Timmothy "Strange But True" 1972

Freak Emporium:
Very limited new release on Rockadelic of this loner/rural rock/folk album from 1972. The feel is similar to early Neil Young with soulful vocals, great songs and a mixture of electric and acoustic guitar. The songs are what makes this album really work however and a desolate protest vibe permeates throughout giving the material it's distinct and timeless flavour..


Acid Archives:
Post-Blues Company rural hippie folkrock LP with a bluesy undercurrent. Notable Neil Young influence on an album that's not at all as strange or eccentric as made out to be, could have been a major label item. Excellent opening track is a rather clever marriage of "Down By The River" and "Wooden Ships". The rest shows Timmothy trying out various loner folk and swampy folkblues moves, although the songwriting tends to be somewhat lacking and the personality isn't arresting enough to compensate. If you're in the right late-night mood this may sound quite atmospheric, at other times the two-chord drone and lack of hooks may annoy. Not a great album to my ears but should appeal to genre fans, and clearly better than LPs such as Geoffrey and Georgie Leonard. [PL]

Stark-sounding singer/songwriter album with a very obvious Neil Young fixation. I think it's best when it's at its most electric, but even the mellow stuff is better than most in the genre. The album has a deep, personal feel to it and it will connect with the right listener. [AM]
