An amazing and widely unknown talent -- hence the title. An uncompromising original with a -->3½<-- octave range, who succumbed before his time to the bane of addiction, along with countless others. If his award winning cover of Badfinger's "Without You" doesn't stir emotion in you, check your pulse. His '71 animated piece, "The Point", narrated by Ringo, is something I think anyone of that groovy generation would enjoy, btw.

Sad sad story of one of the icons of popular music. Very well done with lots of inside information.

This "documentary" is more about the people who gained success from Harry Nilsson. Just listen to his songs instead.

I can really hear the cross pollination between Harry and the Beatles.

Love the breakup song.

This is a really good documentary about a singer/songwriter everyone should know. Good stuff...
