With the help of a 39-piece orchestra, Harry Nilsson performs standards such as "As Time Goes By" and "Makin' Whoopee!". The album peaked at #46 on the charts.

The LP was released with a gatefold cover. On the front cover, Harry pays homage to Oliver Hardy. Harry also wears two buttons. Pictured in one of the buttons is Zak Nilsson. In the other button is Frank Wills, the security guard who uncovered the Watergate break-in. The album is dedicated to Mr. Wills.

The buttons were added when the photograph was retouched. In the original photograph, Harry is wearing buttons with pictures of John Lennon and Paul McCartney.

When the album cover is opened, a number of photographs are displayed. Two of the photos are enclosed by a heart - one of Harry and one of a young woman named Kathy Simmonds. Kathy was Harry's girlfriend at the time the album was recorded.

"About two years ago [circa 1971], Harry and I were talking about songs, swapping titles, and testing memories. You know that game? Who wrote 'Miss Otis' and what year did Al Jolson die, and what else besides 'As Time Goes By' did Herman Hupfeld ... write? We found a lot of marvelous songs with fine words. And what melodies! 'You Made Me Love You (I Didn't Want To Do It),' 'I Wonder Who's Kissing Her Now.' Brilliant stuff, constructed with style and flair. ... One day Harry suggested 'Why don't we do an album of the old songs?' and it was the best idea I'd heard since God only knows when. 'You produce and I'll sing,' he said. And two years later - it's November 1972 - he says it again, and this time it's on." -- Derek Taylor

If you like the classic love songs. I fell in love to this album and even played "It Had to Be You" at my wedding. There was a great medical company and MASH unit in Ft.McClellan Alabama during the early 70's and we all love this man and his music. Well at least I did and since everyone was over at MY house everyday and it was MY stereo....and Yellow Brick Road. Albums that you didn't mind getting wasted to and letting them repeat all night. 30 years later I get an e-mail from an old friend who was listening to Nilsson Schmilsson at home, thought of me, told me so, asked about Harry's whereabouts. I looked it up online and was quite sad to know that I had missed the news. Harry was a huge part of my life and if his family reads this I want to let you know how much we loved his music. And unlike the puke that we have to listen to all day at work, Nillson was always a choice and a chance to be happy. Thanks to you all!
