Tim Moore

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Joe Viglione
Tim Moore is a pop maestro, and the ten songs on Tim Moore, mostly copyrighted 1972 and 1973, have an exquisite understanding of pop structure and melody. The mystery here is how "Love Enough" escaped Rita Coolidge, Barry Manilow, Helen Reddy, or anyone seeking a hit during the '70s explosion of pop songs on the radio. It would have been perfect for Kenny Rogers, come to think of it. Russ Kunkel is on drums on that tune, as well as "A Fool Like You," arranger Tom Sellers providing the bass accompaniment on those two tracks.

All Music Guide - Joe Viglione
Tim Moore is a pop maestro, and the ten songs on Tim Moore, mostly copyrighted 1972 and 1973, have an exquisite understanding of pop structure and melody. The mystery here is how "Love Enough" escaped Rita Coolidge, Barry Manilow, Helen Reddy, or anyone seeking a hit during the '70s explosion of pop songs on the radio. It would have been perfect for Kenny Rogers, come to think of it. Russ Kunkel is on drums on that tune, as well as "A Fool Like You," arranger Tom Sellers providing the bass accompaniment on those two tracks. "Aviation Man" is a real departure with some Cajun blues thrown into the garage rock mix -- it is the artist stretching out and moving away from the serious pop of "Second Avenue" and "Charmer." Released on A Small Record Company, distributed by Gulf & Western's publishing division, Famous Music Company, the album was picked up by Asylum records the same year, and finally released on CD in 2002 via the people at Edsel. "When You Close Your Eyes" has that bouncy pop that Three Dog Night could've done a great job with -- this album is brimming with hooks and melodies, a smorgasbord of sound. The understated production by Nick Jameson, who also plays drums on "Aviation Man," is just perfect for the performer. "I'll Be Your Time" brings thoughts of Randy Edelman, David Pomeranz, and other '70s songwriters to mind, that stark vocal against a sparse piano/guitar/drum/bass backing which doesn't get in the way. Moore's voice really plucks at the heart strings, a naïve Dan Fogelberg who should have had multiple tunes on hit radio. Tom Sellers' string arrangements are also underplayed, which is a good thing. Sellers takes control from the very first track, "A Fool Like You," the words, vocals, and musicianship all very direct. As with the songs of Buzzy Linhart, there's an immediate charm to this material. Fans of Harriet Schock's classic debut Hollywood Town would find this collection very, very appealing; it could be the East Coast male counterpart to Hollywood Town.

    Jenny Come Lately

    I was captivated by "Second Avenue" when it was released in the 1970s but never bought the album. Now, years later, I searched for the song, bought the Tim Moore CD, and have listened to it repeatedly. I am stunned by the emotional power of his voice and his words--plus his command of the keyboard, guitar and bass. What a talent! I'd like to see Clay Aiken record "Second Avenue."

    Lost Classic

    Tim Moore should have been a major artist. His vocal and instrumental skills are incredible. ''Tim Moore'' contains a truck full of musical gems that deserved to be heard by many ears.

    Incredible Songwriter

    Why this artist never made it big I will never know. Tim Moore has the melodic and lyrical gift of Lennon - McCartney in his best tunes. Great craft and memorable tunes. A great balladeer AND he can rock! Reedy tenor voice and multi instrumental skills to die for. Classic singer-songwriter. Every song is a gem. Will someone please re-record ''A Fool Like You''?
