Laura Nyro: Five Years of Silence
Lita Eliscu, Phonograph Record, January 1976
BORN LAURA Nigro, she was fated to sing the blues. Though her solitary visions weren't attuned to the pop pulse of the movement-minded sixties, she succeeded by winning the souls of many for whom the mass idealism was irrelevant or scarifying.
[She was Clive Davis' favorite during his prime CBS years: "pure, art."]
