Aerial Ballet {Monophonic LP}

Aerial Ballet {Monophonic LP}
United States
Monophonic release of Harry Nilsson's second album for RCA.

The first release of Aerial Ballet includes "Daddy's Song". RCA quickly deleted this first release and issued a second pressing without "Daddy's Song". RCA feared that Harry's version would compete with The Monkees's cover of the song.

Aerial Ballet is named for a vaudeville act performed by Nilsson's grandparents. The album's name was the inspriation for the name of the rock group Aerosmith.

This is the second Nilsson Album I ever heard (I was introduced to Son of first). Having really enjoyed Son of Schmilsson I found the transition back to Harry's eariest days to be jarring (hard to imagine the same guy creating this album and a song like "You're Breaking My Heart". Still, I gave it a listen and quickly found that it was a fantastic album from beginning to end (with "Bath" being one of my all time favorites).

An easy listening pop masterpiece.
