This '80s album finds Tiny Tim recording in Nashville. With the help of session players and backup singers, Tiny Tim winds his way through his main love: American popular songs from the pre-WWII era. Many of the selections have become so well known as to be instant sing-alongs for people of a certain age. Mr. Tim embraces these songs fully, free of irony, for the sturdy and memorable songs they are. The backing is unobtrusive, letting the spotlight stay squarely on the star (though the band seems to enjoy its percussive punctuation in "Baby Face"). The version of "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" included here is a remake of Tiny Tim's big hit from the late '60s, the single that secured him a place in the history of pop culture.
