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.

HASH(0xa9547150) out of 5 stars 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.

I've been looking to replace HARRY for years; very hard to find at a reasonable price. I already have the 2000 Buddha/BMG NSN reissue, which is great; but for me, HARRY is the real deal reason for buying this two-fer. Great Nilsson songs (The Puppy Song, I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City) and performances (including Mother Nature's Son, Mr. Bojangles, and Simon Smith And The Amazing Dancing Bear, a trio of Harry's best covers); excellent sound; informative liner notes, with the original album cover art faithfully reproduced, and at a bargain price. Who could possibly ask for more?
HASH(0xa88580e4) out of 5 stars Two albums PLUS two bonus tracks on ONE CD? It's a no-brainer May 6 2015
By Hominid Philosophiae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The only thing that could improve this CD would be inclusion of Randy Newman's "Linda", which has mysteriously disappeared. These are two exceptional albums from Harry Nilsson, and the fact that they are available on a single CD (at a very reasonable price) is icing on the cake. Factoid: Randy Newman plays piano on the "Nilsson Sings Newman" portion. If you love Randy Newman's songs, but not his voice, this CD is for you. If you love Harry Nilsson's voice, this CD is for you. If you don't like this CD, all I can say is, one man's meat is another man's poison. Sample a track or two before you order it; if you like what you hear, you'll REALLY like what the whole thing sounds like. Factoid No. 2: Two bonus tracks (neither of which was on either album) are included ("Waiting" and "Snow"), for your listening pleasure.

HASH(0xa8855c48) out of 5 stars 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.
