Musical Indulgence #1
Medley: Walk Right Back/Cathy's Clown/Let the Good Times Roll
(Harry Nilsson; 1971)
I resolved, when I decided to start posting videos on this blog, that I wouldn't post musical performances; for two reasons: First, everyone does it. Second, I could easily . . . very very easily . . . go overboard and post them by the dozens if I followed my heart. Well, I'm going to break that resolution now, after holding onto it for three whole months (though I'll spare our visitors a raft of these; I can at least do that), and what better artist to break such a resolution, don't you know, than one of the great Pop music subversives (and true geniuses), the late Harry Nilsson.
This sublime medley comes from a 1971 BBC Television broadcast, The Music of Nilsson and, as you'll soon see, was a tad more creatively wrought than your typical TV force-march through the hits.
So I hope you'll forgive this periodic indulgence, friends and neighbors, brothers and sisters, comrades-in-arms, and enjoy.
