==== PARK AVE CDs: Orlando's Finest Music Emporium! ====

Complete anthology of 1968-1971 recordings by highly regarded British singer/songwriter Tim Hollier. Comprises all three albums from the period, non-LP single cuts, BBC recordings and previously unreleased tracks salvaged from a one-known-copy Apple acetate. Recorded at the height of the late 60s/early 70s singer/songwriter boom, Tim Hollier's three albums - 'Message To A Harlequin', 'Tim Hollier' and 'Skysail' - went largely under the radar at the time but are now extremely collectable. Guest on the opening night of a Beckenham folk club run by his friend David Bowie, Hollier recorded his first and third albums with the assistance of Donovan arranger John Cameron, while his self-titled second set - considered by many pundits to be his strongest - featured backing from a small, sympathetic rock group. Hollier was a regular on London's folk club circuit for several years alongside the likes of Paul Simon, Al Stewart and Nick Drake, but retired from live work after a disastrous, drug- impeded performance at the Queen Elizabeth Hall in January 1972. He continued to record sporadically throughout the remainder of the decade before moving (with great success) into the world of music publishing - by which point his trio of late Sixties/early Seventies albums had attracted belated acclaim on the collector network. A 3CD set, 'Time Has A Way Of Losing You: The Tim Hollier Anthology' naturally includes all three of those albums in full and adds a non-album single, a handful of BBC radio performances and five previously unissued tracks, taped at a March 1969 Wigmore Hall show that was cut to an Apple label acetate. With some fabulous period-piece photos (including shots of Bowie performing mime at Wigmore Hall as Hollier played), 'Time Has A Way Of Losing You' is an essential purchase for aficionados of vintage singer/songwriter fare.
