|Tim Hardin received a peer review by Wikipedia editors, which is now archived. It may contain ideas you can use to improve this article.|
This is my first contribution. I struggled with the format. Mention of a lot of albums was left out because I couldn't figure out how to format everything. Should I have entered the information that I gathered about his wife and child? If so would it be best to try for a chronological order or seperate things as much as possible. There dosent seem to be a consistent style to articles for similiar artists. I tried to keep it as dry as possible.
- Good thing you kept it "dry". I would not have been able to. Hardin's "Red Balloon" is something from my childhood I will never forget. I must have been 11 or so. First time I discovered I could truly understand English (not my native language). First time also, perhaps, that I was really moved by a piece of poetry in *any* language. To be honest: I was absolutely shot in the heart with the tragedy of those lyrics. The way it made me feel, never went away and it became part of my personality. I remember I taped the song on the old small reel tape recorder I had, wrote out the song's lyrics, memorizing them. I'm now a better man for it, I'm sure. Sorry for rambling.
- I hope someone is going to write more about Tim. I would if I could because I owe something to this artist. 22.214.171.124 23:27, 29 July 2005 (UTC)
I've added a mention that Red Balloon was also covered by Kula Shaker in 1996 as a B side to one of their single releases. Great version. I will now have to check out Tim Hardin's original, which I have never heard. Ionlyhaveonename (talk) 22:49, 16 November 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:Timhardin.jpg
It's a shame the pics got knocked out. Fair use would support at least one non-free image.
Additional cover for 'If I Were A Carpenter'
Please Note: Didn't Kris Kristofferson cover 'If I were a carpenter' and sing it on either the 'Ed Sullivan Show' or the 'Johnny Cash Show'?
I think this section is out of hand. Everyone and their brother does a Hardin song, no matter how minor the act, or how minor the song. What if there were such a section in other composer's bios who are much more famous? Each song that has its own page should suffice for mention of who has covered it. A statement that Hardin has had many covers of his songs and examples of some who had great success with them... that should be enough. What say you? Airproofing (talk) 15:38, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
