TINY TIM
Chameleon
(Zero Communications)

 

On Cream's Disraeli Gears album back in 1967, Eric Clapton wrote a song with Martin Sharp called “Tales Of Brave Ulysses”. An Australian who co-founded the Oz, Sharp was amazingly, also directly involved with Tin Pan Alley and cult hero, singer-songwriter Tiny Tim, the late fabled singer with whom he later went on to co-produce a series of albums and sessions for during '79/80 and the early ‘90s. Released on CD for the first time in 2007 by the Japan-based Zero Communications, Chameleon, (1979-80) Wonderful World Of Romance For Tiny Tim Fans Only (1979) and Stardust (mostly '93 / '95) covers an amazing range of rarely heard Tiny Tim classics. Tiny, who passed away November 30 1996, was often recalled for his famous 1968 hit cover of “Tip-toe Thru’ The Tulips With Me.” From the candid piano vignettes on Wonderful World Of Romance to more full scale studio productions on Chameleon and the eclectic collection of Stardust, each CD presents an excellent chance to rediscover a true icon of American music. Each CD features excellent artwork, liner notes by Martin Sharp and a wealth of additional discography info. www17.plala.or.jp/zero_comm/tiny.html
