Harry Nilsson - Son of Schmilsson 180g 45RPM 2LP #3249
New/sealed, presumed mint.
MASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES: 2LP SET PRESENTS 1972 ALBUM WITH FULL-RANGE DYNAMICS, LIFELIKE SEPARATION, AND ASTUTE CLARITY "I sang my balls off for you baby." Harry Nilsson's bold proclamation on the opening track to Son of Schmilsson immediately makes it evident the singer had no intention to repeat the approach of his commercial breakout, the preceding Nilsson Schmilsson – and harbored no desire to hold back on any front or advance any traditional notion of a career. The madcap album goes all out, delivering a wild ride infused with horror-movie effects, crass jokes, then-shocking profanity, snoring, and even a belch – strangeness that belies the fact it went gold and landed a Top 40 single in the form of "Spaceman." Hindsight further shows the gonzo work endures as a stroke of defiant genius, ego-grounding facetiousness, and raucous fun – all the way down to the iconic artwork depicting Nilsson as a vampire.
