From Gene Clark 'Firebyrd'

AMG REVIEW: Gene Clark's post-Byrds solo career was as frought with
false starts, and unmet promises as his two years with the Byrds were
filled with fame, fulfillment, and recognition. Firebyrd was an
triumph and a commercial disaster--released to rave reviews and an
enthusiastic response, as one of the finest solo projects ever to come
from an ex-Byrd, it was killed by poor distribution (demand in Europe,
especially Germany and Italy, where fan interest in Clark and the
was very high, resulted in high premiums being paid for used copies).
"Rain Song," "Rodeo Rider," and "Something About You" were some of
Clark's best songs in years, and his covers of two old Byrds numbers,
"Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better," are perfectly
credible reinterpretations, and he even does justice to Gordon
Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind." Not a "lost Byrds album" by
means, but a must-own for any serious Byrds fan. (see This Byrd Has
Flown) -- Bruce Eder, All-Music
