Brilliant work from Tim Hardin – an album recorded for Columbia after his years on Verve
, showing him still growing as an artist, moving past the folksy style of early hits, into a broadly-expressed singer/
songwriter mode, one that shows traces of Nick Drake, Fairport Convention, and other folk rock luminaries of the time. Featuring shorter tracks and a few covers, Bird On A Wire shows Hardin still capable of proudly expressed tunes in a more conventional mode. Titles include "First Love Song", "Everything Good Become More True", "Loneliness She Knows", "Magician", "Susan", "Love Hymn", "Andre Johray", "If I Knew", and "Soft Summer Breeze".
