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.

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.
The soundtrack to the new independent film Frances Ha features an eclectic selection of tunes including “Miss Butter’s Lament” by Harry Nilsson. Directed by Noah Baumbach, Frances Ha follows the story of an aimless young New York City woman, portrayed by Greta Gerwig, who has a hard time following through with her plans. The movie, which is in select theaters now, was co-written by Baumbach and Gerwig.
Harry’s “Everybody’s Talkin,'” which is already famous for its use in the film Midnight Cowboy, has been included on yet another soundtrack — this time for The Hangover Part III, in theaters now.
