2. Yes, loved that version but did you know that she wrote that song?

 

Nero is the least accredited, genius, song writer ...

Between 1968 and 1970, a number of artists had hits with her songs: The 5th Dimension with "Blowing Away", "Wedding Bell Blues", "Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sweet Blindness", and "Save the Country"; Blood, Sweat & Tears and Peter, Paul and Mary, with "And When I Die"; Three Dog Night and Maynard Ferguson, with "Eli's Comin'"; and Barbra Streisand with "Stoney End", "Time and Love", and "Hands off the Man (Flim Flam Man)". Nyro's best-selling single was her recording of Carole King's and Gerry Goffin's "Up on the Roof".[2]

In 2010, Laura Nyro was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2012, Nyro was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.[4][5]

3. Yes Ma'am, they sure did.

Boy, does that brings back memories ... that, and they did that spinning wheel song too (I think).

Because what goes up, must come down...

12. I liked them both at first but

after a few years Chicago was really tearing it up. In the music circles I was involved with at the time though that BS&T were "too commercial"... we weren't fond of the Monkees and other Teevee connected artists. It was a thing back then. Many were immersed in Tom Rush, Joni Mitchell, the Taylor brothers and Carole king along with the Dead and Jimi Hendrix, Cream John Mayall, Buddy Guy and Bonnie Raitt. It was quite eclectic, within 50 miles of Boston, so there was a lot to choose from as we rejected Patsy Cline, Kitty Wells and George Jones that dominated radio waves outside the cities.

Now I look at many of those artists with a different perspective, of course, and really enjoy a lot of them. I do a pretty good Patsy Cline cover when in the right company. But I'd take on a BS&T or Chicago cover anytime too.

4. "Eli and the Thirteenth Confession' was a great album. She died too young.

13. I agree...

she was something of the original liberator of sorts. Very talented and gone too soon.

14. We used to play the hell out her album back then.

Phoebe Snow came a little later and reminded me of her.

15. one of my favorite artists

2 days after the 2016 election, this came on my pandora and I was finally able to cry:



"And when I die" has been on my funeral playlist forever.
