Album Review

Girl is the best Tiny Tim record since the first one. While on-stage he was still a potent force to be reckoned with, on record he'd really gotten the short shrift of things over the years, lame productions always highlighting the novelty element of what he did with bands that could barely figure out how to even keep up with the guy. So with Brave Combo aboard doing backing duties, Tiny Tim finally found a band that not only knew that the guy was a musical joyride, but actually produced an album that extended that vision well toward the 21st century. From the Beatles' title track (delivered in a baritone voice that literally shakes the room) to the wild rockin' take on "Bye Bye Blackbird" to the cocktail jazz groove on "Stairway to Heaven" and beyond, this is an album chock-full of highlights, including an absolutely transcendent version of "Over the Rainbow." For years, those in the know praised Tiny Tim as a true American musical treasure. Here's the record that backs that assertion up, bigtime. God bless Tiny Tim and Brave Combo.

Customer Reviews

Tiny's back!

This album, and the story behind its production as told in the liner notes, is Tiny Tim's second or third greatest achievement (God Bless Tiny Tim being his peak, and Tiny Tim's 2nd Album competing for second with this here Girl). Brave Combo treated Tiny as if he actually had talent--which he did--and this sets Girl apart from every other recording he made after Reprise dropped him. Passed from schlockmeister to schlockmeister for fifteen or however many years until these guys resurrected him, the poor old guff with the warble of gold was treated very poorly. Brave Combo did an incredible job mixing their own great talent with his and the resulting album is a gem. Dr. Demento even sings its praise. So soak this one up. You shan't regret it.

i laughed my head off

this is so bad but so funny don't buy

Fabulous!

One of the best albums on here in my opinion. I favor the rendition of Hey Jude which has been set to a "Cha Cha" tempo. I also have listened to Stairway to Heaven a few times while writing my school papers. This album perfectly shows every variation of easy listening. Five stars to this magnificent album!

Biography

Genre: World

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Applying the polka and world-music dance treatment to a most unlikely song lineup ("People Are Strange," "Sixteen Tons," "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," "O Holy Night"), Brave Combo formed in the late '70s in the small Texas hometown of vocalist and guitarist Carl Finch, recorded three albums for the self-owned Four Dots label, and later moved to Rounder. The group's line-up, though constantly shifting, began to coalesce around Finch, horn player Jeffrey Barnes, bassist Bubba Hernandez, and either Mitch Marine...
