John Lennon produced the latest album of the Beatles imitator, who is so good that he nearly fooled the group itself when he began recording several years ago. It's a hit, too. From Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" to Nilsson's own "Don't Forget Me," this is the kind of humor, energy and plain good music almost all superstar productions miss.
