    God Bless Tiny Tim


    50th Anniversary Edition In Pink Colored Vinyl


    Limited To 900 Copies


    First-Ever Vinyl Reissue In The U.S


    If you think, based on "Tiptoe Thru' the Tulips
    with Me" and his nationally televised marriage
    to Miss Vicki on The Tonight Show, that Tiny
    Tim was a mere novelty act, think again. Behind
    that ukulele, pasty white make-up, falsetto, and
    prominent proboscis was a serious scholar of
    American music, perhaps the only performer of
    the '60s (and certainly the only performer of his
    age group) 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. Even with all that talent, though, had Tiny Tim
    just made a straight '20s trad jazz/pop/folk album for his debut record, God Bless Tiny Tim
    would not be the stone-cold cult classic it is today. But the album married Tim's innate
    eccentricity with stupendously lush production from Richard Perry, who was fresh from
    working on Captain Beefheart's debut, Safe as Milk, and would go on to produce everybody
    from Diana Ross to Rod Stewart.


    With Perry's production, and Artie Butler's arrangements,
    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), full of non sequiturs both verbal and musical (like the cover of
    Sonny Bono's "I Got You Babe"). 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. This record belongs in any serious-or not-soserious!-record
    collection.
