Harry Nilsson left behind a wonderful collection of albums and singles before his tragic and early death at 52 years of age. Among them were his Gold RCA releases, Nilsson Schmilsson (1971), and Son of Schmilsson (1971). Tucked into those 2 albums were memorable tracks like “Without You”, “Coconut”, “Jump Into The Fire”, “Spaceman”, and for the FM crowd, “I’d Rather Be Dead”, and “You’re Breaking My Heart”. Beyond those, he produced 14 other albums, including the 2019 Omnivore release of his final album recorded before his death (Losst and Founnd). He enjoyed an early hit with “Everybody’s Talkin'” featured in Midnight Cowboy.

On February 19, 2021, Crimson Productions (via Demon Music Group UK) will release a 3CD Nilsson compilation with 45 tracks pulled from all of his RCA era of 13 albums. This nice 3CD collection joins the Demon Music Group Gold series.
