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).
