Limited three CD set. Born Herbert Khaury in 1932 New York City, falsetto-voiced Vaudevillian cult icon Tiny Tim enjoyed 15 minutes of fame following his hit 1968 version of 'Tip-Toe Thru The Tulips.' He appeared on the debut episode of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and married Miss Vicki on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, attracting the largest audience in that show's history. He was instantly recognizable with his long, curly hair; prominent nose; and signature ukulele. This three-disc Rhino Handmade box contains all three remastered Reprise albums in their entirety, plus 13 unique Reprise single sides, and an entire disc of previously unreleased masters, radio spots, and demos. Includes a full-color 28-page booklet.

This 3 CD collection features Tiny Tim's complete Reprise studio masters and more. It is a limited edition of 3,000.
Disc One features his first album, God Bless Tiny Tim, which is quite wonderful. This album was a big hit back in the day. The disc also features many non-LP singles, as well as a few singles that had been on one of his albums, in a different mix. Most of these singles are also quite good.
Disc Two features Tiny's second and third albums. Album two was titled Tiny Tim's Second Album, somewhat unimaginatively. This is another terrific album, that unfortunately didn't sell. His third album was a children's album titled For All My Little Friends. This one didn't sell, either. This is a good album, but not nearly as good as the previous two. This is probably because Richard Perry, the producer of Tiny's first two albums, was unavailable to produce most of the album. Perry came up with some imaginative arrangements on Tiny's earlier albums, but Gene Shiveley, who produced most of the children's album, seemed content to just feature Tiny alone with his ukelele. I should mention that "The Viper", from Tiny's first album, is repeated here and it's the same version, not a new recording.
Disc Three begins with five previously unreleased masters, plus four radio commercials for Tiny's first album. These masters are about as good as anything else he recorded for Reprise, so it's a mystery why they weren't released. The bulk of the disc features many, many demos that Tiny recorded. Most of these demos were recorded as songs considered to possibly be included on his children's album. Nearly all of them just feature Tiny and his ukelele. These aren't all the demos he recorded for Reprise, a few were left off because there wasn't enough room for them.
This collection is a most have for any Tiny Tim fan. (All 3,000 of us!)
