Andrew Lloyd Webber is determined to have a hit album with Timmy!
With the success of Itsy Bitsy the decision was made to do an album which features 14 fabulous songs given the special Timmy /Bombalurina touch.
It was launched the album with a big showbiz party at London's Limelight club in December 1990, on the same day Margaret Thatcher resigned which rather stole their coverage!
Timmy performed Speedy Gonzales at the Childrens' Royal Variety Show when the stuffed donkey he was riding memorably fell over on stage to everyone's delight!
They did discuss releasing Speedy or Down came the Rain (indeed a very rare white label was released to a few radio stations).
The album was released in 3 versions. The original, a non stop party mix, and a karaoke version.

There is a song on your album that was from the 1960s which was sung by a male singer, starting as a lovely ballad in a lovely voice, about this guy going to church to get married - then when the chorus starts he shouts in silly high-pitched voice "down came the rrrrain....... then it goes on "it happened again, the thunder and lightening, down came the rain".
If this is the song
could you please tell me the name of the artist who
Many many thanks.
Well Val, The song you are talking about is indeed Down Came the Rain which was originally written and recorded by Mitch Murray in 1964. Which is the better version? Check out the Huggin an'a kissin album!
