The Harry Nilsson Web Pages (http://www.harrynilsson.com/) celebrates its 10th anniversary in November of 2006.

The Harry Nilsson Web Pages (http://www.harrynilsson.com/) celebrates its 10th anniversary this November. The web site for fans of the late singer/songwriter was created in November of 1996 by Roger Smith. Over the years, the web site grew from a single page to thousands of pages including extensive biographical articles about Harry Nilsson, an annotated discography, and information on the films and TV shows featuring Nilsson's recordings.

Harry Nilsson died in 1994 after a long career in which he recorded more than a dozen albums, earned two Grammy® awards, and wrote songs with lasting appeal. Nilsson's first hit was with his recording of "Everybody's Talkin'" which was featured in the film Midnight Cowboy. Soon afterwards, Three Dog Night's recording of Nilsson's "One" reached the top ten.

Nilsson's 1971 album, Nilsson Schmilsson, became his best-selling album and "Without You", the album's first single, became a world-wide hit in 1972. Nilsson followed Nilsson Schmilsson with Son of Schmilsson and its chart-topping single, "Coconut."

Nilsson's other accomplishments include the story and music for The Point!, an animated made-for-TV movie and the score and songs for the 1980 film Popeye starring Robin Williams. His songs have been used in the soundtracks from many other films including Goodfellas, You've Got Mail, Forrest Gump, and Ridley Scott's A Good Year.

Created and maintained by fans of Harry Nilsson, the Harry Nilsson Web Pages is perhaps the most comprehensive site on the Internet dedicated to a single artist. With the permission of the author, the site reproduces Dawn Eden's One Last Touch of Nilsson, a detailed biography of Harry Nilsson based on his last interview. The site's discography documents more than 300 albums and 500 songs on which Nilsson appears. More than 70 movies and TVs featuring music or appearances by Harry Nilsson are listed along with summaries of more than 200 newspaper and magazine articles about Nilsson. In total, the Harry Nilsson Web Pages contains more than 10,000 articles about Harry Nilsson and his music.
