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. Bonus material on those albums add up to 65 tracks, of which 26 are previously unreleased. 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.
Lee Blackman, attorney for Harry Nilsson’s estate, tells Billboard that Harry’s son Kief is recording an album of his dad’s songs, including “All I Think About Is You,” “Rainmaker,” “Daybreak,” “Kojak Columbo,” “Maybe,” which was released on Barbra Streisand’s 1971 Stoney End album, and “The Flying Saucer Song,” which was recorded for Pussy Cats.
“It’s a work in progress,” says Blackman, who explains that the record has no release date or major label attached to it. He says that Kief is recording the LP with Cal Campbell, the son of singer-songwriter Glen Campbell. … Kief has two working titles in mind for the record, Nilsson Sings Nilsson and Son of Son of Schmilsson.
