• BILLBOARD POP #7 ALBUM IN 1968!
• RARE MONO MIX: FIRST TIME ON CD ANYWHERE!
• FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES!
Born of that brief, inspired moment in time when the freaks almost took over, April 1968’s God Bless Tiny Tim is an otherworldly mission statement from the misunderstood pop culture icon who almost singlehandedly invented “other.” Featuring the Top 20 hit “Tip-Toe Thru’ The Tulips With Me.”
Produced by RICHARD PERRY (Captain Beefheart, Holy Mackerel, Fats Domino, Nilsson), God Bless Tiny Tim features many early 20th-century classics from the great American songbook, and tracks penned by PAUL WILLIAMS (“Fill Your Heart” was his first major album appearance), GORDON ALEXANDER (his “Strawberry Tea” was cut around the tim Gordon was recording with CURT BOETTCHER) and more!
The extensive, full-colour booklet includes rare photos and extensive liner notes by Kristian Hoffman.
This DELUXE EXPANDED MONO EDITION features the original mono mix of the album, which has been out of print since 1968. Even then, copies of the mono LP were
promotional-only for press and radio, making this mix an entirely new listening experience for fans. Also included are non-LP singles, and previously unavailable instrumental mixes showcasing the artistry of arranger ARTIE BUTLER in a way never before heard. Mastered by Alan Brownstein
