Another "Best Of"
on October 4, 2006
It seems a shame that so many of Timi's compilation albums all seem to contain many of the same tracks, with some being rerecordings. All of thse are wonderful, as this lovely little lady never made one bad record.
She really was blue eyed soul, and I don't think anyone has ever put such emotion on record. She was so underated, but why? She could sing the phone book and rip your heart out!
She cut an album called "Something bad on my mind" in London in the mid sixties, and it was one of her best, and yet it appears to be the only one never released on cd. Several tracks from it have been released on various compilations, but never the entire album. Please do all us fans a huge favour and put this album out on cd for us.
There is a company who will transfer any album to cd, but my copy of this particular album is far too valuable to risk sending it anywhere. The company in question told me it is virtually unobtainable, so, once again, please release it on cd.
We have lost Timi, but her voice will live on forever.She was unique, with perfect phrasing, and a voice that would melt the hardest of hearts. Her version of "Are you lonesome tonight" (not included here) makes Presley sound like an amateur!
I have everything Timi recorded on vinyl, but i am loathe to play them because they are far to precious, and I am scared they could be damaged as many are collectors items, but somehow cds don't have that feeling about them yet, and I don't mind how many times I play them. Those with the original albums and 45s will know what I mean.
