Info for Thru Rose Colored Glasses (Remastered)
Tim Rose's November 1967 self-titled debut album "Tim Rose" did bugger all business chart-wise - but cast a huge shadow then and ever since.
Rose's self-titled debut is a fairly strong singer-songwriter set, divided about equally between originals and imaginative covers, showing strong blues and folk leanings as well as forays into orchestrated pop-rock. It includes "Morning Dew" and "Hey Joe." Beat Goes On's 1998 reissue appends Rose's follow-up, 1969's Through Rose Coloured Glasses.
The 12-track debut features the 10-sides of five 45s Rose put out prior to the album - so much of the material was known to Radio. Six are Tim Rose originals - "I Got A Loneliness", "Fare Thee Well", "You're Slipping Away From Me" and "Long Time Man" with "I Gotta Do Things My Way" a co-write between Rose and the Bassist Richard Hussan. Written by the songwriting duo Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil - the cover "I'm Gonna Be Strong" was a hit for Gene Pitney in 1965 while "Morning Dew" is by Bonnie Dobson (despite Rose' duo songwriting credit which would cause legal consternation for decades to follow). The legendary Doc Pomus co-wrote "King Lonely The Blue" with Bobby Andriani and it was issued by the Bitter End Singers in August 1965 on Emerald 72469 (called The Emeralds in the UK) - while "Eat, Drink And Be Merry..." is written by Celia and Sandra Ferguson and made a Country hit by Porter Wagoner. I don't know who 'N. Martin' is – the writer of "Where Was I?" - but it's a gorgeous song and the audio on it is fabulous.

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 a few years before she joined the Mamas and the Papas. Signed by Columbia in 1966, his 1967 debut album (which actually included a few previously released singles) is considered by far his most significant work. Two of the tracks were particularly noteworthy: his slow arrangement of "Hey Joe" inspired Jimi Hendrix's version and "Morning Dew," Rose's best original composition, became something of a standard, covered by the Jeff Beck Group, the Grateful Dead, Clannad, and others. Years later, though, it was debated as to whether Rose wrote the song, or whether folksinger Bonnie Dobson penned the original version. Some non-LP singles he recorded around this time have unfortunately never been reissued, and although he made several other albums up through the mid-'70s, none matched the acclaim of the first one. An influence on Nick Cave and others, Rose died on September 24, 2002. A posthumous album called Snowed In, which contains material Rose was working on in the last year of his life, was released in 2003 by Cherry Red Records. (Richie Unterberger, AMG)
