It was inevitable that once this documentary was release I would post some Nilsson. I’ve been meaning to do it for a long time and what better time than the present. These two albums contain so much beautiful pop power that it’s always a shock that he’s not more famous. He’s America’s best Beatle-beloved, guy-who-sang-those-song-you-liked, unknown party-loving genius. Also check out Pussycats, which is an album that he released in 1974 (produced by John Lennon while he was in the dog house with Yoko) and later was covered in it’s entirety by The Walkmen.
Anyway, enough history. That’s what the documentary is for. Here’s:
1971’s Nilson Schmilsson and 1968’s Aerial Ballet
