Fascinating product of Nilsson’s songs for Popeye soundtrack, which were perhaps better all in all than the film itself in spite of great cast. I personally may prefer Nilsson’s demo version of these songs, but this is fun too. Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall are good /5().

The first disc of this deluxe 2-CD set for the Popeye soundtrack features the original music from the film with the previously unreleased score composed by Thomas Pierson. The second disc features previously unreleased soundtrack demos by the film’s composer, Harry Nilsson, including two songs written for the film but never used, “Everybody's Got To Eat,” and “I'd Rather Be Me.”.
Harry Edward Nilsson III (J – Janu ), usually credited as Nilsson, was an American singer-songwriter who achieved the peak of his commercial success in the early s. His work is characterized by pioneering overdub experiments, returns to the Great American Songbook, and fusions of Caribbean sounds.  A tenor with a three-and-a-half octave range, Nilsson was.
Not one of Harry's best collections of songs (tends to get overrated by fans because of how rare it is) but still way better than Altman's stupid "Popeye" movie deserved. Shelley Duvall's version of "He Needs Me" is definitely the best track but "He's Large" (Shelley again), "I'm Mean" and "Everything Is Food.
