Limited Edition Import Vinyl 8LP Box Set With Book!
One Time Pressing!
7 Breathtaking Albums From 1967-1978 Remastered For Vinyl!
Includes An Original LP Of Rarities & Live Recordings!

Limited eight vinyl LP box set housing seven of Laura's breathtaking original albums from 1967 - 1978, all remastered especially for these vinyl editions - More Than A New Discovery, Eli And The Thirteenth Confession, New York Tendaberry, Christmas And The Beads Of Sweat, Gonna Take A Miracle, Smile and Nested - alongside an original LP of Rarities And Live Recordings.

Housed in a stunning book-shelf slipcase box set that includes a 36-page 12" book with extensive liner notes from renowned author Peter Doggett, and features rare photographs, and interviews with Todd Rundgren, Charlie Callelo, Herb Bernstein and many more.

One of the more welcome surprises within the flood of recent vinyl reissues is this appropriately weighty box celebrating singer-songwriter Laura Nyro. Tucked into each limited set is remastered re-pressings of Nyro's first seven full-lengths and a collection of single tracks, demos and live material. Tracing her full story in this short amount of space is impossible, but in her late '60s and '70s heyday, Nyro was one of the most popular songwriters around, penning big hits for the Fifth Dimension and Blood Sweat & Tears. On her own albums, she went wherever the muse directed. On 1970's Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, Nyro recorded with both the Muscle Shoals Band and a jazz ensemble that included Alice Coltrane, and on Gonna Take A Miracle, she recorded a set of soul/R&B tunes with help from the vocal trio Labelle. The emotion and depth she could bring to a single lyric and to her dynamic vocal performance put her on the same ground as contemporaries like Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Yet, she's not often talked about in the same glowing regard as her fellow songwriters. The size of American Dreamer may be too daunting to serve as an immediate corrective to that oversight (especially as original copies of her work are easily found used) but if it's a full immersion you want, this is the way to go.
