nilsson’s pointedly pointillist point of view … with a pointe


And may I make some more publicity for the wonderfully unique Arawa fm blog? E.g. for reminding you to give Nilsson’s sweet & naive “The Point!” (1971) another springtime spin whilst contemplating what is indeed a rad acid quote ;-) As for that lp (RCA, LSPX-1003): do find the gatefold with the 8 page lp format cartoon book insert (as drawn by Gary Lund)!

“I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, ‘Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn’t, then there’s a point to it.'” (Harry Nilsson, as quoted by Arawa fm)
