1. Neil Diamond gave a London audience at the BBC Television Centre a concert of some of his biggest hits on September 4th, 1971. The set list included, Sweet Caroline, Solitary Man, Cracklin Rosie, Done Too Soon, A Modern Day Version Of Love, He Ain’t Heavy...He's My Brother, Holy Holy, I Am....I Said and Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show. (38:57)

2. Donovan (Donovan Philips Leitch), is a British singer-songwriter and guitarist. Emerging from the British folk scene, he developed an eclectic, distinctive style that blended folk, jazz, pop, psychedelia, and world music. See him on August 12, 1972, perform Jennifer Juniper, There Is A Mountain, Catch The Wind, Happiness Runs, Mellow Yellow and others. (29:15)

3. Harry Nilsson's finest hour on film. Taped for England's BBC in 1971, this simple and effective set of performances has everything one could ask for when seeing the rarely seen Nilsson live. His somber reading of Life Line is simply heartbreaking. Harry performs as a live trio with himself on Walk Right Back and Coconut, where he uses lip syncing gorillas for visuals. Harry introduces two videos from The Point! ("Think About Your Troubles" and "Are You Sleeping"). There just isn't a better, more visually pleasing representation of Harry Nilsson at work. (33:36)
