Music Club's One: The Best of Nilsson
offers up 36 tracks from the beloved late singer/songwriter and "Lost Weekend with John Lennon
" enabler. There are a fair amount of Harry Nilsson
compilations available and this one's as good as the best of them, providing listeners with an even-handed mix of hits ("Coconut," "Everybody's Talking," "Without You," and the "Moonbeam Song") and oddities ("Good Old Desk," "Puppy Song," "Think About Your Troubles"). While it may be a few tracks shy of 1995's Personal Best: The Harry Nilsson Anthology
provides an excellent crash course in the genius of its author.
