With Love and Kisses from Tiny Tim: Concert in Fairyland

Remember Tiny Tim? If you don't, he was an odd looking (but very entertaining) man who played the ukulele and appeared on such shows as "Laugh-In" and "The Ed Sullivan Show" in the late 60's. He had a big hit with "Tip-Toe Through the Tulips", which became his signature song. This was actually his second album, released in 1968. However it was an unauthorized release that, according to a Tiny Tim website, was actually recorded in 1962 and pushed back into release when Tiny Tim became famous. It's really not that bad, except that whoever put it together wanted it to sound like a live album so they dubbed in audience cheers and applause. The trouble is, they WAY overdid it. It sounds like the Beatles, Elvis, and Hulk Hogan winning the final game of the World Series (or the World Cup if you're not from the U.S.)!

Here's the track list:
  1. Oh, How I Miss You Tonight
  2. Let Me Call You Sweetheart
  3. On the Good Ship Lollipop
  4. Secret Love
  5. Animal Crackers
  6. Indian Love Call
  7. Don't Take Your Love from Me
  8. If I Didn't Care
  9. You Make Me Feel So Young
  10. I Got a Pain in My Sawdust
  11. Be My Love
  12. Toot-Toot-Tootsie

Thanks,I enjoyed this posting. Not many people realize that Tiny Tim had a vast musical knowledge, from contemporary songs to 17th century titles. He would break out his ukelele and start singing for anyone who would listen. He was a unique talent. If you have other titles to post, I would love to hear them.

this was a live album most likely recorded at Steve Paul's scene, a small venue. If you listen closely you can hear the actual audience through all that added garbage
