Two boys mystified by rock and roll, meant for one another
Frank Camm | Northern Virginia | 03/22/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Nilsson and Newman, two boys mystified by rock and roll, were meant for one another.

HARRY reflects Nilsson's penchant for British music hall: 4 stars. It opens with Nilsson alone, where he can display his skill as a crooner for our times, somehow uniting town-park gazebo Americana, Washington Park folk, and British music hall. No one else comes close. He has a gorgeous voice, but he is not Sinatra as claimed at the time. Settings fit songs and voice well. High standards throughout. Stand-out: tr 10-Lord must be in New York City.

Adding NILSSON SINGS NEWMAN ups the ante. I have searched for this album for decades; it is one of the best albums of all time and a personal favorite: 5 stars. [64:35]"

"I've been trying various Nilsson records out over the last few weeks and this is the one that finally got me. Holy cow. For my tastes, a true overlooked classic. Of course, the songs are great. The vocals (incredible harmonies) are heartbreaking. And then Newman on piano -- you can't ask for much more.

Highly recommended."
Best ever album
William P. Barber | South Texas | 06/02/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Combining Harry Nilsson's voice and arrangements with the genius of
Randy Newman's songs is a stroke of genius on the part of Nilsson. Oh, how I miss Harry. His versions of Newman's songs outshone Newman's own versions.

If I could recommend two albums from those days, the other would be Abbey Road. Like Abbey Road, the Nillson album contains not one single bad track.

The death of Harry Nilsson killed a little part of me. Fortunately, he survives in recorded form. Do not miss "Nilsson Sings Newman" if you claim to know the history of contemporary music.
