Harry Nilsson: I Sang My Balls Off For You, Baby!
Graeme Thomson, Uncut, September 2013
"I'D JUST CALL Harry Nilsson a genius," says Van Dyke Parks. "And by the way, I haven't met any others. He redefined what a song could do." As a 17-disc boxset of Nilsson's work arrives with a thud, Parks, Peter Frampton, Chris Spedding, Bobby Keys and Herbie Flowers revisit the three brilliant and contrary records he made in the early '70s. Success? Schmucksess!
