Axol's current selection is:
If I Were A Carpenter
by Tim Hardin
#FiftyYearsAgo #Celebrating1967 No. 20

The lead track on his 1967 album "Tim Hardin 2" and written by him, it was a hit the previous year by Bobby Darin. The album is just filled with fabulous songs, more so even than his first album "Tim Hardin 1" which is also very good. Beware of the 1967 album "this is Tim Hardin" which is a release by his previous record label Columbia trying to cash in on his first flush of success. It is a collection of old Blues of demo quality and undistinguished.

This song has been covered by almost everybody - The Four Tops, Joan Baez, Rod Stewart, etc. Anybody in the late sixties who could sing a bit and play guitar a bit knew this song off by heart. Wherever you went you could hear it ringing out in pub backrooms, family parties and anywhere the sentiments of the song were valued. He performed this at the 1969 Woodstock Festival but heroin addiction took over his life and he died of an overdose in 1980.
