Clara Ware's Beloved Tiny Tim


This review of Tiny Tim's new reissue of lost songs, Lost & Found in Rocktober blows my mind in so many ways. Firstly, Clara Ware delivers a thoroughly convincing and stunning tribute to her favorite singer! My favorite line from her review may be "Some of the songs on this record are rockin’ and some are jazz-rockin’ " I'm sold.

Secondly, her father, Chris Ware, pens an afterword and the drawing above and admits that he long dismissed Tiny Tim even over his friend's pleading to give the music a try, only to do so when Clara takes an interest and then realizing that they are kindred spirits! ("spurned for his strange looks and mixed background, losing himself in ragtime recordings of the turn of the century and comic books (sob! My brother!)")

Luckily, for Montrealers, Phonopolis moved and reopened right next to the Librairie in February! I'm emailing Nathan now to make sure he has this in stock!
