Had a quick listen to the versions that are already online atm. These are the ones I reported to be connected to HN's version: Neil Diamond, Bobby Goldsboro, Engelbert Humperdinck, Waldo De Los Rios, Elastic Band, The Beautiful South, Julio Iglesias & Ania Dąbrowska... The rest all have a very different feel from both the original AND Nilsson's cover, so I'll leave these to the ones who know most about this... Walter? MrBlond?
Yes, I think it's safe to link them all with Nilsson's, except Spanky's of course. I'm a big fan of Fred Neil's oeuvre actually, but his version is/was seldom heard.
I'll have a look into this later today, can't believe there's only one cover of the Harry Nilsson version... pretty sure most based their cover on this one, not on the original one (note the different - much better - guitar in Nilsson's cover)
