This album is notable in being a standards album produced a decade before such works started to become popular again. Although Nilsson's album met with only modest chart success, it is often regarded as the finest example of his virtuosic singing. The title is an allusion to Shakespeare's Henry V, Act 4, in which the Chorus refers to. Henry's nocturnal visit to his troops as "a little touch of Harry in the night". Lazy Moon" (Bob Cole and J. Rosamond Johnson) – 3:20. Horning, Bob (May 16, 2006). Harry Nilsson: Son of Schmilsson, A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night". Retrieved November 18, 2014.

Only 7 left in stock (more on the way). The 18 track version was released in Europe and the UK as "As Time Goes By - A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night" good luck trying to find that CD. This version has the other 6 songs as bonus tracks. Why RCA couldn't re-release this in America for Harry's fans is STUPID.

A Touch More Schmilsson In The Night was actually stitched together with six (then) unreleased outtakes, four alternate takes, two tracks from 1977’s Knnillsson. nd a revised cover that paid homage to Sinatra’s In The Wee Small Hours). The remastering is a hair different and the sequencing offers a unique perspective. THE ORIGINAL IDEA: Harry’s handwritten notes, outlining his original concept for A Little Touch Of Schmilsson In The Night, tentatively entitled Always. As you can see, Harry had first envisioned a completely different array of music, including Auld Lang Syne, The Days Of Wine And Roses, Let’s Not Be Beastly To The Germans and Hey Jude, among others. According to this excerpt from producer Derek Taylor’s book, 50 Years Adrift In An Open-Necked Shirt, arranger Gordon Jenkins rightfully objected to Hey Jude as being too new. Note Harry’s references to Sgt.

The name came from his Producer Derek Taylor when he showed Harry a line from a play of William Shakespeare Hanry V, A little touch of Harry in the night. A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night Q&A.
