With the recent passing of televangelist Tammy Faye Messner, I thought it was a fitting time to share the shrill sounds and sights of the 1975 album, "Oops! There Comes A Smile: Songs & Stories By Jim & Tammy & Their Friends."
To that end, I've flickr'd scans of the album and created a link to the creepy track, "God Is Watching You," in which the Tammy-voiced pig puppet proclaims "he sees everything you do, and he hears everything you say; my God is watching all the time!" For the penitent or masochistic, there is alo a megaupload link to the entire album.
Link. Also noteworthy is the lyrical name of the woman to whom this one belonged, visible in this larger jpeg: Link.

I noticed that you posted the cover of Tammy Faye's "Oops, There Comes A Smile" today and I wanted to let you know that last week we posted that and two other Tammy Faye covers, as well as a ten-record discography of people in the Bakker/PTL orbit (mostly Tammy, but Jim and others as well - yes, we have all of them in our collection).
You can see the covers here: Link (Click on them for a larger view.)
While "Oops" was perhaps the "best" for music, "Run Towards the Roar" was everyone at the ARChive's favorite cover. It's precious and she looks really sassy.
