Album Notes

The Nylons: Marc Connors, Paul Cooper, Claude Morrison, Arnold Robinson (vocals).Engineers: John Naslen, George Semkiw, Val Garay.Recorded at Manta Sound and Sounds Interchange, Toronto, Canada and Record One, Los Angeles, California.All songs written or co-written by members of The Nylons except "Happy Together" (Garry Bonner/Alan Gordon), "Chain Gang" (Sam Cooke), "A Touch Of Your Hand" (Brian Allen) and "Kiss Him Goodbye" (Dale Frashuer/Gary DeCarlo/Paul Leka).This is part of Windham Hill Records' Essential Windham Hill series.The Nylons' performing career began in 1980 at a time when a cappella outfits were not in vogue. The fact that the Nylons were unlike any a cappella act on the scene made them stand out and earned them accolades and a devoted audience almost immediately. The band has existed in one form or another for more than 25 years, but it is the original quartet of Claude Morrison, Arnold Robinson, Paul Cooper, and Mark Connors that created their most beloved recordings. Happy Together was the band's fourth album and is probably their most popular, commercially. Taking a small step forward from Seamless, Happy Together still uses electronic percussion but not in an intrusive way. In fact, the rhythms of the album add a worldly vibe to the recordings, and allow the boys to be a bit more playful with their voices. The most successful tracks on the album were covers of "Happy Together" and "Kiss Him Goodbye," but the spirited version of "Chain Gang" deserves mention. As on their previous releases, the band's originals, mostly by Cooper, are the standouts on the album. "This Island Earth" is top-notch and remains one of Cooper's finest, while Arnold Robinson's vocals on "Crazy in Love (Morning Comes Early)" and Connors voice carrying "It's What They Call Magic" lifts Cooper's writing to a new level. Morrison's "Grown Man Cry" is stunning, and the song's simple, touching arrangement sounds like it could have easily fit on One Size Fits All. Connors and Cooper penned the joyous "Face In The Crowd," another notch in their belts. Only the trite "Dance of Love" fails to please, although it's certainly not a terrible entry in their catalog. After the slightly disappointing Seamless, Happy Together was a step in the right direction and sounds like a true compromise between the guys' artistic approach to their music, and the record label's insistence on a more commercial sound. ~ Steve "Spaz" Schnee

For CD Player


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
