Harry Nilsson
Nilsson


At the end of 1964, Harry Nilsson signed a contract with Tower, a label recently formed by Capitol Records. Harry recorded a few tracks as demos for Tower then Tower bought some other demos by the New Salvation Singers to which Harry added vocals and it was relased as Spotlight On Nilsson in 1966. Emi/capitol re-released the album early 70's, probably to cash in on Harry's succes. I don't know when it was released exactly because there's no mention of it on the label or on de cover.

Although the songs are available as "Spotlight On Nilsson" nothing can be found about this Emidisc release wich has a beautiful sleeve by an unknown artist (mayby it's by Patrick who made some beautiful sleeves (like this one) for EMI). Let me be the first to show this albumart to the world.

Tracks:
1 "The Path That Leads to Trouble" / 2 "Good Times" / 4 "I'm Gonna Lose My Mind" / 5 "She's Yours" / 6 "Sixteen Tons" / 7 "Born In Grenada" / 8 "You Can't Take Your Love (Away From Me)" / 9 "Growin' Up" / 10 "Do You Believe"

Louis Prima
The Capitol Collector's Series
A must have for all swing fans.

Louis Prima was an innovator without equal. Jump blues/jazz icons Louis Jordan and Slim Gaillard shared Prima's penchant for combining R&B with swing and good humor, but Prima's cross-section of influences is as singular at it is striking. When Prima made his major impact in the pre-rock & roll '50s, it was a downright bizarre experience to see/hear an Italian-American combining blues, swing, pop, R&B and Italian songs in a wild, unfettered style that foreshadowed the arrival of Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis. If you're a newcomer to Prima's work, you'd be hard pressed to find a better introduction than this 26-track compilation that includes his most popular material. With R&B saxman Sam Butera and singer (wife) Keely Smith as his foils, Prima was an arresting, original voice in American music, and this collection makes the reasons plain.
