Tim Rose Recordings   Photo: Tim & me

Below are the albums I own or know about from assorted sources. Some are still available in vinyl or CD format, although access to them will depend on the country you are trying to buy them in. Before his death, Tim was working at trying to buy back the rights to all his material so that it could be re-released on CD. The first two albums were re-released on a single CD in 1997 and the next two (the Capitol and Playboy ones) were released, again on a single CD, in August 1998. As for availability nowadays, you may be more successful on the web than in local shops.

If you want information on how to get hold of CDs, take a look at the Record Sellers/Values page for details of some links to Internet record sellers - new and second-hand. You can also go to Tim's official website, where you can send for various CDs that Tim has made over the years. If you want to try to get material on vinyl, the best way is through second hand shops or record fairs, although his albums are becoming collectors' items and are not cheap. Gemm recently listed one rare album at 250. Because some tracks are completely unavailable on CD (and probably never will be) I've uploaded them onto this website for fans to download, in exchange for a small donation to Tim's favourite charity, the NSPCC.

Meanwhile, here's a full list of what Tim has recorded over the years, with production details, where available. Browse through this section for an album you want, then click to view details or, in certain cases, as indicated, go to Amazon for further information and the option of buying the CD or downloading the MP3. I have broken down the listings into sections: Original Studio Recordings, Live Albums, Combination Albums (2-for-1), Compilations, Collaborations, Other Formats.

Live Albums

Tim never released any live albums, as such, although there are eight live tracks on Haunted, recorded at the Royal Albert Hall and The Garage. Two live tracks also appear on The London Sessions.

There may be some pirated copies of live performances circulating, but there were no official recordings released.

Best of... Compilations
One compilation is listed in M C Strong's discography book: I've Gotta Get a Message to You (See For Miles, 1987). It doesn't (and never did) exist. Tim told me that one was scheduled, but never came to fruition. There is certainly a need for a compilation, although, in these days of MP3 downloads, I suppose people can pick-and-mix their own compilation, if they want.
