CD Reviews

A terrific songsmith
Peter Baklava | Charles City, Iowa | 06/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Unless one's name was Dylan, Baez, Guthrie, or Collins, folk artists in the 1960's had a rough time of it in the USA. There were a group of folkies ( David Ackles, Tim Rose, Tim Hardin, and Fred Neil among them ) whose songs were mined for hits with great success by Rock performers--and who still never became famous.

I knew of Tim Hardin on the strength of "Hang on to A Dream", which the Nice made into a big production, and was probably the most beautiful piece that Keith Emerson ever played. Rod Stewart did a fabulous version of "Reason to Believe".

As good as those two songs are in their original versions, every other song on this collection is just as stellar. After hearing just a couple of these tunes, you will realize that Tim Hardin was a huge influence on Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young, and especially Stephen Stills.

Tim Hardin did not have the greatest voice in the world, but he knew how to write great, unpretentious songs. There are few frills here--reportedly, Hardin was unhappy with what did get overdubbed, and would have preferred no string arrangements at all.

Listening to this album, I still find myself marveling, wondering how Hardin came up with songs that are so simple yet so profound. These are some of the best songs ever written in the 20th Century. They will endure forever."

"I saw Tim Hardin sing and he was as good in person as he is on this album. The songs are not only believable but every
song is sung so wonderfully you might miss how gut wrenching the story is. Tim was way ahead of his times. What a loss when
he died. He had so much talent and not many people even know
about him today. Rod Stewart cut Reason to Believe as his A side
instead of Maggie May in 1973. This Cd is special. Do no miss out.

A MUSIC LEGEND...

"In the late sixties, early seventies, I had a Tim Hardin LP album that I played to death. It was my all time favorite LP. As technological advances were made and CDs came to the fore, it was consigned to a box with all my other LP albums. I was, therefore, thrilled to find this CD with all my Tim Hardin favorites. I was not disappointed by it. It is, without a doubt, my favorite CD.

Tim Hardin was a very gifted musician, singer, and songwriter. His music is a celebration of the human spirit which is ironic, considering that his own life ended so tragically from a drug over dose. His songs often sung by others, Tim Hardin did it best. A cornucopia of emotion and sound, there is not a bad song on this entire CD. It is quintessential Tim Hardin.

While some purists may object to the orchestral arrangement on this CD, it only enhances already great music. What makes it unique is Tim Hardin himself, a truly gifted artist with no equal. A folksinger who shaded his music with blues and jazz overtones, Tim Hardin sang with a poignancy that will touch your heart. At times romantic and lyrical, other times positively soulful, Tim Hardin was an original.

When he sang his music, Tim Hardin spoke to your very soul. It is this quality, and not the musical arrangement, that makes his music transcend the passage of time."
