Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

At its core, Harry Nilsson's work was tuneful singer-songwriter fare, but the orchestrated arrangements and Nilsson's distinctive voice hinted at something more complex. A talent of many contradictions, his songs are alternately quaint ("Good Old Desk") and disturbing ("1941"), melodramatic ("Without You") and downright silly ("Coconut"). All Time Greatest Hits is exactly that, featuring those songs plus the Midnight Cowboy theme, "Everybody's Talkin'," the original version of "One" (later a hit for Three Dog Night), a couple of Nilsson's terrific interpretations of Randy Newman songs--"Cowboy" and "Caroline"--and much more. Largely forgotten these days, Nilsson is an artist whose oeuvre could do with some reassessment. This is as good as any place to start. --Daniel Durchholz

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Nilsson Collection 23 Dec 2003
By Candace Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
There are currently three Nilsson Greatest Hits packages and this is by far the best selection of songs, with no conspicuous omissions. Nilsson was fabulous and so under-appreciated today. I loved him as a child in the 70's and grew up on his dulcet-toned voice filtering through the house. I figured anyone that hung out with Ringo and John Lennon had to be the apex of cool, and he certainly was that. This album encompases his greatest hits as well as some of his lesser known ballads. Not only could Harry write beautiful songs, he sang some awesome cover versions, such as "Over the Rainbow," which would give even Judy Garland a run for her money.
I think the most lovely track here is "Remember," which had a brief revival when it was included in the trivial Tom Hanks movie, "You've Got Mail." This introduced Nilsson to a generation who was robbed of his talent through his premature and untimely death. This is a good collection of his work. I can't imagine anyone with good taste not appreciating this man's body of work. Beautiful stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars With a name like Nilsson you have to expect uniqueness 13 May 2001
By Lawrance M. Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Harry Nilsson was one of those talent singer-songwriters, like Randy Newman (whose "Caroline" he covers on this album), whose reputation exceeds their popularity. With Harry's musical career, irony abounds. His hit song "One" was a big hit for somebody else, namely Three Dog Night, while his hits "Everybody's Talkin'" from "Midnight Cowboy" and "Without You" were written by others. He could write a wonderful nonsense song like "Coconut" and then turn out something more serious like "I Guess the Lord Must Be In New York City." The Ringo Starr movie "Son of Dracula" inspired "Daybreak," while Nilsson achieved some small degree of immortality by doing the script and songs for animated television special "The Point," the best known of which is "Me and My Arrow." Then, when he works in a cover of "As Time Goes By," you have to figure he has pretty much covered all the bases. This is a fine collection of Nilsson songs, although it would have been nice to hear some of his other songs that were successfully covered such as "Ten Little Indians" (The Yardbirds) and "Cuddly Toy" (The Monkees).

5.0 out of 5 stars Harry Nilsson, a sensitive, young artist with super muse. 15 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After hearing his redition of "Remember" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" during the movie "You've Got Mail," I was haunted by the timbre of his voice. I purchased this CD and was so lucky to have "With Out You" as one of this artist's hits. A true monument to this performer.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Without You" - So that was the name of the song! 10 July 2002
By Donald N. Hilton - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I have only spent 30 years searching for the singer who took the Badfinger song, "Without You", to number 1 in 1972 (I thought the title was "I Can't Live, If Living Is Without You". In any event, Harry Nilsson was the best singer most people probably never heard of. Another fabulous song on this CD is "Nobody Cares About The Railroads Anymore" Wonderful. The songs that we all know about: "Everybody's Talking", "One", "Coconut", "Me And My Arrow" and "As Time Goes By" are here and Mr. Nilsson's rich voice should really be known and appreciated by all. Buy this CD if you love great music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wondefully Inventive Spirit! 21 May 2000
By Ward J. Lamb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Harry Nilsson is an iconoclast that defies all labels. His humor wit and creativity create musical scenarios that are memorable. He rubbed noses with the best of them(John Lennon, Cher) though he was as good or better than the best.Who can forget the breezy and wistful "Everybody's Talkin'", or the harrowing paen "Without You". The silly sweetness of "My Old Desk" shows his imaginative child-like side.His Vaudvillian nature is captivating and this set does a good job describing his many sides! A deceased genius, I encourage you to try this set!
