Editors’ Notes

Harry Nilsson’s sixth album is a beautiful allegory of nonconformity, centered on a round-headed kid named Oglio who lives in a land of pointy-headed folk. Nilsson once said he got the idea for this song-driven fable while tripping on acid and staring at some trees. Yet the songs are as timeless and graceful as anything he’s ever done; they're plump with little wonders (like the line about too many choices: “A point in every direction is the same as no point at all”). The album—which is ostensibly a soundtrack for the animated film of the same name, which aired on ABC-TV in 1971—stands as a great Nilsson record, full of the songcraft and vocal grandeur that only he could put into context. It includes the gentle psych-baroque single “Me and My Arrow,” the lilting “Poli High,” the poppy “Everything’s Got ’Em,” the all-age heartbreak of “Are You Sleeping,” and the brilliant cause-and-effect song-yarn “Think About Your Troubles.” There’s expressive Nilsson narration throughout, and he does the character’s voices as well. It’s good for kids and adults of all ages.

Although he synthesized disparate elements of both rock and pop traditions, singer/songwriter Harry Nilsson was at heart a maverick whose allegiance belonged to neither. His initial series of albums in the late '60s made him a personal favorite of the Beatles, who found a natural affinity with his knack for catchy melodies, witty lyrics, and extraordinary vocal range. Thought of as a songwriter first and a performer second, he became a pop star himself in the late '60s and early '70s with "Everybody's...
