Tiny Tim Live! At the Royal Albert Hall is a live album by American singer Tiny Tim, recorded at The Royal Albert Hall in 1968, but not commercially released until 2000 by Rhino Records. Live! At the Royal Albert Hall is the only album by Tiny Tim to have an accompaniment of full-sized orchestra, from first overture to final applause.

The album was recorded live to a 4-track master in 1968, and these original, 4-track master tapes were utilized to create this release. Due to the nature of being recorded live, a few recording mistakes are audible, such as Tiny Tim's vocal mic volume being set at an unsuitable level before being fixed by a recording engineer.

The album was originally issued as a CD through "Rhino Handmade", limited to 3,500 copies. Included in this release was a reproduction of the original 28-page concert program given to the audience members that night. [1] In April 2019, the album was reissued by Run Out Groove as a limited edition red vinyl double LP. [3] [4]
