This is Tim Hardin is an album by folk artist Tim Hardin, released in 1967.

These early recordings from approximately 1964 were not issued until 1967 when Hardin had achieved success with his albums for Verve. The songs are in a more straight blues style than his later folk, rock and pop stylings.

Allmusic 4.5/5 stars [1]

In his review for Allmusic, music critic Richie Unterberger wrote "The material isn't nearly as distinctive as the best of Hardin's work, but the performances rank with Dave Van Ronk and Fred Neil as the best white blues/acoustic folk to emerge from the early-'60s Greenwich scene... it's still well worth tracking down."[1]
