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.
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.
