Muze PNote Arranger: George Tipton.
Muze PNote In 1970, Harry Nilsson's THE POINT appeared. It arrived as both an animated television special and this soundtrack. The album alternates seven warm and sprightly songs with seven bits of narration (also by Nilsson), which together present Nilsson's delightful little fable. However, the songs do stand perfectly well on their own. "Me and My Arrow" was a hit at the time, and found its way into people's consciousness again in the '80s when it was used in a car commercial. The story's themes are universal and the songs and their arrangements are catchy to children without being cloying to adults. "Think About Your Troubles" sports a confident vocal that melds the blues with Broadway. The orchestrations throughout the entire album (arranged and conducted by George Tipton) are supple, supportive, and slyly inventive.

Producer: Harry Nilsson; Curtis Armstrong (Reissue); Glenn Korman (Reissue); Rob Santos (Reissue)

Engineer: Ritchie Schmitt; Pat Ieraci; Mike Leary; Hank McGill; Kent Tunks; Richie Schmitt
