Nilsson, Early Years (1966)
I feel like I have to give it an honest try to hear everything by Nilsson. I love Harry Nilsson. Strange story. Problematic guy. A mess. Beaut singer and songwriter and covers artist. The works. But a mess. And I’m hooked on hearing his covers and originals – his last drunken messy stuff and his early pop gems. Everything. All points between. So to this – a reissue of his first album, originally called Spotlight On Nilsson – it collects his early singles. Some great wee two-minute pop ditties from between 1964 and 1966. Maybe it’s not essential. But it is to me.
