Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 463/500!1968's, Eli and the Thirteenth Confession is the second album by singer, songwriter, and pianist Laura Nyro.
Just shy of 21, Laura Nyro - drawing on the many-splendored influences of pop, rock, R&B, jazz, gospel and even Broadway - created a masterpiece that sealed her place in the pantheon of songwriting greats. While others may have topped the charts with classics like "Stoned Soul Picnic," "Eli's Comn'" and "Sweet Blindness," Laura's soulful and personal interpretations remain indelible and definitive. With a youthful spirit, a wisdom far belying her years, and a passion and persuasion that are timeless, Nyro delivers an inspiring confessional for the ages on this landmark recording.
