This is a tribute CD featuring the music of Tim Hardin by Tim’s younger first cousin, Richard Hastings. Richard has recorded new fully produced arrangements of Tim’s songs spanning his entire career. With a light country flavor, Richard’s arrangements, rich vocals and skillful acoustic guitar work breathe new life into the classic songwriter’s material. Joined by some of Tim’s original band mates including John Sebastian and Mike Mainieri, this “labor of love” project has clearly brought Tim Hardin’s music back into the limelight.
This CD features classical and acoustic steel string guitars weaving innovative versions of Tim Hardin’s songs into master pieces joined by emotional vocals of rich country folk flavor. The band consists of steel guitar, dobro, banjo, harmonica, mandolin, keyboard, bass and drums. The best part is the vocals and harmonies setting the moods.
