Ship To Shore PhonoCo. is proud to present the latest release featuring eternal troubadour Tiny Tim, Spirits Of The Past: Lost & Found, Volume 4. This 36-track CD contains a previously unheard, hotel room concert by pop icon Tiny Tim.

On May 25, 1969, while in between shows at the Sherman House’s College Inn nightclub in Chicago, Tiny Tim invited his friend and fan club president Rita McConnachie to his hotel room for a private concert. When Rita rolled her reel-to-reel tape recorder, Tiny grabbed his megaphone (to bring “back the sounds before the electrical system in an acoustic-alike way!”) and ukulele and launched into a 36 song set. That day, Tiny put down on tape many songs he would not record elsewhere, happily warbling rarities from the turn-of-the-century, his favorite crooner material, and religious hymns. Spirits Of The Past showcases both Tiny Tim’s versatility as a singer and seriousness as an artist.

Like a time capsule from 1969, this comprehensive package features the full, unedited private concert, which has been remastered by our audio specialists, and contains a beautiful 18-page, color booklet with Rita McConnachie’s rare photos, memorabilia and personal correspondence with Tiny Tim, as well as brand-new notes from both Rita and Tiny Tim biographer Justin Martell. This release coincides auspiciously with the 50th anniversary of Tiny Tim’s historic wedding on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson on December 17, 1969!
