Roadmaster is a country rock album by Gene Clark from 1973. The album was compiled from various unreleased recordings for A&M Records made in 1970 through 1972, eight tracks yielded from an April 1972 recording session featuring Clarence White, Chris Hillman, Spooner Oldham, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, Byron Berline and Michael Clarke.[2] Two tracks derived from an unissued single reassembling the five original Byrds prior to their 1973 reunion album, "One in A Hundred" and "She's the Kind of Girl," and another an unused track "Here Tonight" had been recorded with The Flying Burrito Brothers.[2] The album is remarkable for featuring the original Byrds rhythm section (Chris Hillman and Michael Clarke) on all of its songs, despite being pieced together from multiple sessions. Initially released in the Netherlands only on the A&M subsidiary Ariola, it was reissued on compact disc for the American market in 1994.
