9780312303181: Soul Picnic: The Music and Passion of Laura Nyro

Laura Nyro was a beloved and pioneering singer-songwriter of the 1960s and 1970s, whose songs were covered with great success by the Fifth Dimension; Blood, Sweat & Tears; Three Dog Night; and Barbra Streisand. This first biography uncovers previously never revealed details, including a love affair with Jackson Browne, and her relationship with painter Maria Desiderio.

Unappreciated in her time, Nyro's legacy is currently experiencing a revival. With her groundbreakingly honest and passionate lyrics, her unusual and innovative rhythms and melody, Nyro's influence is still felt by singers and songwriters today.

From the Author:

If you appreciate the music of the late 60s/early 70s, if you remember the songs the late great Laura Nyro wrote and others performed ("Stoned Soul Picnic," "Wedding Bell Blues," "Eli's Comin'," "Stoney End," "And When I Die," "Sweet Blindness," "Save the Country," "Time and Love" ...), and, most of all, if you love the way Nyro sang those songs, I think you'll enjoy this first-ever biography of the singer-songwriter. I spoke to over 100 people who knew and worked with Nyro over her 30-year music career, including her former manager David Geffen, Patti LaBelle (her backup singer, along with the group Labelle, on the "Gonna Take A Miracle" album), all her producers (such as the Rascals' Felix Cavaliere), and her family and close friends. Plus, I gathered some great photos of her, from childhood on, including images with her family, her loves, and her musical colleagues. SOUL PICNIC is both a labor of love and a serious consideration of Nyro's music, career, and life, illuminating her roots as an artist while honoring her personal mystique.
