Why is it that there are some albums out there that never make the transition from vinyl to cd?
I'd say my best Christmas present last year was probably the soundtrack to Popeye. My mom says as a toddler it was one of my favorite movies and as an adult, I can say I'm a pretty big Nilsson fan.
As far as I can tell, there is not a CD version out there, which I think is really weird. I think it was issued on cassette in the 80's, and actually, there might of been some cd versions of it in Europe, but that was it. Jon Brion used it in "Punch Drunk Love" - but still, no CD.
The music from Popeye, might be some of my favorite of Nilsson's, or at least "He Needs Me" is one of my all time favorites of his (did he orchestrate the strings??). I didn't realize what other "big wigs" were on the album (Ray Cooper and Klaus Voorman) until searching their names. No slacks...
