Harry Nilsson released his eighth LP “Son of Schmilsson” on July 10, 1972. Nilsson was being pressured to produce a follow-up album similar to his 1971 breakthrough, Nilsson Schmilsson, but instead, he created a more eccentric work. The album was produced by Richard Perry and featured musical contributions from former Beatles Ringo Starr and George Harrison. Other musicians on the recording include Nicky Hopkins, Klaus Voormann, Bobby Keys, Lowell George and Peter Frampton. Among the album’s tracks are “You’re Breakin’ My Heart” and the US hit “Spaceman”.
Most of the sessions were extensively filmed, at the request of Nilsson. The footage was to be used for a planned documentary, titled “Did Somebody Drop His Mouse?”, but the film was never released.
The album cover for “Son of Schmilsson” is a picture of Nilsson taken at Harrison’s home, Friar Park.
Happy 46th Birthday to “Son of Schmilsson”!!!
Why isn’t Harry in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?
