What an album this song comes from the self Titled 'Tim Rose' from 1967. This is without doubt in my top 10 albums of all time. Everyone is a winner. Tim's version of 'Hey Joe' is apparently where Jimi Hendrix got his inspiration from. I honestly thought he was going to become a superstar after this album, but sadly his follow up 'Throught Rose Tinted Glasses' failed to live up to the expectations. It was a great disappointment. What a fabulous voice he had tho', and this track is chicken skin big time!.
I was going to see Tim up in London in the 2000's but sadly he passed away before I could see him,
I was still in school when this came out and a guy who lived over the fence from me told me he had the album. He said I could tape it at lunch time and he gave me the key to his house.(He took School dinners). I went into his house with my trusty Philips Tape Recorder and he had a thing called a radiogram (do you remember them) I had a direct connection,so the quality would be good (for these days). I was about to tidy up when suddenly the door opened, it was his Fireman father. I don't know whom was more shocked him or me. He certainly did not look too pleased. I bet my friend 'got it' when his father saw him.
'I had it' and I was not disappointed. You should try and get hold of this album especially if only to hear 'Morning Dew'. Here is his version of 'Hey Joe' a must hear also.
