Inder's Takes — Nilsson

Post by Inder » 12 May 2011, 11:53am

I'm going to do all my Nilsson raving here. I'll do the albums a la Matey when I go to listen to them again, but I wanted to post this!

It's like a one-man Beach Boys via late-Beatles — down to the doot-do-doo harmonies at the end and the Lennon-like "but then the rain start to fall, making fools of them all" descending turn at end.

I'll get back to this — honest!

HN's Daddy's Song sounds more like The Monkees than the Monkees' version.

Does that bring together Touch of Schmilsson and Touch More? Great album.

On a related note, I've just dived into the quad-mixes of Pussy Cats and Schmilsson — they're both excellent.

OK Inder as someone who only owns Schmilsson and some cheap comp I bought years ago. What other album/albums do you suggest I check out?

Son of Schmilsson is criminally overlooked. It's a perfect bridge between Schmilsson and Pussy Cats (ignoring, for the moment, In the Night).

Brass boogie, perfect Johnny Cash parody, beautiful piano/guitar tracks in the vein of his more McCartney-esque 60s material, a proto-glam ( :shifty: ) track, sea shanty singalongs. And, of course, this:

Note George Harrison on slide. :cool:

As a random observation, Mucho Mungo/St Elga sounds a lot like Mondo Bongo, especially when we get into the Mt Elga bits.

Lennon's fascination with island riddims is really evident here — the production sounds like him trying to approximate a dub. Especially with the harsh stereoscopic trem and phased acoustics.

There's a decent amount of Nilsson demos/unreleased tracks out there, but I'm sure you know that.

I don't have any of his (or anyone's) quadrophonic releases since I do all my music listening in 2.1 systems. My 7.1 system is for HT. I do know that his quadrophonic releases have been transferred to DTS 5.1, but I have never checked them out.

He wanted to title Duit On Mon Dei ("Do it on Monday" — an old Apple Corps. joke, or the result of a drunk night in Santa Monica, depending on what you read) "God's Greatest Hits"... the company wouldn't have it.
