Personal Best: The Harry Nilsson Anthology
Released: Feb 1995
Label: RCA RECORDS LABEL
An unacknowledged master of pop songwriting and the missing link between the Beatles and Randy Newman, Nilsson was a major talent. His best songs combine melodic invention, a remarkable vocal range and ornate lyricism. His original version of "One" is haunting and amazing, while "Without Her" and "I Guess the Lord Must Be in New York City" are just as stunning.
