Yep, I did it. I listened to Tiny Tim's first album. All the way through, tulips and all. And I'd do it again, dammit!
Tiny Tim is known for being a goofy, eclectic, vibrato-falsetto-singing, ukelele-playing weirdo that kind of looks like Russell Brand. But clearly there is a bit more to it than that... based on the strange set of covers on this disc he must have a pretty wide knowledge of old pop and jazz music, as well as much more of a vocal range than people realize. He even rocks some low, baritone-ish vocals in a few of the songs.
There is a lot of talking on this record, which adds to its cheesiness pretty heavily.
It's silly, and it sounds ridiculous. But there is something about Tiny Tim and his music that I can't help but kind of like. I have no fucking clue why. Pretty cool album, and I'm curious to hear what he was doing a few albums later...
