Saturday evening tunes: Maybe I'll live a life of regret

Continuing with our p3 tribute to the great song-writing team of Kalmar and Ruby, here's Harry Nilsson performing on a BBC special promoting his insufficiently appreciated (a euphemism for “love-it-or-hate-it”) 1973 album “A Little Touch of Schmilsson in the Night.”

As much as I like the three-LP collaboration between Linda Ronstadt and Nelson Riddle, "A Little Touch of Schmilsson" remains for me the first and best example of a 60's rocker tackling the Great American Songbook.

Rod Stewart, bless his heart, is a distant third.
