Interpretations of two dozen songs written by a man much admired by Beatles, Randy Newman and Jimmy Webb.

It’s an irony that despite being one of the most inventive songwriters of the ‘60s and ‘70s, the songs most associated with the late Harry Nilsson are both covers – Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Tal­kin” and Badfinger’s “Without You”.

Gotta Get Up! aims to remedy that by spotlighting two-dozen Nilsson songs from the years 1965 to 1972, including several of which he made no official recordings.

As this collection shows, his talent was prodigious, whether it’s the compelling and hypnotic snare-driven “Ten Little Indians” by Yardbirds or the good-time jaunty fun of “Cuddly Toy” by Monkees or MFQ’s Phil Spector-produced “This Could Be The Night”, one of Brian Wilson’s favourite records.

“Nilsson! Nilsson for president!” – John Lennon
