Quite possibly one of the best musicians you’ve never heard of.  Harry Nilsson was named by the Beatles as their favorite American artist when he was still a relatively unknown musician.

To understand their admiration, listen to the entire album “Nilsson Schmilsson” produced by Richard Perry.  If you want to skip to two of the best songs, listen to “Jump Into the Fire” & “Without You.”

For a more in depth look, watch the recently released documentary “Who is Harry Nilsson?”  A stark and depressing portrayal of Nilsson’s incredible talent and gradual self destruction.  Nilsson died in 1993 at age 52 of a heart attack.
