Another GREAT Live Performance

"I guess I am very lucky to have this cd. I actually picked it up on a BMG clearance sale! I don't even remember how much I paid for it, I basically bought it on a whim. I'm not a die hard Laura Nyro fan, but I was vaguely familiar with her style of music. When I was much younger, I had obtained a promotional copy of her "Nested" album (1978) which is also a "hard-to-find" out of print gem, and I liked her music. This is from a kid who mostly listened to Led Zeppelin and Aerosmith!

The quality of her voice and musical styling really came through and "touched me." I also realised over the years as I collected music that some performers are simply best "Live" and the number of live records offered reflected that. Niel Diamond is another artist with many, many live albums. There is a reason for this. Laura Nyro is no exception. She has such an energy that comes out and can only be captured during a real live performance.

Laura Nyro's "Live at the Bottom Line" has become one of my favorite discs. I can't imagine any of her fans that would be disappointed in this fantastic set of songs. Her voice is absolutely beautiful, and the musicianship and sound quality is excellant! If you are a fan of Laura's, or can simply appreciate good music and a great Live performance, do not hesitate to seek this album out.

****Highly Recommended****"

"This is my favorite Laura Nyro live album.

By the time of this recording (1988), Laura had pretty much outgrown her
"fragile artist" stage. Instead of whispering a few serious, spacey words in between songs to the audience, here she is loose, freewheeling, at times raucous, and appears to be having a ball with a hot-rocking band.

Her other live albums: "Seasons Of Light" (1978) was jazz-fusion based,
"The Loom's Desire" (recorded '93 and '94) was late-period, intimate Nyro
in a small club with just piano and backing vocalists, and "Spread Your Wings" (recorded 1971) captures the first-period hysteria that surrounded (and engulfed her). All show the various stages of her career nicely and all are worth having.

But if you have to have only ONE live Laura, this is it. The band rocks,
Laura never sounded better and more vibrant and the recording quality is great.

This was a one-off project for the small Cypress label in between her main Columbia commitments. It is now out of print.

Will somebody PLEASE re-release this gem?

"Reissue this CD NOW. I do not understand what the hold-up is to reissuing this great music by one of the premiere songwriters of the 1960's. The performance by Laura on this recording IS her legacy. It is Laura at her best. There are tons of people out there who want to own a copy of this CD. They want to remember Laura as she was, singing and playing her heart out, and this CD fills that need. Laura would have wanted this. The delay must end NOW. Reissue this CD NOW!"
