I think most of us have heard of Tiny Tim, the ukelele player who gained fame in the late 60s and 70s. He was a very creepy, asexual man who mostly sang in falsetto and got married on the Johnny Carson Show. He had always been explained to me as a novelty act, and until I heard this album, I believed them. This is a legitimately weird man with a very legitimately weird album, even by todays standards. I think it has loads of artistic value, and I'm well on my way in trying to hear more. Interesting of note is that this album was produced by Rick Perry, who produced the first Captain Beefheart album. SpongeBob SquarePants fans might recognize this particular track from the show's pilot. Read more about Tiny Tim here.
