  • Nilsson1The profound musical gifts of singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson, an artist whose fans ranged from all four Beatles to the Monkees, Randy Newman, Keith Moon, Jimmy Webb, and dozens more, are celebrated in July 2013 as Legacy Recordings honors Nilsson as “Artist of the Month.”  Released to coincide with the month-long celebration is Harry Nilsson’s The RCA Albums Collection, a 17-CD box set released by RCA/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT.  The RCA Albums Collection  will be a must-have for Nilsson devotees, and a seductive lure for those whose awareness is limited to his Grammy Award®-winning versions of Badfinger’s “Without You” (#1) and Fred Neil’s “Everybody’s Talkin’” (a #6 hit from the soundtrack to Midnight Cowboy, 1969).  Then there are the notable covers of his own songs by Three Dog Night (“One”), the Monkees (“Cuddly Toy”), the Yardbirds (“Ten Little Indians”), and Blood, Sweat & Tears (“Without Her”). The release of The RCA Albums Collection  coincides with the July 18th arrival of Nilsson: The Life of a Singer-Songwriter by Alyn Shipton.  Published by Oxford University Press, this is the first ever full-length biography of Nilsson, drawing on interviews with family, friends, and associates, plus material from Nilsson’s unfinished autobiography.
