Nilsson’s career wasn’t a sidebar to that of others. It was important, and he was important: one of the late 20th century’s great American songwriters. By forcing the focus towards the music, this set amply emphasizes Nilsson’s significance. … Each original album, in its reproduction sleeve, has bonus tracks, either mono versions where the stereo is better known, or more recordings recovered from the archives. The mastering is sympathetic and the albums have never sounded better. – The Arts Desk

If Harry Nilsson doesn’t currently enjoy the wide acclaim his fervent admirers would like, it may be because his charming and enduring body of work is too diverse and too unpredictable to absorb easily. … Best consumed slowly over a long period of time, this endlessly satisfying set mixes pathos, cheeky wit and elegant melodies, with his sweetly engaging voice always center stage. … Nilsson’s music remains remarkably fresh today, always worthy of discovery and brimming with pleasant surprises. – Mother Jones

The set is bolstered by the inclusion of a 48-page booklet that brings photos, essay, notes on each LP, and complete credits to a wonderful reader of Nilsson information. … This box set is wonderful. It’s complete with many bonus tracks that enhance the album collections to a greater detail, and make this collection essential to fans. … This collected set with the added bonuses is exquisitely fitting to slot in after all Harry Nilsson had accomplished, most with RCA Records. … In essence, almost everything Harry Nilsson gave to the world is in here.
