SRI Records Celebrates Harry Nilsson's 75th Birthday With "Dream On Nilsson"
SRI Records releases "Dream On Nilsson" as a tribute to Harry Nilsson on what would be his 75th birthday and as part of our efforts to have him inducted into the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame.
The interest in Dream On Nilsson's release was near and dear to CEO Shelly Liebowitz's heart. A long-time close friend who spent lots of time with Harry and John Lennon, Liebowitz first met Dream on Nilsson when they joined the effort trying to convince the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame that Harry Nilsson should be inducted. According to Liebowitz, "I was very impressed with their love and respect for Harry's work and desire to bring it to a new young audience. The recordings show true respect to Harry's original renditions yet sound much more current. Harry's music is known to everyone even if you don't realize it. From 'Everybody's Talkin' At Me' from Easy Rider, to writing hits for The Monkees, Three Dog Night and many other artists, to his animated children's story 'The Point' or the silliness of 'Lime In The Coconut', Harry is still very much with us. He was a very unique artist and person. He never toured or even performed live. His songs touched us in a way that most never do, whether it's 'My Best Friend' from the television show The Courtship of Eddie's Father, 'Me And My Arrow', 'One Is The Loneliest Number', 'Gotta Get Up' or even the outrageous 'You're Breaking My Heart' - everyone has a Nilsson favorite. Harry was the first artist to decide to record an album of standards and I remember when I asked him why, he just said, 'My voice is as good as it will ever be so now is the time.'"
"The group of us trying to get 'Harry In The Hall' is quickly growing and includes many songwriters, rock stars, fans and friends. It is my hope that the release of Dream On Nilsson will help spread the word and showcase a few lesser known Nilsson originals," says Liebowitz
