It went rather unnoticed but the latest vinyl re-release of Gene Clark and Carla Olson's LP « So Rebellious A Lover » on blue vinyl has a bonus 7’’ vinyl single with an unreleased Clark/Olson « home recorded » song.

Says Carla Olson:

« A blue vinyl version of my album with Gene, ‘So Rebellious A Lover’, has just been re-released in the summer and it includes a 7 inch single of Gene singing a song in his house, and me singing the song with him in the house, it was recorded in his lounge on a little cassette deck. It is really a wonderful addition to the many reissues of that album »

The LP was released on Sunset Blvd Records with reference LP-SBR-7021.

The single is as follows:


Side A

Gypsy Rider 

Recorded at Criterion Recording Studio, Hollywood, Ca. 1985

Bass – Joe Read

Drums – Phil Seymour

Side B

Number One Is To Survive

UPDATE The mention that Gene And Carla’s "Number One Is To Survive" is an unreleased track was based on what Carla Olson said in a recent interview. Actually, our regular correspondent JPM just let us know that it’s not unreleased, as it appears on Gene and Carla’s double CD “Gene Clark With Carla Olson In Concert” released by Collector’s Choice Music as long ago as 2007, with the note “Gene & Clara In Gene’s Living Room, 1989”
