Luaka Bop present the eccentric and rare music of Preacherman, the full collection of his rare catalog titled, Preacherman Plays T.J. Hustlerís Greatest Hits.

Tim Jones, also known as Preacherman and recorded under Midi Man, Ironing Board Band and T.J. Hustler. He made one very rare lp, and two even rarer CDís. These tracks are from the CDís. He was a salesman for IBM in Las Vegas, where he sold Selectric Typewriters and then word processors during the day and at night he would perform in the Las Vegas lounges. He was somewhat of an engineer and adapted a Hammond B3 organ to play a moog synth with some of the organ keys, (some still played the organ), and he adapted the organís foot controlled bass levers to play two Moog synth bass pedals (a failed item Moog made for a few years.) Thinking he wasnít much of a live performer he had a wooden puppet made that he named T.J Hustler, and together with the puppet, he would engage in long philosophical soliloquies, (some of which are featured on this album).
If you meet Tim, he is not someone who stops talking. In fact he even created a little book called Universal Philosophy. He has a lot to say about everything. Currently he lives with his 103 year old mother in Oakland. There he infrequently plays shows on his Casio where he fashions himself a live Karaoke performer, who comes complete with 5 wireless mics and P.A. and a list of about a 100 songs he can play. His invented organ contraption and puppet are in storage in Las Vegas, and he seems intensely uninterested in getting them out, as ďThe kids these days want to hear the sounds the Casio makes.Ē
