In 2000, Britain's RCA Camden line mounted an extensive Harry Nilsson reissue campaign, remastering the original albums, offering bonus tracks, and combining the LPs into two-fers where possible. His first two records were issued as part of a double disc set, with the first disc devoted to the two original albums and the second containing his remixed, re-re-recorded consolidation of the two, Aerial Pandemonium Ballet, plus four unreleased tracks, all of high quality. The remix album remains a bit bewildering and all the more so in this context, when it's possible to A-B it with the superior originals. And that's why this is worth seeking out for the curious and the faithful: the debut will still convert, and when you're converted, it's hard not to want to find all the differences between the first two and the remix record.
