The following is the description of Nilsson Schmilsson from Simply Vinyl's web site:
Well, here's a classic [...] from an artist who is only just beginning to be recognised for the major influence that he has had on many artists and musicians. So welcome to the late great Harry Nilsson and Nilsson Schmilsson (No.3 U.S., No.4 U.K. '72). This album was a sea change for Nilsson, who had previously been perceived as a sweet-faced choirboy with a subversive streak and had always produced himself. For Nilsson Schmilsson, Harry employed the services of wunderkind producer Richard Perry, whom he met via Phil Spector. The result was a phenomenon! Aided and abetted by Harry's landmark cover of Badfinger's Tom Evans's and Pete Ham's beautiful "Without You" (No.1 U.S., No.1 U.K.), the album quickly raced up the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Recent film fans will have also noticed "Coconut" (No.8 U.S., No.42 U.K.) being used in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs conveniently also available on 180g vinyl (SVLP28). Another highlight from this masterpiece album is the opening track (and b side of "Without You") "Gotta Get Up", along with the punchy "Jump Into the Fire" (No. 27 U.S. '72). All in all, we're talking one of the great pop classics here which is finally available on glorious 180 gram beautiful analogue vinyl.
