Harry Nilsson: Rarities Collection

Our look at the special releases and limited editions stemming from the vinyl-focused biannual holiday

While wildly known for his Kermit-approved tune, “Coconut,” Harry Nilsson’s true brilliance is oddly not that widely celebrated outside of music nerd circles (also despite his Beatles backing). But for those who love the Bushwick-born artist, RSD’s special Rarities Collection release will stand as a sought-after vinyl edition for years to come. Containing a collection of songs culled from his magnificent 17-CD box set and previously unreleased demos and radio spots, this collection of obscure songs, pressed on 180g vinyl and individually numbered, is Nilsson in both it music and style.
