Wrote this when she was sixteen. Amazing first album-but not my favourite, which would be New York Tendaberry.   1

Laura's voice sends a chill up my spine! Why wasn't she a big star in her era? So many songs that were hits for others, her talent was cut short much too early due to cancer.   1

Having just rediscovered Ms. Nyro after many years of dormancy is quite nice, indeed.

Barbra Streisand's cover of this song is a bouncy belter and incredible, but this original version is just astounding. When Laura Nyro sings it, it's one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. But in a good way. #LauraNyro
