  1. Well, Max has the ultimate say since he took his screenname from them! But to me, perhaps not the best song they wrote (“Without You” probably takes that title, but Nilsson did it so much better than them) but it is my favorite record by them. And why not with George Harrison and Leon Russell helping out.
