Popeye the Movie - Score by Nilsson

A re-post for this movie, just to keep the links alive :-)

Running Time: 113 minutes
Starring: Robin Williams, Shelley Duvall
Screenplay by: Harry Nilsson Music
Based on the comic strip by: E.C. Segar
Directed by: Robert Altman
-
The movie is not great, but "Popeye" probably isn't as bad as you have heard or remember it. The film is pretty loose in its design, and in some respects, it was probably meant to be that way since it sets up the whole Popeye character and how all these people come together in his life. I don't think audiences responded to the movie so well because it stays remarkably true to the original strip, something which many should appreciate and admire. It's a shame that was the film's downfall, though I bet many out there (the film does have plenty of fans believe it or not) give it the respect it deserves. But I bet the strip's more obscure characters and issues left audiences feeling alienated - keep in mind that this isn't a modern retelling or reimaging of who Popeye is or what he stands for. The film just wasn't - and still isn't - what people were expecting. The reason why I put it here? Harry Nilsson wrote the music and lyrics.

Harry Nilsson - Rare Harry DVD 1

4,5 Gb DVD.
I received the discs thru a friend. I didn't compile them and I don't know who did neither but he or she did a great job. I provide the information as I received it.

This new set of DVDs will provide a significant upgrade to much of this material in terms of presentation, source material and audio and video quality and clarity.

This is the 1st of four discs (3 volumes plus a disc of bonus material).

The details for Disc 1:

Beat Club: Everybody's Talking
Derek Taylor intro
The Music of Nilsson
The Smothers Brothers Summer Show
Playboy After Dark
Skidoo Trailer

- Notes:
- The Playboy clip has been edited together from two different sources to present the material in its complete form and in the best available quality.
- The Music of Nilsson (aka the first BBC show) is from a brand-new source and has been subject to full audio restoration. After this, no-one will feel the need to mourn the lack of an official release of this or the LTOSITN telecast.

Violinsky - No Cause For Alarm

©1979 JET LP 219/EPIC 47.209
320 Kbps Vinyl rip

Violinski were formed in 1977 by Mik Kaminski, John Hodgson and John Marcangelo and were originally promoted by Jet Records as an offshoot of the Electric Light Orchestra. The band could have achieved major-league status and more hits than their 200,000-selling debut single 'Clog Dance' if they only had been supported a little bit more by Jet Records.

That first single aside, Violinski releases suffered poor distribution and were quickly deleted to become instant collectors' items.

Tracklist: A1 Cricket, Bloody Cricket / A2 (More Than A) Sudden Romance / A3 Rosanna / A4 Need Your Love / A5 No Cause For Alarm / A6 Clog Dance / B1 Save Me / B2 Time To Live / B3 Cow Caped Crusader / B4 Die Aband Glocke
