- Only Colombe/ The French Girl
- Artist: Gene Clark
- Format: 7" Single
- Release Date: 5/27/2008
Gene Clark became the first member of a major U.S. rock band to go solo when he left the Byrds and released his stirring 1966 debut LP Gene Clark with the Gosdin Brothers. Clark then cut a pair of sparkling, Gary Usher-produced/Curt Boettcher-arranged tracks 'The French Girl' and 'Only Colombe' as his final single for Columbia, a release that was unfathomably canceled at the 11th hour by the label, thus robbing the world of this glistening, baroque-pop gem. Sundazed is overjoyed to restore these tracks, taken from the original mono Columbia masters, to their proper place in the universe: as the two-sided single that should have made Gene Clark a huge star in his own right!
