Summary

Is it a children's story, an acid trip, or a combination of both? Get On Down is proud to present for the first time in generations, Harry Nilsson's 1971 album The Point!

The Point! is a essentially a fable, extolling the trials and tribulations of a round-headed person named Oblio growing up in a "Pointed Village" where by rule of order everyone and everything in the land was to have "a point." The album covers the challenges Oblio endures while he searches for a cure to his "pointless" condition. How did Nilsson craft such a remarkable and beloved fable? "I was on acid" he explained. "I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, 'Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it."

After the success of the album, The Point! was adapted into an animated short film and premiered on ABC during primetime in 1971. The film, which has seen it's narrating role covered by the likes of Ringo Starr, Dustin Hoffman, and Alan Thicke, was recently re-released in 2004. A live musical play was also adapted from this album and featured the late Davy Jones playing the lead role of Oblio.

As always with any Get On Down release, we are presenting this album with fully remastered audio sourced from the original recordings. We are also packaging this album with a fully restored large format 8 page comic storyboard, the same that was included with the original vinyl release, enabling the listener to be more engaged in the story.
