Harry's Cowboy Operation

Harry's Cowboy Operation
United States
August 1999
In the August, 1999, issue of England's Mojo The Music Magazine, Johnny Black wrote a featured piece for the magazine's "Time Machine" column entitled "Harry's Cowboy Operation." Datelined "Los Angeles, California, August 16, 1969", the article recalled the story of Harry's and producer Rick Jarrard's discovery and recording of the Fred Neil tune which everyone still thinks Harry wrote. Harry is quoted as finding the song in demo form, earmarked for one of Jarrard's other acts, a band called Stone Country. Skidoo fans will recall that Stone Country appeared "as themselves" in Otto Preminger's legendary comedy/satire/movie/whatever.) The article follows the song on it's two-year journey from recording (November 8, 1967) to it's release (the second time) in August of 1969, "giving songwriter Nilsson his chart debut with the only song on his LP not written by him."
