Laura Nyro, live at The Bottom Line, New York on 12th July 1978

Laura Nyro's classic Nested album was released in June 1978. Although she was heavily pregnant, she played promotional club dates in several US cities, the most eagerly anticipated of which were in her native New York in July.

Accompanying herself on piano, she treated the audience to a selection of songs from her new album, as well as older classics and a sensuous take on Dr. John's Mama Roux. Melodic, soulful and deeply personal, the set was originally broadcast on KBFH-FM and is one of the best surviving artefacts of Nyro live.

It's presented here with background notes and images.
