Tim Hardin's third album (not counting This Is Tim Hardin, the compilation of early demos released by Atco) was a live one, recorded at The Town Hall in New York City in the spring of 1968. It featured many songs that had appeared on his first two records, including well-known numbers such as "Reason To Believe" and "If I Were A Carpenter", plus a number of new songs. His acoustic guitar was backed by a group of mostly jazz musicians - pianist Warren Bernhardt, guitarist Daniel Hankin, vibraphone player Mike Mainieri, bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Donald McDonald. With this talented band and with Hardin's voice at its very best, the album presented the songs in splendid new arrangements - loose, fluid and organic. These might very well be the best recordings to convey Hardin's remarkable talents as both a singer and songwriter.
