5.0 out of 5 stars London Sessions
How this man never became a mega-star is a mystery.
Excellent song writer and musician.
Good example of him at his best.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rose revived, 26 Nov 2007
This review is from: The London Sessions (Audio CD)
Remembered best for his chilling cover of the anti-war epic "Come Away Melinda", the story goes that this late, talented American singer-songwriter's return to his future adopted home was spurred on by fan and believer, producer Pierre Tubbs. Rose sounds pretty much as he should on these sessions. Drugs and alcohol had taken their toll and the deep voice is tarred by strong French cigarettes, yet he shoulders the workload and delivers a set that crosses some meaty covers of perennials ("The Rose", "Over The Rainbow") with new interpretations of old songs (including his "Hey Joe" picked up by Jimi Hendrix) and newcomers. The performance is true to the seminal recordings that made his name in the late 60s and early 70s. Previously unreleased "Lady's Coming Home For Christmas" reveals his black humour and bonus tracks in two little-heard live originals measure the value of the revitalised Rose of the 1990s, who - cleaned-up and writing again - would perform with Robert Plant and Nick Cave amongst other major artists influenced by his work. A revealing dip into the story of a wayward soul, who made it back.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Rose by any other name., 29 April 2014

This review is from: The London Sessions (Audio CD)
I bought Tim Rose "the London Sessions" after reading several reviews of the record. I found it VERY ordinary and fail to see what all the fuss is about.I have listened to it once but I don't feel inclined to rush back for a second listen. Disappointing!

I only know Tim Rose from 'Morning Dew', so was curious to hear more.
I need to give the CD more play to properly make my mind up.
