Format: 7"; Cat. No.: VS 1504; Year; 1966; Country: UK
Looking today at this 1966 debut from one Rock's lost souls - Tim Hardin. Released on Verve's Folkways imprint this features two achingly beautiful but ultimately hopeless songs, that in a way typify this singer's tragic life and the seemingly constant battle with drugs - in particular the big H.
The A Side gives you "Hang On To A Dream" - opening with a simple bit electric piano before developing into a waltz tempo. A really great song - and one that caught the ear of Francoise Hardy who cover it on her 'En Anglais' set released in 1968.
A sad end.
