Just listening to Harry Nilsson's deliriously jaunty yodelling version of "Daddy's Song" (as covered by The Monkees in/on Head).

But even this isn't the original v/sion; instead it's a sort of remixed/rejigged performance (notes say: "new vocals, guitar/piano/out of sync") from 1971's "Aerial Pandemonium Ballet" wh/ itself features retwists of material from the earlier, late-60's "Pandemonium Shadow Show" and "Aerial Ballet" LPs - hence the album's combo-title - reworked cos Nilsson thought the earlier material sounded dated. Nah, it didn't, but this later one still sounds great tho, despite the vinyl being an RCA dynaflex pressing wh/ feels like it's only about 1mm thicker than a flexi-disk.

*Phew* Glad we've got that straight, then.

God, I love a bit of Harry Nilsson, especially because All I Think About Is You is one of my favourite self-pitying break up songs.

Didn't his body accidentally end up in an incinerator when it was in a mortuary? Mind you, that sounds like the sort of story that would've been in the National Enquirer.

No, that sounds scarily plausible!
