The Gosdin Brothers ' obscure LP Sounds of Goodbye is an overlooked country-rock milestone, and one that owes as much to the sound of the era Byrds as it does to country music. That's unsurprising, perhaps, given that the Gosdins helped out a lot on Gene Clark 's debut solo album inand sometimes shared bills with the early Byrdsas they shared the same management.
In truth, this will appeal far more to the early Byrds fan than to the straight country fan. That's not damning with faint praise, far from it; it's actually high praise. It's a fair guess, too, that anyone who likes Gene Clark 's early work will enjoy this record, as it has a similar low-key, hurt, vulnerable mystique to the melodies, vocals, and harmonies. The material, though sometimes average, is also sometimes outstanding, as on "Love at First Sight," which actually comes quite close to the classic Byrds jangle rock sound; the melancholy, graceful "She's Gone," with the kind of unexpected compelling chord changes you'd expect from the Gene Clark songwriting school; and "The Victim," with its pungent burned-by-love lyrics, and an Ke Kali Nei Au (The Wedding Song) - Various - Hawaii though not displeasing dash of psychedelic echo on the chorus.
