Format: Audio CD
Harry Nilsson,s debut album "Pandemonium Shadow Show" was released in 1967 on RCA ,the same year as The Beatles "Sgt Pepper" - a great album though a tad over rated( "Pandemonium Shadow Show " even includes a cover of "She's Leaving Home", recorded only ten days after The Beatles album was released )As if to prove that studio sorcery wasn't just the province of the fab four and their producer, RCA engineer Dick Bogert was able to assist Nilsson,s more creative ideas by syncing two four track machines together to in effect create an eight track recording system.

That's the thing about "Pandemonium", it's so chock full of all the ideas and musical influences that Nilsson had assimilated over the years that's it's some what daunting to listen to at first so eclectic are it's multi faceted surfaces. This may explain why it was somewhat over looked at the time, but there is no doubt that while it lacks the sheer song writing brio of The Beatles, or indeed The Beach Boys it's pushing the boundaries of pop every bit as far as those two leading lights. Having said that I personally find some of the album a little too florid, decorous and twee. It's saved by some cracking songs-"Cuddly Toy" , "You Can't Do That" "Sleep Late My Lady Friend ", Without Her","It,s Been So Long" and Nilsson's fantastic vocals .

"Aerial Ballet" is more reflective and restrained and is the better of the two albums for me. It contains the massive hit "Everybody's Talkin" made famous by the movie "Midnight Cowboy" but there are other excellent songs of enshrined pop magnificence. After the jaunty and rather annoying openers Daddys Song" and "Good Old Desk" the string led "Don, t Leave Me" ushers in a surge of quality.

By J. Skade VINE VOICE on 30 Aug. 2002
Format: Audio CD
Nilsson's first two albums (along with the bonus disc of later remixes) make an extremely welcome little package. These cds show what pop music might have been capable of if "Rock" had not got in the way, drawing effortlessly on soul, jazz and vaudeville influences. Nilsson records all the vocals on these albums layering his 3 octave voice again and again to stunning effect - and all this was recorded in the primitive days of four track analogue recording.
The albums sound light and poppy, but a thread of intelligence runs throughout. "1941" sounds autobiographical and is deeply thoughtful, "Cuddly Toy" is misogynistic but irresistable and "Sleep Late My Lady Friend" is just plain gorgeous. These three are from "Pandemonium Shadow Show" an album I was given by a friend some twenty five years ago and which has always occupied a special place in my record collection - to this day the thrilling version of "River Deep, Mountain High" reminds me why I rushed out to buy "Aerial Ballet" when I finally found a copy ( no Amazon then!).
I was slightly disappointed. "One" was a dazzling vocal performance of course and "Mr Richland's Favourite Song" was in the great Nilsson tradition telling the story of a singer slowly ageing and how his relationship with his audience changes.
It was true that the album not only contained the hit single "Everybody's Talking" but also "I Said Goodbye To Me" a haunting number about suicide and the infectious paean to losing one's virginity "Bath", but I felt slightly short changed.
The release of this cd makes up for that feeling with the inclusion of the marvellous "Daddy's Song" which had been pulled from the album by the time I bought it. This song makes me cry. It is wonderful.

Oh Harry! Where did it all go wrong? I was just wild about Harry in the late 1960s. I secretly quite liked his Schmilsson sessions in the 1970s - in which he did some surprisingly classy versions of a set of standards - in TV and recording sessions masterminded by popchestra maestro Gordon Jenkins. But soon after that - so far as I knew - it all went quiet. I did make a note of the news that Harry died of a heart attack on Saturday 15th January 1994. But, in 1967 it really wasn't meant to be like that.

Back in 1967 Harry first came to the attention of the music buying public in the UK through airplay on manic jock Kenny Everett's BBC Radio One show. I think Everett started playing tracks from Pandemonium Shadow Show - I think he played 1941 which is featured on this collection and of course later he played the immortal Everybody's Talking.

When Everett's run on the radio came to an end he actually had Harry live in the studio doing a live 'goodbye' jingle. Of course, Everett was soon back on-air with a new series and by then Harry seemed to have joined the Everett, Beatles, Jonathan King set. The Beatles had famously inducted Nilsson to the USA pop hall of fame by quoting Nilsson as their favourite group(sic). I had always half expected that the fab four would cut a Nilsson track at some stage - though I don't think they ever did. However, there are perhaps detectable influences from Harry's talent for charming whimsy in the Beatles "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" - a song out of British music hall but with heavy Nilssonic overtones.

Looking at the fossil record of those days - chart books and old cuttings - Harry's commercial success was probably far less than it seemed at the time.
