New Album Review: "It'll Never Happen Again: A Tim Hardin Tribute" by Jeff Larson (9/10)

Singer-songwriter Jeff Larson does an exceptional job shedding new light on classic material from legendary troubadour Tim Hardin. Everyone from Rod Stewart and Bob Seger to Johnny Cash have covered Hardin’s catalog. And Larson is right up there with the best of them. He stridently captures the honest and conflicting sentiment of “Don’t Make Promises You Can’t Keep”, and his take on “Misty Roses” is dreamy and wistful. “How Can We Hang On To a Dream” has an engaging baroque feel. – Eric Harabadian
