Noel Harrison – Noel Harrison

A review of Noel Harrison (the son of actor Sir Rex Harrison) self titled album from 1966 is now added.

Apart from also being an actor Noel had a music career in the 60s and early 70s. Best know for performing
Windmills Of Your Mind from the 1968 movie The Thomas Crown Affair which won an Oscar for best original song.

He recorded songs written by him, but mostly covers by writers such as Judy Collins, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Donovan etc. The music he released was a kind of folky soft pop with heavy orchestrations. On this album he covers four songs by Bob Dylan.
