Bird on a Wire is an album by folk artist Tim Hardin, released in 1971. It was Hardin's second release on Columbia Records. It peaked at No. 189 on the Billboard Pop Album charts and was his last album to make any of the charts. In contrast to Hardin's previous releases where he had written all his own material, Bird on a Wire includes cover songs four of the ten tracks. By this time, his drug addictions were beginning to take a larger toll on his live performances and songwriting output. It was also his last recording done in the U. .Bird on a Wire was re-issued on CD by Sony in 1989 and Sony Japan in 2005.

Tim Hardin 4 is an album by folk artist Tim Hardin, released in 1969. These early audition recordings done for Columbia in 1964 (which were ultimately rejected at that time) were not issued until 1969. The songs are in a straight blues style. A similar release was done by Atco on This is Tim Hardin.

Album · 1970 · 10 Songs. While Tim Hardin's own songs are outnumbered by covers here, Bird on a Wire features some of his most moving vocal performances. His haunting, airborne take on the title track is easily the most powerful version of the much-covered Leonard Cohen tune. And Hardin's famously fluid phrasing is at its jazziest, even on a country song like "A Satisfied Mind" or on the John Lee Hooker blues "Hoboin'," making a strong case for him as one of the most gifted interpreters of his generation. Bird On a Wire Tim Hardin.

Like a bird on a wire Like a drunk in a midnight choir I have tried in my way to be free Like a fish on a hook Like a knight from an old fashioned book I have saved all my ribbons with thee

Bird on the Wire" is one of Leonard Cohen's signature songs. It was recorded 26 September 1968 in Nashville and included on his 1969 album Songs from a Room. A May 1968 recording produced by David Crosby, titled "Like a Bird", was added to the 2007 remastered CD. Judy Collins was the first to release the song on her 1968 album Who Knows Where the Time Goes.

On Bird On A Wire, Tim Hardin returns to his roots with a smoky jazzy vocal delivery, supported by guitar, keyboards, bass, drums, percussion, vibes, cello, harp and pedal steel. Leonard Cohen's famous title track and songs like the cover of Satisfied Mind and his own composition Hoboin' display a poignant sense of longing. André Johray could be interpreted as autobiographical as it describes the turmoil and insecurity caused by fame. The only other artists I can think of that occasionally resemble Hardin's bluesy folk are Nina Simone and the band Palace Music on their album Viva Last Blues. To enjoy the best of Tim Hardin, I recommend the albums Reason To Believe: The Best Of, and The Essential Classic Hardin, 1963 - 1980.
