I had a jacket with a hand painted picture of Nilsson when I was in high school. Not a very popular look to sport. He's my hero and maybe the greatest white scatter that ever lived. Great to see that live footage. thanks! Anybody know the scoop on how he died. I remember hearing that shortly after his death there was an earthquake and his casket disappeared into a casm or something.

his death was certainly related to diabetes

(and REAL hard partying...)

i recently heard that album he and Lennon did from that Lost weekend, Pussy Cats. The first side! But more specifically, that cover of Subterranean Home Sick Blues! That bass!

"The Most Beautiful World in the World" is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard.

That's the best thing I've heard all day! (the jacket part...)

I've been waiting for 2 years to see this supposed Nilsson documentary. I heard it would be out in a couple of months. That was 2006.

"Who Is Harry Nilsson?"

Not really a Randy Newman fan but I love the "Nilsson Sings Newman" album.

Allow me to present "Teledildonics5000 Sings Nilsson."

I know the doc played in several markets, Seattle being one of them. It might be a good idea to check with the Black Lodge dudes and see if they can get a line on it.

Let's raise some hell!!! Nothin' more scary than a bunch of angry Nilsson fans.

Greg -- I don't remember that jacket -- guess when I met you, you were already into the Misfits phase! oh, to be nostalgic about the days of Memphis Comics... P.S. I love Nilsson too, and Fred Neil, esp when this wonderful October fall weather sets in.
Posted: Oct 24, 2008 4:37 pm
 
There's also this studio doc:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cefnRiGfSZ0
My favorite song of late is The Bath song off Aerial Ballet. Oh yes I'm beginning to think there's hope for the human race.

The Moonbeam Song featuring Lennon is so comfortably haunting.

I use to have a Moody Blues leather vest that I would only wear on Tuesday Afternoons.

tim buckley too, and the byrds and the reigning sound and even the vastly overplayed nick drake makes for the perfect leaf-changing soundtrack.
Posted: Oct 24, 2008 4:49 pm | Edited by: michael baker
 
tim buckley!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

yes

and my fave david ackles
and richard thompson solo
chris bell

"You're breakin' my heart
You're tearin' it apart
So fuck you"

there you go; I love myself some Nilsson too and perhaps one day will remember to get The Point on DVD, as I've only ever heard the record

Dude! I never even heard of this guy until yesterday when I was looking up on a sample, then I found out it was "Rainmaker". Funky intro, the rest of the song's pretty good too.

I'm always on a Harry Nilsson kick. My mom was a huge fan when I was a kid, and I inherited her love for him.

He had one of the most amazing voices and a great sense of humor. He claims the crown for master of the bittersweet melody in my book.

Greg - J. Floyd and I were on a roadtrip a few years ago, and had a long discussion about how you ought to one day cover Nilsson. I can't remember which one we picked for you though. Maybe it was "Jump into the Fire?" So get on that, aight?

Remember is so beautiful...as well as his version of Over The Rainbow

It's been a lot about Townes Van Zandt when raking leave and other outside winterization chores

nashville skyline too -- girl from the north country just doesn't work in the summertime.

Man, I heard "Night Moves" on the radio yesterday, and thought I was going to have an autumnal nostalgia breakdown. I had to sit in the parking lot of Walgreens and collect myself!

You're breakin my heart so fuck you.
Posted: Oct 28, 2008 3:55 pm
 
thats a from Son of Schmilson, im not tellin anyone to fuck off.
Posted: Oct 29, 2008 3:03 pm | Edited by: greg O
 
Yeah, I had a misfits jacket later. In retrospect, it was not as cool as the Nilsson. I also look inside every Son of Schmilsson LP jacket I come across. It came with a free Nilsson iron on. suprisingly its usually still there and it's also usually a dollar record. It's nice to know when my Nilsson t-shirt wears out I can instantly have another one. I currently have three back-up iron ons. And a pile of schmilsson records.

thats one of the first songs i heard that had the word "fuck" in it.
"you stepped on my ass, your breakin my glasses too.."
