iTunes Review

It’s all too typical that previously unreleased Tim Rose recordings began hitting the market in the years after his death in 2002. Had these albums seen the light of the day while he was able to capitalize on the momentum, maybe he would have had a stronger resurgence that would have buoyed his spirits and kept him alive. As it stands, these 12 recordings are of varying but very good quality. Only three new songs appear here—“It’s All Gone Wrong,” “Borocat (Yo Tengo Amore Te),” and “The Answer”—but covers of The Bee Gees’ “I Started a Joke,” Bette Midler’s hit “The Rose,” the perennial “Over the Rainbow," and Buddy Holly’s “I Guess It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” show that Rose’s interpretive skills hadn’t left him through the years of inactivity. (Some arrangements are more muffled than necessary—that's more the fault of these recordings being demos than anything else.) A new version of “Hey Joe,” which Rose had first recorded on his 1967 self-titled debut album, adds trip-hop beats, suggesting that Rose and his producer had cocked an ear toward Portishead. 

Customer Reviews

American Son by Tim Rose

This is one of the last gasps of an legendary singer. The voice was not as solid as in the early sixties but it was still distinctive and great. It brings tears to my eyes when I think of his lost opportunities, I love this album, but I love Tim Rose. To hear him at his best at the end, buy his "Haunted" album. But here, listen to "Because she is rich"' , "Tiger in Cages" and "She was Born to Fly". If you get into Tim, you will truly enjoy this album. Listen to him and you will find out why he was a legend in England.

A nearly forgotten singer/songwriter of the '60s, Tim Rose's early work bore a strong resemblance to another Tim working in Greenwich Village around 1966-1967 -- Tim Hardin. Rose also favored a throaty blues folk-rock style with pop production flourishes, though he looked to outside material more, wasn't quite in Hardin's league as a singer or songwriter, and had a much harsher, even gravelly vocal tone. Before beginning a solo career, Rose had sung with Cass Elliott in the folk trio the Big Three...
