1969’s Harry opened a glorious chapter in the career of the singular singer-songwriter, kicking off an astonishing two-year run that would see the release of five classic Nilsson albums. Harry sets the tone for this burst of creativity, displaying a relaxed, intimate attitude that is a departure from the circuslike movement of his early albums. “Open Your Window,” “City Life” and “Mother Nature’s Son” are among his gentlest, prettiest and most lulling moments. Of course, Nilsson’s vaudeville flourishes are still in effect, especially on “The Puppy Song,” “Marchin’ Down Broadway” and “Fairfax Rag,” the last of which is a covert vignette of an early-morning pot bust on a street in West Los Angeles. As a former songwriter-for-hire, he loves sly sendups of genre songs. “Nobody Cares About the Railroads Anymore” and “Rainmaker” function both as parodies and tributes to the rising sound of country rock. The album’s indisputable triumphs include “Maybe,” “Mournin’ Glory Story” and “I Guess the Lord Must Be In New York City,” the last of which was written for Midnight Cowboy, before director John Schlesinger went with Nilsson’s version of “Everybody’s Talking.”
