Nyro, Laura - Spread Your Wings and Fly : Live at the Fillmore East, May 30, 1971 (Mega Blowout Sale)

SKU 23-Float 6385
“Live archive release from the acclaimed singer/songwriter. Laura Nyro was an American songwriter, singer, and pianist. She achieved critical acclaim with her own recordings, particularly the albums Eli and the Thirteenth Confession (1968) and New York Tendaberry (1969).
Her style was a hybrid of Brill Building-style pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, show tunes, rock, and soul. Between 1968 and 1970, a number of artists had hits with Nyro's songs: The 5th Dimension with "Blowing Away", "Wedding Bell Blues", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sweet Blindness", and "Save the Country"; Blood, Sweat & Tears and Peter, Paul and Mary with "And When I Die"; and Barbra Streisand with "Stoney End", "Time and Love", and "Hands off the Man (Flim Flam Man)". Her best-selling single was a recording of Carole King and Gerry Goffin's "Up on the Roof".
A number of these songs are featured here on this release, which sat unreleased for over 30 years!”

“There are a few live albums by Laura Nyro but this one is by far the best in my opinion. There is some tape drop out and her voice breaks a couple of times but the sheer intensity and sublime beauty of her performance carries all before it, This is Laura live at her peak in the early seventies and by the songs she performs seems to be between "Christmas and the Beads of Sweat" and "Gonna Take A Miracle".
If you only have one live performance by this wonderful lady then this is the one to go for.”-Nathaniel Needle
