|TINY TIM GOD BLESS TINY TIM (50TH ANNIVERSARY) Limited Edition Pink Vinyl LP
Behind that ukulele, pasty white make-up, falsetto, and prominent proboscis was a serious scholar of American music, perhaps the only performer of the Ď60s keeping the torch alive for songs from vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley. Tim (born Herbert Buckingham Khaury) also was blessed with a stupendous vocal range, from baritone to his trademark falsetto, and was adept on not just ukulele but guitar, mandolin, and violin.
The album married Timís innate eccentricity with stupendously lush production from Richard Perry, who was fresh from working on Captain Beefheartís debut, Safe as Milk, and would go on to produce everybody from Diana Ross
to Rod Stewart.
God Bless Tiny Tim featured an incredible assortment of instruments, from didgeridoo to koto to celeste to tympani, with nary a ukulele to be found on many of the tracks. Furthermore, the album was sprinkled with some of the
psychedelic fairy dust that was in the air at the time (1968). The result: an album that stands outside of time, defying categorization or description.
Now, to celebrate its 50th anniversary, Real Gone Music is releasing God Bless Tiny Tim on LP for the first time since its original issue in the U.S. in a pink vinyl edition limited to 900 copies.
