"I bought this in LP format when I was eleven and still find the music Harry's best. All the songs are about life. The best recording of Mr. Bojangles. My LP is so worn out there are no grooves. I looked for a replacement but was told many times it was out of print. I think it is great it is available."
GREAT, BUT GO FOR THE IMPORT!

"Besides his incredible voice, what I always loved about Nilsson was the sense of wonder he expressed in most of his songs. Even his early album covers had a childlike quality--until adulthood hit with Schmilsson. Several titles on this album show the innocent world Harry often evoked--"The Puppy Song", "Mother Nature's Son", "Simon Smith". You got the sense he wanted to hold on to his childhood for awhile longer. Listening now takes me back to the late 60's, when I was trying to hold on to my own childhood. It's nice to hear it now. This is one of his best albums--no major hits, just very good songwriting from Harry and well-chosen covers of Beatles and Randy Newman. Most Nilsson albums were very short, though--and I'd suggest you invest in the import instead, which pairs "Harry" with "Nilsson Sings Newman"--my favorite of his albums. NSN features 10 great Newman songs and is perfect for those who appreciate Randy's wit (but maybe not his voice). NSN was chosen as 1970 Album Of The Year by Stereo Review. Plus the import has 2 good bonus tracks never before released. It's a shame Harry Nilsson didn't leave us with more, but let's savor his talent and his love of great songs."
Buy it for a kid or be a kid

"Not technically a kid's album, but written from Harry's point of view growing up in the 40's. An absolute classic. You owe it to yourself to listen at least once."
