Intervention Records is thrilled to announce it's 180G LP of The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark featuring singer-songwriter Gene Clark and banjo genius Doug Dillard.

'The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark' is Intervention's first 180G LP to be pressed at Gotta Groove Records in Cleveland, Ohio. In addition to having a FIRM production schedule and shipping dates that we can absolutely rely on, GGR is the only plant we've found that we believe can meet or exceed our stringent quality standards. Matt Earley and his team press beautiful records, and all Intervention 180G LPs will be pressed using GrooveCoated stampers that preserve the high-frequency content of pressed LPs over pressing runs. One of the true and rare innovations in vinyl pressings in decades! What a time 1968 was for the burgeoning country rock scene! Gene Clark and Gram Parsons had introduced rock fans to some country flair with The Byrds' 'Sweetheart of the Rodeo.' After Sweetheart, Parsons broke auspicious new ground with The International Submarine Band (just a year before he'd make The Flying Burrito Brothers' 'The Gilded Palace of Sin'), while Gene Clark teamed with banjo genius Doug Dillard for this bluegrass classic, 'The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark.' The picking virtuosity of Dillard, Bernie Leadon and others on this LP meshes beautifully with Gene Clark's soulful vocal presence and guitar. The repertoire is endlessly fun and engaging, but punctuated with somewhat somber Clark offerings like 'She Darked the Sun' and 'Something's Wrong.' Country rock is familiar ground to Intervention fans, as we've already tackled greats from The Flying Burrito Bros., and Gene Clark's amazing solo effort 'White Light.' This is the roots of the music that paved the way for the Eagles and countless others.
