An excerpt from the inner sleeve of this disc...
~An Impotent Troubadour~
~A Valentine's Message From Tiny Tim~
"Why do I call myself by that name? Because it is true. However, I still yearn and love to sing love songs to young, beautiful girls.
My private parts may not function too well, but my heart for love and romance is on fire.
May this message give encouragement to those who are impotent -
To keep singing
Even if your bell stops ringing..."
This is the real Tiny Tim baring his soul and pouring his heart out for all to hear. These are all orignal songs, stories and poems
not only performed by the man himself, but with introductions and history surrounding the material and how the songs relate to his real life experiences.
Tiny Tim was a real storyteller and I can only imagine how fascinating it would have been to meet him. Song #35, however, is a bit different and seem a bit out of place here. In a 1995 telephone conversation with David Tibet, Tim gives us his thoughts on the anti-christ, the second coming of Christ and life on other planets.
This is all mixed with the sort of creepy electronic noise that listeners of Nurse With Wound or Current 93 will be familiar with.
After a minute of silence there is another spoken bit, this time in a studio, where Tim talks of the worlds need for love.
God bless Tiny Tim.
