The profound musical gifts of Harry Nilsson are on full display in THE ESSENTIAL NILSSON. This two-disc set presents some of Nilsson’s most well-known songs, and includes two previously unreleased tracks, remastered tracks, and single versions.
Two essential Ringo Starr albums, 1973’s Ringo and 1974’s Goodnight Vienna, have been remastered for worldwide reissue on heavyweight, 180-gram vinyl LPs. Both albums are available now for preorder and will be released on January 19, 2018.
In 1973, Ringo released his self-titled Ringo, which yielded three Top 5 Billboard Pop singles. All of Ringo’s Beatles bandmates joined him to participate in the album; Richard Perry produced and its notable guest players also include Billy Preston on organ, Harry Nilsson background vocals, Klaus Voormann on bass and sax, and Robbie Robertson on guitar.
Ringo released his fourth solo album, Goodnight Vienna in 1974, racking up more hits. Perry, Preston, Voormann, Nilsson, and Robertson once again joined Ringo to collaborate in the studio, among others.
