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.
Possessed of a sweetly guileless voice and a knack for hummable melodies, offbeat pop genius Harry Nilsson eschewed the trappings of rock stardom to follow his own eccentric vision. Like The Beatles — who famously named Nilsson as their favorite American recording artist and whom he later befriended — this included detours into the world of film. Following the 75th anniversary of Nilsson’s birth (in Brooklyn!), BAMcinématek looks back at the wild, wonderfully weird movie career of one of the greatest and most enigmatic singer-songwriters of the 1960s and 70s.
