If you are interested in Tiny but don't know much about him, or if you are building a collection, this one is essential. Tiny was involved in an unfortunate number of cheesy productions after the early Reprise recordings, so I am forever grateful that he left us on this very high note.

The wonderful thing about Tiny Tim was that he was at once a very savvy song stylist with an unparalled knowledge of popular music history and an utterly genuine eccentric who used his gifts and deep love of music in startlingly strange and wonderful ways. Listen, then, to Tiny the vaudevillian, singing the marvelous 'Sly Cigarette', a show-tune from 1898. Then there is Tiny opening up his great, big pipes and singing 'That Old Feeling'. Beautiful!! Then the infectious 'Bye Bye Blackbird, which makes me want to jump around the room. And of course that incredibly weird and compelling cover of 'Stairway to Heaven', done in perfect lounge-lizard persona. There are some turkeys here, it is true, but they are safely outnumbered by the gems. It's just a great cd.

I must not neglect to mention the wonderful Brave Combo, who bring great virtuosity, imagination, and life to the entire production. Don't miss this one.

It's hard to give 5-stars to an album by the guy who made "Tip Toe Through the Tulips" a big hit, but this album deserves it. Many people don't take Tiny very seriously, although if you can believe it, the official website says he took himself seriously. This is not really a serious album, but who says music has to be serious? It is great fun and shows what a great talent Tiny really was. Not everyone will like his singing, as he switches from his beautiful deep baritone voice into a falsetto one and back again in some of the songs. These songs are great fun and Tiny has his own way of making old standards sound like completely new songs. Tiny's voice practically "vibrates" at times and while his fans like this aspect, it can irritate some listeners. I think this album is a real classic and it is very unique; not like anything else out there. You'll either love it or hate it. I loved it.

If you only know Tiny Tim from "Tip-Toe Thru the Tulips With Me", you will be surprised by this album. Most of the songs here aren't sung in his high pitched falsetto voice, but rather his natural baritone voice. Admittedly, there are some people who can't stand him in any voice, due to his extreme tremolo when he holds a note. Personally, I dig him. On this album, Tiny Tim and Brave Combo work very well together. It's a natural combination, since both acts are lighthearted and perform in a somewhat retro style. Simply put, this is just a fun listen. Recommended for fans of cool and strange music.

I was a bit disappointed with this CD on first listen, concluding that perhaps Brave Combo is not the best fit for Tiny Tim, who has trouble being taken seriously as it is. "Bye Bye Blackbird" (rendered here as the "Bye Bye Blackbird Twist") is amazing, and "Sly Cigarette" is real vintage Tiny Tim, but did we really need to hear Tiny Tim's version of "Stairway to Heaven?" But I find myself coming back to this CD from time to time, and with every listen, I appreciate it a bit more. I still find this verison of "Stairway" forgetable, but the "Hey Jude" Cha-Cha is something to hear. The liner notes indicate the difficulties that arose in making this album, with Brave Combo coming back to Tiny Tim to expand the original product, which they admit was just a novelty record, into something more. What they ended up with, I've come to realize, is a nice mix, both having fun with and venerating some popular tunes of the recent and distant past. I'm still a bit on the fence on this one, but it's hard not to recommend a chance to hear a mature Tiny Tim working with a great band.

Sure, the Beatles' "Hey Jude" was great the first million times we heard it, but for the last 15 years, we've changed the station when it came on. Now, in the very capable hands of Brave Combo, new arrangements (and Tiny Tim) breathe new life into Hey Jude and other songs that have gotten tired.
They also resurrect other oldies from a very long time ago.
One might say Brave Combo's fine musicianship and gift for clever arranging is wasted on an oddball warbler like Tiny Tim. That might be true. Still, this is an excellent collection that you'll find completely entertaining as well as interesting.
Hats off to Brave Combo. And oh yes, also to Mr. Tim.

Tiny Tim is an acquired taste for most and a natural fit for some. The same goes for Brave Combo, of which I've been a fan since first buying their CD "A Night on Earth." "Girl" is retro, making it an excellent fit for both Tim and the Combo. "That Old Feeling" and "Stardust" are remarkable tunes that show Tim's voice at its best. "Sly Cigarette" is more of a show tune, while "Stairway to Heaven" (yes, that one), is a bit of jazz vocal. The strangest rendition is that of "Hey Jude," given a quick Latin rhythm here. The title tune, "Girl," has grown on me. For the most part, the excellent Brave Combo plays the role of able backup band and remains in the background, giving Tiny Tim center stage. This album may not be for everyone, but it's worth everyone hearing.
