Stoned Soul Picnic: The Best Of Laura Nyro
by Laura Nyro
Released: Feb 1997
Predating the sophisticated female songwriter/pianists of today (Norah Jones, Fiona Apple, etc), Nyro created a critically acclaimed body of work. "Wedding Bell Blues" is the one youre going to recognize but its just the start. If you need an introduction to Nyros unique singing style and super smart arrangements, this is a good one.
