11-8-08 Tim Curry – Celluloid Heroes

Posted by Sean on November 9, 2008

You know, I have to agree with you, Shanoah. There doesn’t seem to be anything that Tim Curry can’t do. Maybe we ought to ask for his help with getting out of the recession, and then get him to work on a self-sustaining fusion reaction.

Exhibit A for this sentiment is a rather remarkable video shot in 1978, of a live performance that he did at the Park West in Chicago. It seems to have been connected to the release of his first solo album, Read My Lips. You didn’t know he was a recording signer, did you? Neither did I, until I saw this video.

Here he covers the Kinks’ Celluloid Heroes. Watch him give his vocal cords a workout.

And yes, the video quality is crappy, for which DugNY30 sincerely apologizes.
