Never Before Released Nilsson Songs Compiled For ‘Losst and Founnd’ Album

An album of never before released songs by Harry Nilsson has been compiled for a brand new Nilsson album ‘Lost and Founnd’.

‘Losst and Founnd’ comes 25 years after the death of Harry Nilsson from a heart attack at age 52. The album features nine original songs plus two covers, by Jimmy Webb as well as Yoko Ono’s ‘Listen, The Snow Is Falling’.

In the late 60s John Lennon found a best friend in Harry Nilsson. At a press conference in 1968 when asked his favourite American artist he said ‘Nilsson’. At the same event Paul McCartney was asked to name his favourite American group and he said “Nilsson’.

When Nilsson recorded his 1971 album ‘Nilsson Schmilsson’ he covered Apple Records band Badfinger’s ‘Without You’. It became a global hit for him.

When Lennon and Yoko Ono separated in 1973, John moved to Los Angeles and Harry became his drinking buddy, along with Micky Dolenz of The Monkees, Keith Moon of The Who and his former Beatle buddy Ringo Starr. Ringo, John and Harry lived together in a house in the Hollywood Hills. In 1973 it was John and Harry together who were ejected from a Smothers Brothers show in West Hollywood over the infamous tampon incident when the pair where heckling the act and placing tampons on their foreheads.

John Lennon produced Harry’s 1974 album ‘Pussycats’.

Harry was married three times and had seven children. He died in 1994.

The 2011 documentary ‘Who Is Harry Nilsson’ is an excellent account of his life.

‘Losst and Founnd’ will be released on 22 November.
