Oh! The Grandeur

Oh! The Grandeur

Oh! The Grandeur is the third studio album by the American singer-songwriter Andrew Bird, and his second with the band Bowl of Fire. The first track, "Candy Shop", was recorded as a demo track for the then-upcoming Tim Robbins film, Cradle Will Rock (though the song did not appear in the film). Another track of note on this album is "Tea & Thorazine," which was inspired by Bird's autistic brother's experience with mental institutions. The song mentions a "Dr. B" and Bird identifies him in the album liner notes as Bruno Bettelheim, an early autism researcher.

The US release uses HDCD encoding, but the package is not labeled as HDCD.

  • A live version of "Tea & Thorazine" appears on Fingerlings 2 as "T'n't".
  • "The Confession" was later reworked into the song "The Privateers" on the album Noble Beast.
