To celebrate the release of his notably personal new album Tooth & Nail today, the outspoken, political singer-songwriter talks Colm McAuliffe through his top records


Tim Hardin - 2
It was easier to find Tim Hardin records than it was to find Woody Guthrie records in the 1970s. I'm a huge Dylan fan and Tim Hardin kinda stands in for Dylan - he doesn't get much attention, but he's an incredible songwriter and I often find myself playing his songs in soundchecks. The key things that I liked about this album, five of the tracks are less than two minutes long.
