Yep! Laura was one in a million. Italian & Jewish from NYC. She inspired many future performers. Joni Mitchell for one but she doesn't have this soul. Many groups recorded her music. Her official website is: http://www.lauranyro.com They are preparing a film about her. Check it out. Laura we'll all see you at the river's end.

This is fantastic! What a voice! Seeing her sing live like this is a dream come true after years of listening to her albums and being intrigued by her. She was so original and absolutely unique. No one sounds like this even now. She was beyond talented in my opinion. She had something other-wordly you cannot define or attempt to describe. You just watch and hear and wonder where she came from! Thank you for posting.

This was the concert that apparently upset Laura Nyro as she thought she was being booed.
You can hear the cries of 'beautiful'!
Did she mishear? She was always not of her time tho' - still sounds unusual and different even today. All the rest of the acts sound so dated now but this is timeless.
