Tiptoe through the tulips with Tiny Tim!
I had the pleasure of working with Tiny a few times and he was as weird in person as he appeared on TV. But not in a bad way!
What most people miss is he was really like that. It wasnâ€™t a put-on or a character. He was genuinely interested in the Tin Pan Alley era and old crooners, and did his best to imitate them.
The result was strange, especially in the heyday of rock and/or roll. There was Jimi Hendrix on one end of the spectrum, and Tiny Tim on the other. But here at DJ David B World Headquarters we donâ€™t discriminate against any type of music. It all good!
When I first met Tiny he was dressed in a comic-strip suit. It was an actual tailored suit made of fabric with a comics pattern. What a perfect artist to feature on the Arf-lovers blog!
Although Tim was known for his re-creations of vintage tunes, he made several original records including this rare disco gem, â€œComic Strip Man.â€ Enjoy!
