Harry Nilsson's wonderful 1967 debut album, Pandemonium Shadow Show, didn't sell a lick, but it caught the attention of the Beatles. Lennon and McCartney's keen interest helped get the follow-up Aerial Ballet made, and it further showcases Nilsson's sophisticated vocal style, far-reaching musical interests and keen sense of humor. While the album didn't sell well initially, the entertainment industry took notice. Three Dog Night had a big hit with "One," while Nilsson's cover of Fred Neil's "Everybody's Talkin'" became the theme song to Midnight Cowboy. Harry Nilsson would finally become a star.
