Product Description

Sixties singer-songwriter Tim Hardin possessed a distinctive folk-rock voice, but he often got more recognition through other artists' interpretations of his material. Black Sheep Boy--An Introduction To Tim Hardin gives a fantastic overview of Hardin's awesome songwriting talents and legacy. Cherry-picked from Hardin's Verve and Polydor years, this collection draws together some of his more thoughtful tracks, many of which have since been covered by the likes of Rod Stewart, Paul Weller, Scott Walker, The Four Tops, Ron Sexsmith and Mark Lanegan to name but a few. Hardin is often name-checked as having influenced many of today's contemporary chart acts.

Format: Audio CD
Although this album is called "an introduction", it does in fact include much of the work from Tim Hardin's most creative period - only enthusiasts need go further. Tim's writing was mainly autobiographical and the album mirrors the underlying melancholy evident in his personal life. One of his greatest strengths was the simple, but poignant, love song - "Misty Roses" and "Hang On To A Dream" are prime examples of this. Regret is also a theme, as in "It'll Never Happen Again", tinged with the confessional, as in "Red Balloon". However, it was Tim's pleading voice and minor chord guitar accompaniment which was his defining trademark, and this is well represented. Oddly, "If I Were A Carpenter" is not included on the album, which Tim wrote and which was a hit for Bobby Darin. Otherwise, the collection is an excellent selection from one of the sixties' most talented but most underrated singer songwriters.

I waited quite a while to find this CD but it was well worth the wait.
I first heard Tim Hardin's own version of Hang Onto A Dream in the late 60s on a pirate radio station and was enchanted, however being quite young I was limited in being able to trace music I loved. The man had a haunting voice and - I felt- could sing anything.

Now nearly 50 years later I own this CD which has been worth the wait. Although it is quite an old one it hasn't aged. My husband (who had never heard of him) really enjoyed the music and agreed with me - the man was out of his time.
If you haven't heard him, try it. You won't be disappointed.
