Tim's third release is called 'Opal' and hit the streets in January 2006. It is more of an anthology than a record. With 17 tracks, it is a great value for the money! It's a solo record in a way because all the material is Tim Houlihan's; however, many talented people were involved in making this dream come true. It's a broader mix of acoustic and electric music than other records as it includes several tunes with horns, jazz vibraphone, and strong vocal arrangements.
