that's real class the way he has (Laura Nyro's son) in his display name. the bredders onroad must be really impressed with that!
I like his SSP, not bad really.
How on earth did you find this?

All of sudden, I've fallen in love with her. All I have is Gonna Take A Miracle and her version of The Bells is going to lull me to sleep tonight. I must find more of her records.

They're not hard to find! The Stoned Soul Picnic comp was my basic intro to Laura Nyro, but I've since purchased all of the studio albums. They all have something to recommend them, so consistent was her (sporadic) career.

I bought "Smile" a long time ago at a flea market, and didn't really get it on the few listens I gave it. I really should give Nyro another chance.
Maybe I'll look for that compilation

Totally agree -- not a fan of Bette at all, but her point about Laura's courage was spot on. The performance following was good, too!

Never quite had a handle on where Laura's style came from. Just heard Fontella Bass' version of the Goffin/King song "Oh No, Not My Baby," though, and it doesn't sound unlike her. Maybe she's rooted a fair amount in Brill Building, etc.
