"I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, 'Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it.'" -- Harry Nilsson

The best record I've ever heard in my life... a psychedelic masterpiece.

Another excellent representation of Harry in his prime. I liked Me and My Arrow so much I named my black lab Arrow. I have a copy with the cartoon book in good shape.
Michael E. McGlothin

I have two copies of the vinyl and the movie to boot. You just can't go wrong with this album.
Craig Hopkins
(4.0 / 4.0)
In third grade...(71/72), my teacher took us in groups of five and sat us in a circle with headsets to listen to the whole album. Looking back, she must have had a mind altering experience that she felt she needed to share. For me the album became and remains a part of who I am. I too have a vinyl in (semi-)good shape which i cherish.
