In , Clark began work on a new single, recording two tracks with the original members of the Byrds each recording his part separately. The resulting songs, "She's the Kind of Girl" and "One in a Hundred", were not released at the time, because of legal problems; they were included later on the album Roadmaster.

Clark's compositions "Full Circle" and "Changing Heart" and the Neil Young covers on which he sang the lead vocal "See the Sky About to Rain" and "Cowgirl in the Sand" were widely regarded as the standout tracks on a record which received a critically divisive response.
Disheartened by the bad reviews and unhappy with Crosby's performance as the record's producer, the group members chose to dissolve the band. Clark briefly joined McGuinn's solo group, with which he premiered "Silver Raven", arguably his most celebrated post-Byrds song.
