Johnny Niles was a pseudonym for Harry Nilsson, who released a single, "Donna (I Understand)"/"Wig Job," under the Johnny Niles billing for Mercury in 1963. "Donna (I Understand)" is a tame early-'60s teen idol/doo wop ballad, and "Wig Job" a more uptempo but similarly derivative lightweight early-'60s pop/rock ditty. Both sides were written by Nilsson, who does show his formidable upper-register vocals are already in good form on each track.
