Product Notes

UK collection of tracks written by the late, great singer/songwriter. A distinctive musician, an uncompromising vocalist and a great writer whose songs sold millions, but whose records did not, Nyro the performer was possibly too "out there" for mass consumption. Her lyrics were often obscure, but her glorious melodies meant that, in more mainstream interpretation, other artists enjoyed massive commercial success with her material. The performers contained on our collection reflect Nyro's devoted fan base, which pretty much consists of women and gay men, and are drawn from the worlds of Soul, Pop, Jazz and beyond. Highlights include 'Sweet Blindness' by the 5th Dimension, 'Save the Country' by Thelma Houston, 'Wedding Bell Blues' by Bobbie Gentry and new-to-CD rarities by Melba Moore, the Blossoms and Peggy Lipton.
