Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)?

Last Night I watched Who Is Harry Nilsson (And Why Is Everybody Talkin’ About Him)?, a behind the music type documentary about Nilsson which is currently available as a free online preview. Today, thanks to the movie, I've been listening to Nilsson all day. It's easy to forget at this remove how talented he was both as a singer and a songwriter. The movie is well worth the time. There are even a couple of Nicky Hopkins sightings in some footage taken during the Nilsson Schmilsson sessions.

One of my favorites, "The Lottery Song," with Hopkins on piano.
