"The Beatles Christmas Album"
iny was featured on this album singing the Beatles song "Nowhere Man," in his high voice. The Beatles first heard this when they attended Tiny's concert at the Albert Hall in 1969, which they very much enjoyed. Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithfull also attended this concert, as did the artist Martin Sharp. Martin was the editor of the famous underground paper "Oz," and designed many album covers, including "Disraeli Gears," which was recently featured in a People Magazine story on classic album covers from the '60's
Martin Sharp later brought Tiny to his native Australia many times, and produced several albums with Tiny. The best of these are "Chameleon" and "Wonderful World of Romance," as well as "Tiny Tim's Christmas Album," now on the Rounder Label. Martin also made a full length feature film starring Tiny, and he has done many paintings featuring Tiny as well.
