I watched the documentary “Who Is Harry Nilsson?”

I have been watching the DVD of the documentary Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)?.

The format is very conventional – interviews with family and friends plus performance clips. It’s very well done, though and goes over his good points and bad ones. I recommend checking it out. He was a unique writer and performer who does not get much attention now but his best material still holds up. If you don’t know his music, this is a great introduction.

I posted links to the trailer and entire film on YouTube.

I also posted links to some videos that have briefer clips in the film.

Pussy Cats, his 1974 album, was a mixed bag but I love his cover of “Many Rivers to Cross”. It was produced by John Lennon and reminds me of his own records of that era.
