Patrick (and everyone else who has loved this former Byrd's music), I'm sure this article will be of great interest to you:

http://www.abc.net.au/arts/blog/barnaby-smith/A-filmmakers-quest-to-honour-Gene-Clark-Father-of-Americana-140407/default.htm

Surely one of the greatest writers of the 60's and early 70's, it seems that finally he may get some of the recognition his work deserves. It seems as if the DVD of this film is available for purchase.

"Full Circle Song'' from 1973's Roadmaster.
A nice little snapshot.
No drums required so Michael Clarke improvises.
Michael died at 47 from essentially the same causes as Gene.
On one interview,he is introduced as Gene's brother.
That overlooks the fact that his surname has an "E'' and that his original surname was Dick,not Clark.

Gram Parsons and his contribution to Sweetheart of The Rodeo enabled the Byrds to be the first "long haired hippies" to confront Nashville with the fact that there was another angle that could make a positive contribution to country music,and widen its listening audience.
Gene had a lifecycle 20 years longer than Gram,but his contribution to music,is by comparison to Gram's somewhat underrated,and for no good reason other than lack of knowledge.
As with Jimi Hendrix,Willie Nelson,Norton Buffalo,Ben Harper and Jimmy Carl Black,an artist with Native American bloodlines.
I am most interested in acquiring the DVD.
