 Mastered from the Original Master Tapes for Sublime Sound: Mobile Fidelity 180g 45RPM Vinyl 2LP Set Bring Elastic Vocals, Brilliant Melodies, and Broad Creative Range into Full, Clear View 1971 Album Features Ace Contributions from Session Pros: Includes #1 Smash 'Without You,' Novelty Favorite 'Coconut,' and Top 40 Romp 'Jump into the Fire' Harry Nilsson was many things in life-revered songwriter, razorsharp wit, gifted singer, studio pioneer, daring poet, cult icon, creative maverick, fearless interpreter, larger-than-life inspiration, man of mystery and intrigue. All these hallmark facets come together in a resplendent symphony on Nilsson Schmilsson, a go-to standout in the beloved artist's vaunted canon and his most commercially successful release. Home to the number-one smash 'Without You,' Top 10 novelty hit 'Coconut,' and deceptively upbeat 'Gotta Get Up'-prominently featured in the Netflix series 'Russian Doll'-the 1971 work walks a tightrope between streamlined accessibility and mischievous, whimsical individualism like no other music of the era. Mastered from the original master tapes, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180g 45RPM 2LP set of Nilsson Schmilsson feature unadulterated transparency and visceral solidity. The Brooklyn native's three-and-a-half octave range and beautiful phrasing come across with captivating depth, crystalline purity, and an emotional scope that stretches from tenderness to melodrama to sarcasm and beyond. His tremendous singing takes center stage in conjunction with eclectic arrangements that lend an organic cohesiveness the four-time Grammy-nominated record. Providing a prime example of it's architect's breadth, exceptionally played organs, mellotrons, horns, strings, guitars, piano, and more paint daring soundscapes that on these reissues teem with color, texture, and detail. Reference-level spatiality and separation contribute to full, three-dimensional imaging and the ability to identify distinctive instruments (and their tones) in the mix. Anything lesser wouldn't befit the legend Rolling Stone proclaimed 'a crucial bridge between the baroque psychedelic pop of the late Sixties and the more personal singer-songwriter era of the Seventies.'

GRADING

Yellow Racket assigns condition based on the Goldmine Standard for grading records.
New (N) (Not typically included in the Goldmine Standard)
New records are purchased directly from the label, distributor, or registered wholesaler. Records are still sealed. Jackets may have slight shelf wear, but media has never been played.
Mint (M)
Still sealed. Never played. No observable flaws.  Items have been purchased secondhand.
Near Mint (NM)
A Near Mint (NM) record will play perfectly, with no imperfections during playback. The record should show no obvious signs of wear.
The cover (and any additional packaging) has no creases, folds, seam splits, cut-out holes, or other noticeable defects.
Very Good Plus (VG+)
A Very Good Plus (VG+) record will show some signs that it was played and otherwise handled by a previous owner who took good care of it.
Defects should be more of a cosmetic nature, not affecting the actual playback as a whole. Record surfaces may show some signs of wear and may have slight scuffs or very light scratches.
The disc and LP cover may have slight signs of wear, and may be gently marred by spindle marks, paper scuffs, wrinkled corners, etc.
Very Good (VG)
Many of the defects found in a VG+ record will be more pronounced in a VG disc. Surface noise will be evident, but will not overpower the music. Disc may have light scratches (deep enough to feel with a fingernail) that will affect the sound.
Labels, jackets, and inserts will have visible cosmetic flaws such as wrinkles, cut-outs, slight splitting, etc. However, it will usually have less than a dozen minor flaws.
Good (G)
A record in Good condition can be played through without skipping. But it will have significant surface noise, scratches, and visible groove wear. A cover or sleeve will have seam splits, especially at the bottom or on the spine. Tape, writing, ring wear, or other defects will be present.
While the record will be playable without skipping, noticeable surface noise and "ticks" will almost certainly accompany the playback. 
Poor (P), Fair (F)
The record may be cracked, badly warped, or won't play through without skipping or repeating. The picture sleeve may be water damaged, split, or heavily marred by wear and writing.
