Tim Hardin

A gentle, soulful singer who owed as much to blues and jazz as folk, Tim Hardin produced an impressive body of work in the late '60s without ever approaching either mass success or the artistic heights of the best singer/songwriters. When future Lovin' Spoonful producer Erik Jacobsen arranged for Hardin's first recordings in the mid-'60s, Hardin was no more than an above-average white blues singer, in the mold of many fellow folkys working the East Coast circuit. By the time of his 1966 debut, however, he was writing confessional folk-rock songs of considerable grace and emotion. The first album's impact was slightly diluted by incompatible string overdubs (against Hardin's wishes), but by the time of his second and best LP, he'd achieved a satisfactory balance between acoustic guitar-based arrangements and subtle string accompaniment. It was the lot of Hardin's work to achieve greater recognition through covers from other singers, such as Rod Stewart (who did "Reason to Believe"), Nico (who covered "Eulogy to Lenny Bruce" on her first album), Scott Walker (who sang "Lady Came From Baltimore"), Fred Neil ("Green Rocky Road" has been credited to both him and Hardin), and especially Bobby Darin, who took "If I Were a Carpenter" into the Top Ten in 1966. Beleaguered by a heroin habit since early in his career, Hardin's drug problems became grave in the late '60s; his commercial prospects grew dimmer, and his albums more erratic, although he did manage to appear at Woodstock. His end was not a pretty one: due to accumulated drug and health problems, as well as a scarcity of new material, he didn't complete any albums after 1973, dying of a drug overdose in 1980. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi

I guess Bob Dylan hailed him as one of greatest song writers he's ever met. He also was a friend of Jimi Hendrix. Tim has a son, but he's not into performing.

I also heard Tim in the sixties, I was a singer as well. When I heard his voice I would just start crying. There was something so painful in him, I guess I related to him. His voice and the way he expressed the lyrics, I can't say how much I enjoy his music. He was amazing, I love his style

Again, another story about a great artist plagued by his heroine habit. "The needle and the damage done."

I LOVE Tim Hardin he was a soulful heartfelt singer and musician believe me he knew his music.. but heroine seems to have been the drug of choice for all these late music players and when you think about it...
The human soul is sooooo complex they needed an escape from all the bedlam around them..That was it but it was the end for them too.YOU play YOU pay! I am a singetr myself that never made it ( I am excellent)
I know the meaning of PAIN... but noone cares or knows... It' The B L U E S !

Saw him in the Village in 1969 at a small club I can't remember. When he came on stage it was obvious he was high, but still it was one that I will always remember. He is an all time favorite.

Taking a trip down Memory Lane - listening to Tim Harden 1 on Verve pops & cracks & all. What an incredible talent. What a terrible shame. None of the Hardin songs that were hits - like Rod Stewart & Bobby Darin were anywhere near his own performance on the record. There are so many great songs on this album. I'm going to go watch the video, Herb.

I've been a Hardin fan since someone turned me on to his music in 1968. It's a crying shame that his voice has gone.

I saw Tim perform in Toronto back in 1970?...some w h e r e along there...smal l club, he was terrific, melodic, poetic, sensitive, creative and like a lot of us....seemed to drip with melancholy. I wish he had not suffered quite so much.

Sitting in a tiny Greenwich Village apartment in 1966, listening to Tim Hardin, amazed at "How Can We Hang On to a Dream," "Misty Roses," the soft beauty of his songs and his mind, both the same. We all thought so, baby hippies, one and all. His beautiful mind shone through all those songs. Only a man in too much pain with too much knowledge could write those songs. When I recently signed up for Tim Harden radio I felt as if I'd died and gone to back-then heaven. Thank you, Pandora.

For a short time I managed Tim.I was involved in the making of This Is Tim Hardin done in Boston the year before he Jacobsen deal I made. EVERYONE in the Village considered Tim to be the best of them all. We were all sad that he was falling apart. Yet when you heard even an erratic set, you could forgive him anything for the great moments that occurred. On my myspace.com/ h e r b g a r t site, I have a video of Tim singing If I Were A Carpenter. It's in the Comments. love him and miss him.

His "If I Were A Carpenter" has haunted me for forty years and you guys put me in touch with how to get some of his work. "Reason to Believe" is also a milestone in American music, I gotta have them both. Thanks Pandora, allot.
