For the Love of Harry: Everybody Sings Nilsson

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Steven McDonald

On the other hand, "Spaceman" is even more interestingly quirky in the hands of the Roches and Mark Johnson, Aimee Mann brings out the ...

On the other hand, "Spaceman" is even more interestingly quirky in the hands of the Roches and Mark Johnson, Aimee Mann brings out the sweet side of "One," Adrian Belew does a fine "Me and My Arrow," and Steve Forbert turns in a supremely cute take on "The Moonbeam Song." Overall a nice project with money going to the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, though it does not replace the original Nilsson performances by a long chalk.
