Ok folks - unless you're already in LA you ain't going to get tonight's shindig, but you can bet your life it beats some over-hyped, shoddy nuptials. I'm sure you'd like to know about it though, and I'm sure you'll want to get your orders in for the new Two Sides. But this is also the first announcement for All I Really Want To Do...Is Sing A Song For You at the 12 Bar on Tues 24th May. It's an evening to celebrate Gene Clark and Bob Dylan and we've already got a load of people signed up to do two or three songs from their extensive repertoire. Mr Sid Griffin will be the master of ceremonies and raconteur-in-chief and we'll all have a really good time together.More news soon - now back to the city of the angels:
On April 29, High Moon Records will celebrate its label launch and upcoming release of Love's 1973 Black Beauty and Gene Clark's 1977 Two Sides To Every Story with a one-time-only concert at the Roxy in Los Angeles.
During the concert, Clark's son Kai Clark and the Kai Clark Band will perform Two Sides in its entirety and a full set of Gene Clark songs, and the surviving members of the Love Black Beauty Band will perform never-before-heard live versions of songs from Arthur Lee’s lost masterpiece Black Beauty.
Special surprise guests will perform throughout the night and include the surviving members of the Gene Clark Group (Chip Douglas, Joel Larson and Bill Rinehart) who will reunite for the first time in over 40 years and be joined by Kai Clark, Tim Bluhm of the Mother Hips, Stephen Ehret of Wildflower and famed rock photographer Henry Diltz of Modern Folk Quartet. The event is hosted by Jim Ladd of KLOS and sponsored by LA Weekly and Music Connection.
