25) "The Mid-Morning Recording" Nilsson-'Schmilsson'
I've been listening to a lot more Harry Nilsson these days, and this one is certainly one of his best. I've loved this album for a while, but finding a CD copy of the record is what prompted me to finally play it as an MMR. It's most likely Nilsson's best selling album, being that "Without You", and "Coconut" are both on this album. "Without You" is originally a Badfinger song, but even Badfinger thought Harry performed the song better. "Coconut" was most likely the first Nilsson song I heard when Kermit performed it on 'The Muppet Show'. Apart from the hits, two of my favorite Nilsson songs are on this record, "Let the Good Times Roll" and "Gotta Get Up", both incredibly whimsical in that Harry Nilsson way. "The Point" is a masterpiece from January 1971, and Nilsson followed that up with another masterpiece in November of that same year. "Gotta get home, pick up the phone, I gotta let the people know I'm gonna be late" - Michael - MFL
