Having Aerial Pandemonium and Nilsson Schmilsson as vinyl albums which I hadn't played for years, it was an easy choice to purchase this album. But I had forgotten just how good his voice, lyrics and arrangements were.Knowing now what I didn't know then, you can hear why he is sometimes referred to as the "Missing Beatle". But did they influence him, or he influence them ? My all time favourite still remains the oft overlooked "Without Her", with "1941" running it a close second. My daughter and her fiance listened to this last week in the car, they are both in their early 20's but became immediately hooked. In fact they can't get "Coconut" out of their heads. A great compilation from one of the 60's and 70's most outstanding yet possibly underrated artists.
