Artist: Tiny Tim
Label: Ship To Shore Phonograph Co.
Tiny Tim's America began in 1974 when Tiny Tim recorded a rehearsal tape alone in his New York City hotel room. Now, the Ship To Shore PhonoCo. has reunited Tiny with his producer Richard Barone (I've Never Seen A Straight Banana: Rare Moments, Volume 1) and his cousin, pianist and arranger Eddie Rabin, to help Tiny complete the album he began 42 years ago! Featuring Tiny's renditions of a rich collection of turn of the century, Edison cylinder-era songs, Tiny Tim's America showcases Tiny at his best; free from the constraints of producers and studios, and displaying the breadth of his musical knowledge and true depth of his ability as a performer.
ALL ABOARD! Tiny Tim is taking us for a wild ride down the gramophone horn as he resurrects the sounds of yesteryear -- his way.
Includes a download card featuring the complete, unedited audio that Tiny recorded in 1974 and a four-page, full color booklet with liner notes from Barone, Rabin and Tiny Tim biographer Justin Martel and a collection of never-before-seen photos.
