Harry & Me is a beautifully designed treasure trove of over 280 memories of Harry Nilsson by the fans and musicians who loved him most, illustrated with rare and personal photos and memorabilia. The first 1,000 copies come with a bonus CD — Harry on Harry — rare recordings from the 60s, 70s and 80s of Harry Nilsson talking about everything from Bertrand Russell to The Beatles.
“Simon Smith and the Amazing Dancing Bear” was the first Randy Newman song that Harry Nilsson covered. It was recorded as the last track on the Harry album in 1969. It pointed the way for what was coming next – an entire album of Newman covers in 1970.
