Tim Hardin

"Hang on to a Dream: The Verve Recordings"





















Double-CD set of 47 tracks that Hardin recorded for Verve between 1964 and 1966. His expressive, blues-inflected vocals and confessional songwriting are heard on covers and famous compositions like "If I Were a Carpenter," "Lady Came From Baltimore," and "Reason to Believe." The compilation includes every studio recording that Hardin released on the Verve label, as well as two alternate takes and 15 previously unreleased tracks. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Thanks for this essential collection (and your wonderful blog).

In the early 60s, Tim Hardin recorded an unaccompanied set for Atlantic, released as "This is Tim Hardin", one of the most breathtaking folk-blues records to come out of this era. Or any era, for that matter. A few of the songs recorded for Verve ("Danville Dame", "Hoochie Coochie Man", "House of the Rising Sun", "I Can't Slow Down") appear here in just-the-man-and-his-guitar versions that immediately make you forget its Verve counterparts. And "Blues on the Ceilin'" is so haunting it still makes the little hairs on my neck stand up after 40 years of repeated listening.

I've uploaded this gem here:

Thanks again and keep up the good work!
