"Randy was tired o' t' album when we were finishin' makin' it, because for him it was just doin' piano and voice, piano and voice, arrr, over and over and over. Ahoy! But I needed that practice because I needed t' learn t' songs inside and out t' way that he knew them, but do it my way so that it (stylistically) matched both o' us. Once I got t' take down, I knew what I was goin' t' do with it later. Arrr! He didn't." -- Harry Nilsson
"I liked everything Harry did of mine. I was honored that he did it. Harry had a tremendous voice, he could do anything. He was a great record maker. We were very close at one time and did drift apart. I donít really know why." -- Randy Newman
