A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night is an album of classic 20th-century standards sung by American singer Harry Nilsson. The album was arranged by Frank Sinatra's arranger Gordon Jenkins, and produced by Derek Taylor. In 1988, it was reissued as A Touch More Schmilsson in the Night, containing an intro and outro (studio chatter) and six additional songs from the recording sessions.

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.

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.

Nilsson was nearly a decade ahead of Linda Ronstadt and other nouveau crooners in hiring a conductor/arranger of the pre-rock era (in this case Gordon Jenkins) and recording an album of standards before a full orchestra. And he did it better than most, proving to be a marvelous interpreter of songs like "What'll I Do?" and "Makin' Whoopee!" His version of "As Time Goes By" became a minor hit.

However, if Nilsson Schmilsson was desperate, Son of Schmilsson sounded a little bored. Or something you'd imagine a ridiculously talented singer might come up with as an afterthought before heading out for the night. It's not that the songs are terrible: "Remember (Christmas)", hokey title aside, is a classic Nilsson ballad, perhaps taking a cue from his pal Randy Newman, but delivered with a nuance that sounds very close to sincerity.
