's tough here with great albums like ‘White Light’, ‘No Other’ and ‘Firebyrd’. Gene Clark was more than the "Dylan" or "Neil Young" that never was... He was the "Gene Clark " that never was. And "Roadmaster" might be the Gene Clark album that never was...This was originally recorded as a follow-up to his now legendary ‘White Light’. But he only recorded eight songs back then, and it wasn't released. It was released only in Germany and Holland with three additional tracks Clark recorded with The Byrds (“She's The Kind Of Girl” and “One In A Hundred”) and The Flying Burrito Brothers (“Here Tonight”).
