Tim Hardin arrived in Los Angeles, from New York, in late 1964. Like fellow singer songwriters before him, he immediately gravitated to 'The Troubadour' club where record producer Jim Dickson held 'court' at the club's bar. Jim had a knack for spotting potential artists (the Byrds) who he could record and promote in his role as staff producer for Elektra, World Pacific and even Warner Bros. Records. Jim had 'carte blanche' access to the World Pacific Records studio where he recorded these budding singer songwriters. Tim Hardin was such an artist. These session tapes, recorded on the studio's Ampex 300, three track machine, were missing until now. These tapes were unearthed recently and gives us a glimpse of a raw Tim Hardin. They include three songs never before heard, let along copyrighted. Two additional songs were recorded later by the Kingston Trio's manager, Frank Werber. Like Dickson, he was also on the look out for new singer songwriter talent. Tim Hardin's Lost In L.A. adds to the canon of the area's contribution to popular music.
