Legacy Of The Point


"Finally, a new generation of kids can float away on the entrancing cartoon creation of Harry Nilsson (1941-94), the American singer-songwriter who counted the Beatles among his admirers. The Point is a prime example of mass-culture outreach by a countercultural artist (dig the psychedelic number ''P.O.V. Waltz''). B+"
- Ken Tucker, Entertainment Weekly

"Never has nonconformity been celebrated with such charm."
-Jeff Miers, Buffalo News

"If there's a fan of Harry Nilsson on your shopping list then rejoice, because in front of you now you see the proverbial no-brainer."

Daryl Hall & John Oates Working with Borgata Hotel to Aid in Hurricane Sandy Relief in Atlantic City
Daryl Hall & John Oates are working with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and Live Nation to raise money in an effort to bring relief to Atlantic City and surrounding areas in wake of Hurricane Sandy and the millions of people affected by the storm.

Daryl Hall & John Oates will be performing a sold-out show at the Borgata Event Center on Saturday, December 1 and are donating their performance fee and all proceeds from the event to the American Red Cross.

"In light of the devastation that Hurricane Sandy caused for the people of Atlantic City, we're going to donate 100% of the proceeds from our sold out show at the Borgata on December 1st to the Red Cross. We will also be selling an event T-shirt with all of the proceeds going to the Red Cross, as well," said Daryl Hall and John Oates.

Says Daryl Hall: "This really means a lot to me. These are my people that got hurt. This is my neighborhood."

“This is a great way to give back," said Geoff Gordon, Regional President of Live Nation Philadelphia. "We want to show our dedication to our friends and family whose lives and livelihoods were affected, and show that Atlantic City is still open for business."

“It really means a lot to have one of the greatest musical duos in history support the disaster relief effort here in Atlantic City,” said Borgata Senior Vice President of Operations, Joe Lupo. “We are grateful to be working with Daryl Hall and John Oates as well as Live Nation, with the collective goal focused towards helping those affected by Hurricane Sandy.”
