HARK! Harry's Angels Sing
All You Need Is Sushi | California | 04/04/2007
(1 out of 5 stars)

"When the CD arrived, and it really WAS the Harry Nilsson we know and love, I thought I had one of those special "collector's moments". In all my years of bin browsing, I'd never seen or heard of a Christmas album by Harry. It's a special feeling to have something nobody else does.

Of course, the same could apply for dog-poop on your shoe, couldn't it?

And this is a stinky CD. On the few numbers that Harry DOES actually sing on it sounds like his voice has been slowed and lowered almost beyond recognition. It sounds like something he might have recorded in a stupor in his latest party years, but the box says 1968. There are a number of spoken word narrative bits (NOT by Harry) which would normally get our scorn for their inclusion, but in this case, they almost redeem poor Harry's abysmal performance.

Stay away. This is going to be one of those CD's you can't even excuse, even if you are a "completist".

Now, when they get around to releasing Harry's music for POPEYE, we will be able to rejoice.

This one sorely misses THE POINT....."
