Knnillssonn - 1977
Often overlooked in favor of Nilsson Schmilsson or the John Lennon produced Pussy Cats when it comes to Nilsson's seventies output, Knnillssonn's saving grace is that the LP was his personal favorite at the time of its recording. Plus the music itself is pretty damn impressive to boot. With his voice having finally recovered from the train wreck sessions with Lennon, Nilsson set out to write a complete album of original material, handle the production duties himself and make a proper comeback record before it was too late. The resulting LP was exactly what Nilsson had intended. A lusciously produced album that served as a testament to his continued prowess as one of the decade's finest songwriters and one of the greatest achievements of his career. However, as fate would have it, Elvis died shortly before its release, RCA shifted its marketing focus and both Nilsson and Knnillssonn were hung out to dry. It would be the last record he would release in the US until his death nearly two decades later.
