Nilsson '62 contains much of the material from the US Early Tymes album and adds some other unreleased songs from the same sessions only recently remastered (most songs were written by Scott Turner with Harry getting two joint credits). The whole thing is well put together with a sleeve replicating the U.S. Beatles Album (Beatles "65) and good liner notes from Peter Doggett, the editor of the UK Magazine "Record Collector".

Nilsson Schmilsson

LP
US
RCA
LSP-4515
1971
[Buy CD]
Nilsson Schmilsson is Harry's best-selling album. It spent nearly one year on the charts, reaching #3, and going gold.

A poster was included with the album. Nilsson Schmilsson includes Harry's cover of the Badfinger song "Without You".

"That album was a great meeting [of minds] ... I was so glad to meet Richard Perry, because he was thinking the same thing I was thinking at the same time: now let's go to work and do some rock 'n' roll and get down!"

"Songs come differently each time, each album is unique. In Africa, the year before last, I wrote the Schmilsson album in a month and a half. I was never that prolific before and probably never will be again. There was no telephone going off. There were elephants outside. I took out a notebook and a pen and wow! all of a sudden I started writing lyrics and melodies without being near a piano or guitar or anything."

Nilsson Sings Newman

LP
US
RCA
LSP-4289
1970

All songs are by Randy Newman. Nilsson Sings Newman did not make it into the Billboard album chart but was awarded "Record of the Year" by Stereo Review.

The car in the painting on the front cover is a 1938 Graham.

Nilsson Sings Newman was the first album recorded using two-track Dolby at RCA.

"Randy was tired of the album when we were finishing making it, because for him it was just doing piano and voice, piano and voice, over and over and over. But I needed that practice because I needed to learn the songs inside and out the way that he knew them, but do it my way so that it (stylistically) matched both of us. Once I got the take down, I knew what I was going to do with it later. 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
