Much more than a songbook, this collection is a glimpse into the psyche of late, great folk artist and songwriter Laura Nyro. It features an interview with Laura, excerpts from her personal music journals, creative notes, family photos and her own never-before-seen paintings, among other treasures. Includes P/V/G arrangements of 17 songs: And When I Die • Blackpatch • Captain Saint Lucifer • Eli's Comin' • Emmie • Save the Country • Stoned Soul Picnic • Stoney End • Sweet Blindness • Time and Love • To a Child • Wedding Bell Blues • and more. As an added bonus, the accompanying CD contains three previously unreleased Nyro tunes: “A Woman of the World” and “Dedicated to the One I Love” recorded live in Japan, plus a cover of Stevie Wonder's “Creepin'.”.
