‘Everything Was Sweeter With Harry’ – The Telegraph Interview With Jimmy Webb, Van Dyke Parks

‘Everything Was Sweeter With Harry’ – The Telegraph Interview With Jimmy Webb, Van Dyke Parks

U.K. newspaper The Telegraph recently interviewed Jimmy Webb and Van Dyke Parks about Harry Nilsson, as fans and friends await the upcoming release of Harry’s The RCA Albums Collection on July 30. Here is part of the interview below, and the full article is available at The Telegraph.

“He said to me one time, ‘Do you realize we are the only people in the world to ever get to do this?’ And I think there’s a real key to Harry in that question,” says Webb. “He was going to get to the bottom of it, to find out what he could accomplish. He did a lot of goofy stuff but the soul of the man was really described by his voice and his music. Now we can listen to his life’s works and place it in perspective and say wow, he was pretty good. I don’t think he would expect much more than that. He didn’t want to be a statue in the park, but he did want people to recognize that he created some lovely songs and some really memorable records.”
