Tim Hardin

Listen: Black Sheep Boy / Tim Hardin

Been meaning to post more double siders like this Tim Hardin one. Not official double A’s, but worthy of.

There’s literally not a bad song this guy ever wrote and recorded for Verve. The amount of other artists who have covered his stuff being proof, if plain old listening isn’t enough. Even the live album TIM HARDIN 3 LIVE IN CONCERT, a format I’m generally not fond of, is an exception in his case.

Listen: Misty Roses / Tim Hardin

And when it comes to covers, ‘Misty Roses’ has plenty. Hard to pick a favorite, but in front of a firing squad, I’d opt for Colin Blunstone’s.

Not to say the original isn’t a masterpiece.
