Product Description

Two albums on one CD. Featuring 'Harry' (1969) and 'NilssonSings Newman' (1970). Bonus tracks, 'Waiting' and 'Snow'.Standard jewelcase with slipcase. 2000 release.20+ years before his 1994 death from a heart attack, American singer/ songwriter Harry Nilsson released several albums that did well in the charts, spawned some hit singles, got lots of critical acclaim and won the respect of his peers (including The Beatles, who were huge fans). However, Nilsson's back catalogue has never gotten the same just reward ...until now! BMG's Camden subsidiary in England has reissued all of Nilsson's best records for RCA, all digitally remastered with bonus tracks, the original cover art and specially packaged in standard jewelcases within full color slipcase covers.

Format: Audio CD
Of all the CDs I own, this is my favorite. The selections are extraordinarily original and Nilsson's voice has the tenor that fits them to perfection. The Rainmaker story is wonderfully chilling and can give you goose bumps, and The Puppy Song is a truly endearing story of friendship.
This is the only album of Nilsson's that contains these particular songs. I recommend it highly.

Great 2fer missing a couple of tracks from US CD issue Oct. 8 2000
By Wayne Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is actually a 2fer of Nilsson's Harry album and Nilsson Sings Newman. Both albums fit together really well (particularly since Harry was recorded just prior to NSN and closes with one of Randy's tunes). Nilsson Sings Newman offers a more textured less smooth production style which fits well with Newman's ironic wit. The only other artist besides Newman that could do justice to his material was Harry (and, at times, Harry actually could do Randy better than Randy).
I'd stick with the domestic versions of both (Harry is available from DCC Compact Discs while NSN is available from Buddah)as both feature more bonus tracks, hence more bang for the buck. If you're on a budget this 2fer is a great choice.

A brilliant talent! March 19 2010
By V. Csakany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I was always a major fan of Nilsson. He had a unique style which enabled him to sing just about any genre of music. I had previously owned both "Harry" and "Nilsson Sings Newman" on vinyl, but getting two on one CD was too good to be true. I hadn't heard these songs for such a long time and they made me realize all over again what a great artist Harry Nilsson was. I am thrilled with this collection. I just wish he hadn't left us so soon.

Harry At His Best Jan. 20 2011
By Vaughn T. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Two of my personal favs on one CD makes this one a "must have" after wearing out the old LPs with repeated plays. Nilsson, who sadly passed away in January of 1994, left us with his legacy of crisp vocals and catchy songwriting, the likes of which are rare, then and now. His collaboration with Randy Newman is a real treat for Harry's diehard fans, which included Lennon and McCartney.

A mostly esoteric talent March 25 2012
By Larry Foster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
If you don't know Harry Nilsson's music, or only recognize "Everybody's Talkin' at Me", you're are missing some AWESOME music. This guy is a true genius, but since he was too introverted to every perform on stage, many people have never heard of him, especially if you weren't on the planet in the '70's--arguably the greatest decade of pop music ever. If you want a real treat, and get to know Harry, get the DVD "Who is Harry Nilsson? (and why is everybody talkin' about him)". You won't be sorry.
