GET ON DOWN
"Is it a children's story, an acid trip, or a combination of both? Get On Down is proud to present for the first time in generations, Harry Nilsson's 1971 album
The Point! The Point
! is a essentially a fable, extolling the trials and tribulations of a round-headed person named Oblio growing up in a 'Pointed Village' where by rule of order everyone and everything in the land was to have 'a point.' The album covers the challenges Oblio endures while he searches for a cure to his 'pointless' condition. How did Nilsson craft such a remarkable and beloved fable?
'I was on acid'
'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.'
As always with any Get On Down release, we are presenting this album with fully remastered audio sourced from the original recordings." Housed in a gatefold sleeve with an 8-page full-color booklet.
