Early Tymes is an album consisting of demos (fifteenth album) by Harry Nilsson who recorded for Scott Turner in 1962, when he was still a struggling musician, whose regular job was working in a bank. He was reportedly paid $5 per song to sing vocals to Turner's acoustic guitar. The demos were overdubbed by various studio musicians (including Leon Russell, Herb Alpert and Hal Blaine) in 1962, and then again were dubbed in 1977 and released on the album Early Tymes in 1977. The demos were then re-dubbed and released in 1994 and released as Nilsson '62: The Debut Sessions and contains previously unreleased demos. Hollywood Dreamer was released in 2001 without any of the overdubs, and contains the unreleased demos "Oh I Wonder" and "On Time".
