40 Year Itch : In a Cardboard Town

Seattle pedestrians, 1975


   From an album originally titled God's Greatest Hits comes Harry Nilsson's "Puget Sound", recorded, like the rest of the album, in the midst of a cocaine and alcohol fueled party. Upon first listen to Duit On Mon Dei, released in March of 1975, Nilsson's mother said " Harry, I can hear the ice cubes clinking". The title is from the motto on the front cover of the Ringo album.

For the album Nilsson made the promotional video below at the LA Forum which he paid $800 to rent for three hours.
