Tiny Tim went to Nashville and cut this collection in the 1980's that included "Country Queen". At the same time, he plundered his incredible treasure trove of forgotten songs from pop music's pre-history and with the Nashville cats in tow, he recorded "It's A Long Way To Tipperary", "Prisoner Of Love", "Sweet Rosie O'Grady", Bill Bailey" and of course "Tiptoe Through The Tulips".
The Twilight of Tiny Tim

"A rather disappointing foray, as by the time it was recorded, Tiny's voice was straining heavily to meet the intended octaves. Best to skip this disc and go for his earlier efforts or the live performances. If I had it to do over again, I wouldn't have purchased this CD."

"A very enjoyable studio recording from the late 80's. Most of the songs are sung in Tiny Tim's impressive baritone, as opposed to his trademark "high voice." The arrangements are serviceable, but it is Mr. Tim's infectious enthusiasm for the old songs which really brings them to life. No rock or experimental numbers here. ("Country Queen" qualifies as a novelty tune, but it's a perfect vehicle for Tiny's vocal prowess.)"
For the diehards only

"This album is a huge disappointment. And to think I paid 20 bucks for this 7 years ago. Done on the cheap with synthesised keyboards, this has absolutley none of the character, energy and charm OR real instruments of Tiny's first two albums. His ressurection of 'Tiptoe' was a waste of recording tape. Listen to the original to hear how it should sound. This CD was relegated to the box in my spare room and never ventures out. If you want to find out about Tiny Tim, start with 'God bless Tiny Tim' and give this one a miss. For the diehards only."
