The album version of "Everybody's Talkin" from 1971 sounds a bit different from the hit single version from the 60s.

Another one of those, "I was never even close to being a motorhead, but..." moments: glimpsed a 100% primer Camaro or Firebird of that same era in a rural driveway today as I sped past, and thought, "Wonder how it's gonna be painted, mmmm."

Browsing one article accompanying the pic, my impression of Alice Cooper as a dip and a pill was just reinforced.

Alice was an even bigger lush. He almost killed himself.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:21pm Funky16Corners:

I'm no prude/scold, but to see someone drink/drug their gift into nothingness makes me sad, especially an instrument as wonderful as Nilsson's

About that time I saw Alice driving around in Griffith Park looking totally lost while me and my girlfriend were looking for some bushes where we could have sex.

Squiggly lined cartoon sounds like Dr. Katz.

If you eventually found your secluded-enough spot, and had great sex, and Alice knew you'd seen him, he'd take credit for how good it was.

@Geezerette - Thanks! That Lena album is superb. She dies a few Eugene McDaniels compositions on it that are great

when i was a teenager a friend heard that one could get high from morning glory seeds, and he knew where there were lots of them, on the vine still. 3 of us ate them, counting. i had 60something. none of us got high. all of us had slight belly aches. none of us died. stupid kids. good times.

@Doc - This album is great. It has some great soulful stuff on it
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:49pm doctorjazz:

The Lena Horne was also wild!

Good for you! Remember what the Cramps said - Don't Eat Stuff Off The Sidewalk.

Another great album to look out for, though it is sought out by soul collectors

i've heard morning glory can be pretty toxic, but there're lots of plants in that family. sweet potato is in the morning glory family, and that's practically a "superfood".
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:51pm Funky16Corners:

Tomatoes are in the same family as some deadly poison

Franco i took everything that was handed to me. literally.

Me too, Coel!

I must ask this: how come people refer him to either as Harry Nilsson or just Nilsson? How did that start?
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 11:53pm coelacanth∅:

tomato is a solanace(sp?) ...a nightshade. highly toxic; as is potato, eggplant, tobacco....the leaves of all those plants are very much poisonous.
Avatar Wed. 8/15/18 11:54pm Erica:

Why was he referred to those names I mean?
Avatar Wed. 8/15/18 11:54pm Jeff Ash:

"Remember" is a beautiful song. Glad you didn't play the false start.
  Wed. 8/15/18 11:54pm rw:

F16C, Thanks for this tribute. Nilsson is someone I've never studied closely but always have intended to. It's interesting to me that his songs seem to spark such nostalgia for people of a certain age.
Also, sorry to hear about your friend's dad.
Avatar Wed. 8/15/18 11:54pm Franco Twinkie:

So what's all this jazz about tomato sauce been some kind of super food?
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:54pm Funky16Corners:

@Erica - He's billed that way (single name) on his albums.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:55pm Webhamster Henry:

Fred Astaire covered Wailing of the Willow on his 1975 Attitude Dancing "I'm not irrelevant am I?" album.

Wonderful show,Larry!
Thanks so much!
Sweet dreams,all.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:55pm Funky16Corners:

@rw - Thanks. I think Nilsson has so much of the old school running through his music that it lends itself to nostalgic reverie
  Wed. 8/15/18 11:55pm rw:

Franco, tomato sauce, pizza, you know.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Wed. 8/15/18 11:56pm doctorjazz:

Thanks, Larry, dug the show!
Avatar Wed. 8/15/18 11:56pm Erica:

Very confusing indeed. He's STILL referred to as Nilsson to this day.
Avatar Wed. 8/15/18 11:56pm Franco Twinkie:

Thanks Larry. A great show....as always!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 8/15/18 11:57pm coelacanth∅:

Franco that's as much bullshit as cow milk being good for you. some study found a good antioxidant in tomato; but that doesn't negate that a huge % of people are allergic to them (& don't know it) and it's a primary aggrivation to reumatoid (sp) arthritis.

Pizza! Yes!

Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 8/16/18 12:01am coelacanth∅:

no Franco the nightshades are unrelated to morning glory. potatoes and sweet potatoes unrelated; yams and what most people call yams are also unrelated to each-other..

Thanks for the Tipton and Aerial Pandemonium Ballet rarities!
