The profound musical gifts of Harry Nilsson are on full display in THE RCA ALBUMS COLLECTION. This deluxe 17-CD box set, available now, presents Nilsson’s definitive 14 U.S. albums from RCA. Bonus material on those albums add up to 65 tracks, of which 26 are previously unreleased. Adding to the box set’s historical provenance are three newly-compiled CDs containing 58 tracks, of which an additional 29 tracks are previously unreleased.
Harry Nilsson is featured on The Monkees’ new album, GOOD TIMES!, in stores today, on the title track released as a new duet with Micky Dolenz.
To help bring their 50th anniversary full circle, the three surviving band members completed songs for GOOD TIMES! that were originally written and recorded for the group during the 1960s. Harry Nilsson wrote the title track, “Good Times,” which he recorded at a session with Michael Nesmith in January 1968. The production was never completed, so the band returned to the original session tape (featuring Nilsson’s guide vocal) and have created a duet with his close friend Dolenz. “Good Times” marks the first time Dolenz and Nilsson have sung together since Dolenz’s May 1973 single “Daybreak.”
