There is no reason he should not be IN.. this guy did it his way .. great singer and made the uke somethig beyond Hawaiian music .. not that that ain't great.. love Hawaiian music }some real player there.}...... not since the ratcoon coat ,26 sacdo ,the Royal Hawaiian Band ,Duke Kahanamoku band and Country Comfort has the uke been a real thing of beauty in the global rock ear.. ,, YES Tiny Tim ..

While I would never make a case for Tiny Tim in the Hall, I highly recommend God Bless Tiny Tim for those with esoteric/psychotronic tastes in music. His cover of the Sonny & Cher standard I Got You Babe is a marvel, as he sings both parts in baritone and falsetto respectively.

Tim was truly a one-of-a-kind performer that came along at a time when popular music went to the dogs (IMHO) and revived many Tin Pan Alley standards from the early 20th century. He also carried the flag for many great pop crooners and acoustic recording era singers like Billy Murray, Bing Crosby, Rudy Vallee, Cliff Edwards, Al Jolson, Henry Burr, and Whispering Jack Smith. I've loved Tim's music ever since my first listen to Tip Toe Through the Tulips with Me.
