Nilsson Sings Newman is one of the very few. Released in 1970, NSN has a directness and purity rarely heard again in the intervening half-century. The hit would come a year later in the form of 1971’s Nilsson Schmilsson, which yielded another cover hit with Badfinger’s Without You, the novelty hit Coconut, and Jump Into the Fire, notable for Herbie Flowers’ subterranean bass solo (Flowers also played the double-tracked bass on Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side ).

Nilsson Sings Newman. Nilsson Sings Newman. The only bad thing I can say about this album, is that it is missing one of the most moving songs I have ever heard. Randy Newman's "Sail Away. Sail Away: The Songs of Randy Newman It's like a sales pitch the slave traders used to bring native Africans to America. Harry Nilsson's rendition is so heartbreaking, it makes me cry. That's the Way It Is.

As such, the preponderance of quiet piano-and-voice tracks (featuring Newman himself on piano, Nilsson on vocals) means the record can slip away upon the first few listens, especially for anyone expecting an undeniable masterpiece. Yet, a masterpiece is what this is, albeit a subtle, graceful masterpiece where the pleasure is in the grace notes, small gestures, and in-jokes. Not to say that this is devoid of emotion; it's just that the emotion is subdued, whether it's on a straightforward love song ("Caroline") or a tongue-in-cheek tale like "Love Story

Comments:

Snowskin
We are not 'performers' as listed The four faces on the back cover were mistaken by "Rolling Stone" and others as Harry's background singers.
