He signed to the Verve Forecast label, and produced his first authorised album, "Tim Hardin 1" in 1966.

In 1969, one of Hardin's few commercial successes occurred with a cover version of a Bobby Darin-penned folk song: "A Simple Song Of Freedom." Hardin did not tour in support of this album and a heroin addiction and stage fright made his live performances erratic. An album entitled This is Tim Hardin, featuring covers of "House of the Rising Sun", Fred Neil's "Blues on the Ceilin'" and Willie Dixon's "Hoochie Coochie Man", among others, appeared in 1967, on the ATCO record label. The liner notes indicate the songs were recorded in 1963-64, well prior to the release of Tim Hardin 1 by Verve Records.
