Fred Wolf
The Point Cartoon

 ©1971 TV/2004 DVD ABC/BMG
XviD MPEG-4 AVI/113 Kbps DVD Rip
The Point tells the story of Oblio and his dog Arrow through narration and song. The Point is narrated by Ringo Starr and has songs written and sung by Harry Nilsson.

This allegorical classic had a simple but swear message –accept everyone for who they are and not force them to fit into a preconceived conception of who they should be.

The Yardbirds
Little Games Session Tapes

 ©1967 EMI / Bootleg ©2009 Naughty Dog
320 Kbps Soundboard recordings
Well, these are legends here, or at least legends in the making. Keith Relf and Jim McCarty went on to form Renaissance and no points for guessing which supergroup Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones (who sessioned here) were a part of. The years have been kind to the album; fans wanted more Yardbirds and, in 1992, a two-CD set - The Little Games Sessions And More - was released. The tracks on this bootleg  are rough mixes which were made during the compiling of that EMI 2-CD set.
As the recordings are very nice on thereselves I would not have posted them here if tracks 117 to 128 weren't the Ten Little Indians takes. Ten Little Indians was written by Harry Nilsson.
101-116 You Stole My Love (various takes) / Tracks 117-128 Ten Little Indians (Various takes) / 130 Little Games / 131. Puzzles / 132 No Excess Baggage / 133 Smile On Me / 134 Drinking Muddy Water / 135 Tinker Tailor Solder Sailor / 201 De Lane Lea Lee (Backwards) / 202 De Lane Lea Lee (Forwards) / 203. White Summer / 204 Stealing Stealing / 205 I Remember The Nigh / 206 Only The Black Rose / 207 Glimpses / 208 Little Soldier Boy / 209 Never Mind / 210-212 Glimpses (various takes) / 213 New York City Blues (1990 Stereo Remix) / 214 W.O.R.

Watership Down TV Serie Soundtrack

 ©2000 Polydor
256 Kbps CD Rip
The TV series based on Richard Adams' novel "Watership Down" was scored by Mike Batt. He orchestrated and conducted the score for a full (80 piece) symphony orchestra. It was recorded with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with whom Mike has worked many times. In 2003, the second season was nominated for a Gemini Award for Best Original Music Score for a Dramatic Series
The soundtrack to "Watership Down" is well worth a listen but very hard to find for a reasonable price. If you don't want to pay $70,00 but wants to have it anyway you can press the downloadbutton.

Harry Nilsson

 ©1971 RCA SPS-33-567
320 Kbps CD Rip
A limited, not commercial available, promotion-only release to promote The Point! and Harry's earlier albums. Scatalogue intercuts portions of many of Harry's songs into a long medley. The original LP sleeve was the same material as an LP-inner-sleeve instead of a normal cardboard cover.

This is a rip from a CD-bootleg from Remasters Workshop. They did an incredible good cleaning job. All titles listed are excerpts, except for "You Can't Do That," which is included in its entirety.
Tracklist as it appears on the artwork. This is slightly different than the way it is played.
01 1941 / 02 Little Cowboy / 03 The Puppy Song / 04 Me And My Arrow / 05 You Can't Do That / 06 Together / 07 I Said Goodbye To Me / 08 One / 08a Intro to "Pandemonium Shadow Show" / 09 Mr. Richland's Favorite Song / 10 Mr. Bojangles / 11 I Guess The Lord Must Be In New York City / 12 Marchin' Down Broadway / 13 Fairfax Rag / 14 Everybody's Talkin' / 15 City Life / 16 Open Your Window (ends abruptly on the album) / 17 River Deep, Mountain High / 17a Little Cowboy / 18 Freckles / 19 Cuddly Toy / 19a One / 20 Life Line / 21 Think About Your Troubles / 22 Bath / 22a Daddy's Song / 23 END/Narration from "The Point"
Artwork is included.
