Retrieved 15 November Released in September , [C] No Other reached a disappointing peak of  on the Billboard charts without any active promotion from the label, barring the release of two promotional 7" vinyl singles: "No Other" and "The True One" in January ,   and "Life's Greatest Fool" backed with "From a Silver Phial" in March Geffen, however, disputed this claim, saying that it never happened. In later years, Clark remained disappointed with the lack of success achieved by No Other , which he deemed to be his masterpiece in several interviews.
According to [Gene's] brother David, '[Gene] put everything into that Heart, soul, money, everything he had he poured into that thing because it was going to be his reclamation, and when they killed it, it killed him. As stated on 4AD's website, the original tapes were remastered at Abbey Road Studios , featuring a 5.
All the studio tapes were forensically worked on and mixed by the duo of Gene Clark aficionado Sid Griffin and producer John Wood ; the extra tracks have not been edited or composited in any way, "allowing for everything to be heard exactly as it went down in the studio and before any overdubbing took place".
In October , Billboard declared the album to be "a magnificent effort" with Clark's "usual superb mix of country and rock tunes, his melodic vocals and his beautiful set of songs. AllMusic 's Thom Jurek praised the album; in a five-star review, Jurek called it "a sprawling, ambitious work that seamlessly melds country, folk, jazz-inflected-gospel, urban blues, and breezy L.
Little described the album as "deeply spiritual," "pure ear candy," and "a lush, lovely and even visionary work," awarding the album an A grade. Initially celebrated for its obscurity, No Other is now celebrated for its magnificence. It was in every way a magnum opus: epic, sprawling, poetic, choral, rococo. For Clark, who would surely have recognised William Blake as a spiritual progenitor, the road of excess had at last brought him to the palace of wisdom — and what a palace his is.
The deluxe edition reissue of No Other holds a 94 out of rating on Metacritic , indicating "universal acclaim," based on 12 reviews. As musical director of This Mortal Coil, the label's atmospheric act of the late '80s and early '90s, he included a couple of Clark compositions, including the No Other number 'Strength of Strings', on the band's albums.
Though Watts-Russell is no longer partnered in the company, Clark's record plainly remains part of 4AD's DNA, and that status led to the firm's in-depth, madly indulgent and frankly wonderful reintroduction of the '74 album in nearly every configuration imaginable".
In , British duo Soulsavers and vocalist Mark Lanegan performed a cover of "Some Misunderstanding", which appears on their album Broken. In , Victoria Legrand and Alex Scally of Beach House put together a band, named the Gene Clark No Other Band, for a four-concert tour where they performed the entire album to bring it to a new audience. Independent filmmaker Allison Anders , who maintains a Tumblr account, Greta's Records , about how she acquired the late actress Greta Garbo 's vinyl record collection, devoted a blog entry to how she found a copy of No Other among them.

I would have a pen and paper there, and a guitar or piano, and pretty soon a thought would come and I'd write it down or put it on tape. In most instances, after a day of meditation looking at something which is a very natural force, I'd come up with something. But Gene Clark actually went and did it.
