Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel includes: Laura Nyro (vocals, piano); Roland Chambers, Norman Harris (guitar); Lenny Pakula (organ); Ronnie Baker (bass); Jim Helmer (drums); Larry Washington, Nydia Mata (bongos, congas).
  • LaBelle: Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendryx, Sarah Dash (vocals).
  • Recorded in 1971. Bonus tracks recorded live at Fillmore East, New York, New York on May 30, 1971. Includes liner notes by Amy Linden.
  • All tracks have been digitally remastered.
  • For Nyro, a native New Yorker who grew up on the sounds of girl groups and R&B, GONNA TAKE A MIRACLE was a return to her roots. While she made her name as a visionary songwriter on a par with Joni Mitchell or Neil Young, she was also a gifted interpreter of other people's songs. This is where she proved it, covering classic pop and R&B tunes like "Nowhere To Run," "Spanish Harlem" and "You've Really Got a Hold On Me." As she paid tribute to her influences, she was aided by the soulful backing vocals of LaBelle and the production of Philly soul masterminds Gamble and Huff.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (1/20/72, p.49) - "...She touches on quite a divergent span while remaining faithful to a single, very individual vision...GONNA TAKE A MIRACLE succeeds..." -Lenny Kaye

Q (10/02, p.131) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Has Nyro letting her hair down on such street corner teen anthems as 'Jimmy Mack' and 'Spanish Harlem'. Always a woman apart."
