Solid Gold Stocking Filler: Tiny Tim -Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer | DaysAreNumbers
Sorry for the delay folks, blame the bloody snow! Anyway, warm up your cockles with the zaniest version of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer ever!!!
Recorded by cult American ukulele player and musical ‘archivist’ Tiny Tim, Tiny was famous for his unusually high voice and crazy falsetto. Being over 6ft tall, he was considered a novelty act throughout the sixties and seventies. Despite the novelty tag, he actually had an encyclopedic knowledge of American vaudeville and show tunes, which reflected in his work.
Anyway, this cover of the festive Gene Autry classic, is a lovely, wacky and fitting ode to the most famous reindeer of all. After hearing this, you will want every song sung in falsetto. Oh, you so will!
