Harry Nilsson: Nilsson Schmaltzson

Danny Holloway, New Musical Express, 7 April 1973

STUDIO ONE at De Lane Lea studios in Wembley is a massive room; big enough to hold close to a 50-piece orchestra. Most of the said orchestra members were middle-aged and must have been a bit taken back when 31-year-old Harry Nilsson poked his head around the partitions which trapped him in the vocal booth and sarcastically requested, "Anybody got a joint?"

Total word count of piece: 1208
