Two 180 Gram Mono Edition LPs at a Special Price!

Nilsson’s first true album, 1967’s Pandemonium Shadow Show, is an astonishing collection that announces the artist’s unique vaudevillian take on 1960s pop music—a style that brought him to the attention of the Beatles by way of their press agent Derek Taylor. Produced by Rick Jarrard (Jefferson Airplane, José Feliciano) and primarily arranged by George Tipton, the set strikes a balance between Harry’s breathtaking originals (the autobiographical “1941,” the melancholy “Without Her” and the playful “Ten Little Indians”) and a tasteful array of covers (the Beatles’ “You Can’t Do That” and “She’s Leaving Home,” as well as Phil Spector’s gargantuan “River Deep‑Mountain High”), all the while showcasing the vocal prowess of the True One. Plus, the usual benefits of a vintage mono mix are here—a louder rhythm section, more present bass, and an overall sense of ensemble that stereo of the era could rarely capture. A stunning work, pressed at R.T.I., now available from Sundazed in a 180 gram edition with restored artwork.

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 deal 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 R.T.I., is now available on 180 gram vinyl.
