About This Discography
This discography covers all non-Byrds releases by Gene Clark. The Discography Chapter also contains a Byrds Discography, covering releases by the Byrds as a band, a Flying Burrito Brothers Discography, covering releases by that group, and discographies for each of the other Byrds, which you can reach using the Navigation Bar at the top or bottom of the page.
This discography has been assembled from about a dozen sources. It covers only the US and UK. All releases are in both US and UK except where noted. Information is for the US release, except where a release is in the UK only. US chart listings reflect peak positions on Billboard chart. Identical reissues are generally not included. Compilations are placed at the end of the period they compile. Live releases are placed at the time of the performance.
