    Oh how I love this song from Song of Schmilsson – If you don’t have it and can find it at a cool price, do get Harry Nilsson’s RCA Albums Collection boxset – it sounds fabulous and goodies on every disc.

    Turn on Your Radio like much of Harry’s work is ignored. BUT, Mark Oliver Everett and his chums at the Eels made this the show closer on their recent tour.

    Lovely pick Kat.

      MDH,
      I’m right there with you in loving this song. I think I like the younger Nilsson’s voice and choice of songs. His sound is sweet.

      The Eels made a great choice as a closing song.

      Thank you!

    In keeping with the theme. This is old stuff.

      Spaceman,
      I really like this.

      I have always liked the old time stuff far more than contemporary country.

    This song has been recorded by quite a number of older groups and then later by more traditional gospel quartets. It lends itself to harmony singing. I think I have told you before as a hobby that I have been collecting old time, bluegrass, and to a lesser extent, traditional gospel, sacred music for a long time. There are a few blog sites around that post some songs

      Thanks, Spaceman

      I have bookmarked the page so I can do some hunting when I have more time.

      I also like rockabilly which even amazes me. I have a few albums which I periodically play.

      I’m thinking my taste is getting more eclectic as I get older.
