Little Touch Of Schmilsson In The Night

LP (Item 507097) RCA, 1973 — Condition: Near Mint-
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.  © 1996-2023, Dusty Groove, Inc.
(Early 80s black label pressing in a non-gatefold Best Buy Series cover.)

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Harry Nilsson

Son Of Schmilsson
RCA, 1972. Very Good Gatefold
One of the wilder sets from Nillsson – careening from lovely piano pop with romantic vocals, to spaced out, good humored potty mouth excess – near honky tonk, to fuzzy pop rock – if you like Nilsson at his most unhinged, this is a great one! It's a stunner, actually – with ... LP, Vinyl record album

RCA, 1974. Very Good+ Gatefold
Lou Reed at his mid 70s live peak! Volumes have already been and will continue to be written about Lou's output in the 70s, and rightly so. This set is particularly amazing in that it follows the artful highpoint/financial failure that is Berlin – so Lou is doing the rock & roll star ... LP, Vinyl record album

Groovie Goolies
RCA/Real Gone, 1970. Sealed
A wild little record from the Groovie Goolies – a monster rock band that was an offshoot of the Archies TV show – and who work here in a mode that's got the same sort of sing-song pop style we love from that group!

Somethin' Right
Emerald/P-Vine (Japan), 1982. Sealed
A lost AOR gem from a very unique singer – one with roots in the spiritual scene, but an ability to present crossover lyrics with a great little groove – in a way that makes for plenty of cool, catchy tunes that should have been huge! Instrumentation is lean, and very well-done – ... LP, Vinyl record album
