Harry Nilsson - Popeye
The Original Demotapes
Although Robin is very populair (Mork) nobody went to the theater to watch the movie. The original soundtrack (upload later...) isn't a succes either. Not that odd if you keep in mind that the songs were sung by the actors Robin Williams, Shelly Duval en Paul L Smith and not by their writer Harry Nilsson.
Harry did record demosongs for the actors and those can be found on this bootlegalbum. This album is quite good and could have made a good Nilsson album.
