Heralded by the All Music Guide as one of pop music's true originals and a brilliant and innovative composer, singer/songwriter Laura Nyro has a large and loyal following, more than three decades after her first official retirement from the music industry, and years after her tragic and untimely death from ovarian cancer in 1997 at the age of 49. New from Cherry Lane Music, Laura Nyro: Lyrics & Reminiscences assembles for the first time ever in print the complete lyrics of more than 100 songs from this late folksinger and poet. The book contains several pages of Laura's handwritten lyrics, along with words to some of her songs that were never recorded. Also includes many of Nyro's drawings and paintings, plus extensive interviews with musicians and friends who worked with her. As a special bonus, this collector's pack also includes a CD featuring an interview with Laura recorded shortly before her death. In it, she discusses her creative process, inspirations, and approach to songwriting in general. The CD also includes tracks from Laura's original audition tape. With this book/CD pack, fans will have a unique glimpse into the craft of this gifted and beloved musician.
