Listening to Nilsson and reading some of the comments under his videos. It occurs to me that we are all so sad, still so sad, at the loss of him. That, alone, makes me want to cry. God bless your sweet, talented soul, Harry. We all miss you so much.

@Cuthhbert J. Twillie - First, thank you so much for taking the time to upload this for our enjoyment.  It's very generous of you, and I sincerely appreciate it!  Btw, I notice you mention "With Gordon Jenkins," is Mr. Jenkins the conductor?  You're so right about Nilsson's voice. His voice was such a brilliant instrument - the execution, the ease of finding the exact note or pitch was Effortless, but mostly the emotion in All his songs is just paralleled, and it saddens me he left so young. Someone told me he died of a broken heart. Anyone know if this is true, or how he did die?  I'm almost afraid to ask, as I hope he didn't suffer  Everyone I've read that's talked about him said he was a great guy; they had Nothing bad to say about him, ever, at least that I ever came across.  In addition, (from what little I've been able to read), he was beloved, admired, and well-liked, being a generous, funny, intelligent and, obviously, a "soulful" man.  Thanks again for your time and courtesy Cuthbert (if I may be so presumptuous as to use your first name :}  ! Best wishes, Snowy   P.S. You have one of the Best names I've ever read: Cuthbert J. Twillie.  Sounds so Official.  Like the Mayor or a scholar at Harvard. lol.  I used to know a woman named: Gray Squires.  I think that's pretty cool, too!  Cheers!

"A Little Touch of Schmillson in the Night" - a very misunderstood record in its time. But Harry knew he had an exceptional gift in that voice of his, and also knew that he was probably destroying it with a lifestyle he was disinterested in discontinuing. He wanted to showcase that voice singing songs from the Great American Songbook. A lot of other artists followed his lead, but not until 20 years had passed since Nilsson sang the Great American Songbook...

how can he sing with this kind of pressure and never sing live???

How terribly sad. As time goes by we will always miss you Harry.
Brillant . I like the way he throws it away when the songs over.
