Clark Plays Guitar CD - Full-length album

This was Clark Colborn's first release as a solo artist, and for some bizarre reason he was talked into not using his actual name. Even his live band performed as "Clark Plays Guitar" for many years. Now you know why this website still bears the same name - ClarkPlaysGuitar.com - and if you want to know why this all came to be, well... there is a story & soon we'll post it somewhere on the new site. Meanwhile...

Clark Colborn has been hailed as a great guitarist for a very long time & this CD proves he's got the goods. Ripping solos. Driving riffs. Melodies that move your soul. Tone that makes other guitarists weak in the knees. It's all there. Guitar Player Magazine said "His tone comes on like Godzilla..." and said the music is "brilliantly schizoid." Click on the sound samples & check it out. Then order one for yourself and one for the guitar fan in your life. You'll be glad you did.

Again CD - Clark's second full-length CD

The second full-length album from Clark, “Again” is the follow-up release (with King’s X’s Ty Tabor serving as the mastering engineer) and it takes Colborn’s blend of guitar god sounds with progressive rock, metal and other genres to a new level. With “Again” Colborn says “I let the songs take control and go where they wanted to go. So I ended up with longer songs (the obvious single, 'Lie to Me,' is six and a half minutes long!), more complex arrangements (but they still flow and rock!), and vocals. I always try to write music that will flow, and rock, and hold the attention of the listener. Sometimes getting too technical can ruin that flow, but for intelligent listeners not being technical enough can make the music boring. I think this album really strikes a good balance.”

Frank Made Me Do It EP - 5 song EP

This EP is four original songs inspired by the amazing Frank Zappa & a cover of his tune "My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama." Of course, since it IS Clark Colborn doing this there will plenty of blistering guitar, just in a much more FZ type environment!

 

Here's what Clark says about this recording: "What can I say about this small, strange collection of tunes? Let’s start with this: Frank Zappa was a huge influence on me. His sense of absurdity, sense of humor, and total musical fearlessness totally captivated me, and over the years he has been an influence on me in more ways than I can describe. But – I have never tried to be a clone of Frank or to write music that sounded like him. I have always tried to be me, and just let the principles Frank embraced guide me at times when I felt lost. This has led to musical compositions that didn’t really fit with most of what I do as a solo artist stylistically. So they have gathered dust inside my brain. Until now. I humbly present to you four of my songs that FZ inspired me to write, plus a cover of his immortal “My Guitar Wants to Kill Your Mama.” Yes, these four tracks of mine are a little weird. Most importantly, they’re fun. They are a little crazy, musically, lyrically, or both, but it is not my fault, really. Frank made me do it."

Available in the standard format (CD plus standard insert) or the CPG Exclusive, Deluxe Special limited edition with a 12 page booklet, featuring rare photos, expanded track notes, & lyrics, plus an autographed guitar pick used by Clark in the making of Frank Me Do It.Special Edition booklet and pick
