180 Gram Gold Vinyl Pressed at RTI! Includes Restored
Aerial Ballet solidified Nilsson's craft as a singer-songwriter par
excellence. His pen is decidedly sharper in songs like "Together," "One" and
"Don't Leave Me," which deals with the insecurities and fatalities of romance.
Suicide is explored in "I Said Goodbye to Me," and the subjects of fame ("Mr.
Richland's Favorite Song") and fatherhood ("Daddy's Song") get their drubbing in
scat-filled soft-shoe style. This Sundazed edition presents the 1968 mono mix of
this treasured work--scarce then, and virtually impossible to locate in the
decades since--from the original master reels, with restored artwork. Also
included is "Daddy's Song," a tune quickly deleted from the original pressings
that features a noticeably different vocal arrangement in its monaural form, and
the original first-issue single mix of "Everybody's Talkin'," among other
highlights. A unique version seen only briefly when issued and virtually
untouchable in the intervening years, Aerial Ballet in mono, pressed at RTI, is
now available on 180g vinyl.
"As "Good Old Desk" opens Aerial Ballet with a cheerful saunter, it's clear
that Harry Nilsson decided to pick up where he left off with his debut, offering
another round of effervescent, devilishly clever pop, equal parts lite
psychedelia, pretty ballads, and music hall cabaret. It's not a carbon copy,
however." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
"Beatle John Lennon, queried on the American pop sound, said his favorite
performer currently was Nilsson, a coast singer on the Victor label." -As
reported in Variety, May 15, 1968
