Joining the recently announced biography and RCA box set, Varese Sarabande Records CD of Harry Nilsson’s, Flash Harry, is coming August 13. Originally released on LP and cassette, and only outside the US, by Mercury Records in 1980, Flash Harry was the last album Nilsson released.
The new CD includes four bonus tracks: “Old Dirt Road (alt. version),” “Feet,” “Leave The Rest To Molly” and “She Drifted Away.”
The last three tracks are previously unreleased outtakes from the Flash Harry sessions which took place at Cherokee Studios in Los Angeles. They feature Lowell George, Fred Tackett, and Bill Payne (of Little Feat); Ringo Starr; Van Dyke Parks; Jim Keltner; Jim Gordon; Klaus Voormann, Dr. John; and Donald “Duck” Dunn.
The CD includes an eight page booklet with additional liner notes by Jerry McCulley. A vinyl version of Flash Harry (limited to 2,500 units) is also planned. The LP will not contain the four bonus tracks.
