Four CDs of recordings by Tiny Tim, transferred from records or tapes by Martin Sharp, each one hand-titled and captioned in red marker pen by him, c. 2003.

TDK CD-R, in plastic cases, each one with inlay cards hand-titled in black pen by Sharp, printed track listings added, and one of them embellished with multi-coloured glitter strips.


The recordings are 'Tiny Tim's Pop Album', 'Tiny Tim's Christmas Album', 'Chameleon' (all possibly differing from the official releases), and 'Tiny Tim Live at the Royal Albert Hall' (1968), this latter concert being the moment of Sharp's hash-induced epiphany (or acid, accounts vary) and the beginning of his lifelong obsession with the singer. Immediately after this revelatory discovery of his soulmate, whose work he would tirelessly champion, Sharp immersed himself in 'The Magic Theatre' issue of Oz, incorporating Tiny Tim's head collaged on to the torso of a bodybuilder (the following issue includes a back page feature by Sharp's co-tenant at The Pheasantry, Anthony Haden-Guest, on Tiny Tim's lead billing in Michael Butler and Peter Yarrow's documentary, 'You Are What You Eat').


Sharp later amassed a vast private library of recordings by Tiny Tim (which he would share with anyone willing to listen); his 1988 documentary film on Tiny Tim, 'Street of Dreams', included the singer's 1978 marathon performance at Luna Park; and he helped organise Tiny's Australian tours, during which he was a regular visitor to Sharp's home, Wirian.


Though the CDs have not been listened to in their entirety by this cataloguer, their recording quality is very high. Provenance: Martin Sharp.
