The profound musical gifts of Harry Nilsson are on full display in THE ESSENTIAL NILSSON. This two-disc set presents some of Nilsson’s most well-known songs, and includes two previously unreleased tracks, remastered tracks, and single versions.
Harry Nilsson’s concept album The Point turns 50 this year; to celebrate, the 1971 animated film adapted from the music will be released digitally and on BluRay for the first time.
NPR’s Scott Simon spoke to Mike Lookinland, who voiced Oblio and went on to play Bobby on The Brady Bunch, and Kiefo Nilsson, Harry’s son, about their memories of the film and the simple power of Harry Nilsson’s songwriting.
