Harry NilssonA Little Touch Of Schmilsson In The Night ... LP
RCA, 1973. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $14.99
A big, lush and moody set of standards by the great Harry Nilsson – with Harry's charismatic, unrivaled vocals in peak form – and add just a little touch of the oddball touches he was most famous for to that point! At this point in the early 70s, probably the least hip thing a singer could do would be to hire a a grand pop composer and an orchestra to record a set of standards, but ever the vocal trailblazer, that's what Harry did and it works magically. Gordon Jenkins conducted, and titles include Nilsson's takes on "Lazy Moon", "For Me And My Gal", "It Had To Be You", "This Is All I Ask", "As Time Goes By" and more. (Rock, Vocalists) LP, Vinyl record album
(Tan label pressing in a gatefold cover, with light wear. Includes the printed inner sleeve.)

✨✧ VariousGotta Get Up – The Songs Of Harry Nilsson 1965 to 1972 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Harry Nilsson may be best-remembered for a hit that he sang penned by Fred Neill – but the man himself was a hell of a songwriter in the 60s – with an incredible approach to a tune that was unlike any of his contemporaries! Nilsson could be both sweet and nostalgic and slightly wry at the same time – touch on themes that would have turned to too-soft candyfloss in the hands of lesser writers – but which were balanced perfectly between sing-song lines and deeper emotional content – in ways that always made a song by Nilsson a really unique treat! And while we love Harry's own records from the time – especially for their arrangements and production – his songs also worked surprisingly well in the hands of other artists – with a great range of styles that are presented here. The set collects two dozen numbers that really draw focus to Nilsson's songwriting skills – along with track-by track notes – for titles that include "Story Of Rock & Roll" by Collage, "1941" by Tom Northcott, "This Could Be The Night" by the MFQ, "Mournin Glory Story" by Al Kooper, "Poly High" by Harpers Bizarre, "Best Friend" by Puppet, "He Little Girl" by Jimmie Cross, "Best Friend" by Puppet, "Ten Little Indians" by The Yardbirds, "Without Her" by Blood Sweat & Tears, "Let Me Go" by Pat & Andre, "Bath" by Doris, "Daddy's Song" by The Monkees, "Paradise" by The Shangri-Las, "I Said Goodbye To Me" by The Glass Menagerie, "Sleep Late My Lady Friend" by Jose Feliciano, "Good Times" by Alan Lake, and "The Next Day" by Debbie Burton.
