Montana-born, honey-voiced singer Nicolette Larson headed west in 1974 and quickly became a member of the '70s California rock scene. She sang backup with Hoyt Axton and Commander Cody, did sessions with Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Neil Young, and landed a solo deal with Warner Bros., which, in late 1978, released her first single, "Lotta Love" (penned by her mentor Young). It went Top 10, spurred her debut album Nicolette to gold, and launched a promising career. She cut four albums for Warner Bros. and guested on records by others ranging from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band to Van Halen. In Nashville, Larson starred in the musical Pump Boys And Dinettes and cut the album Say When, proving she was adept at country too. Sadly, Nicolette passed away in December 1997 of complications arising from cerebral edema; she was just 45. Now Rhino is proud to bring you the only collection devoted to this underappreciated artist's best solo recordings, The Very Best Of Nicolette Larson.
The Northern California singer/songwriter/guitarist delivers one of his finest albums with "The World Over." Jeff Larson's earnest vocals and unwaveringly engaging folk-rock-country songs have an alluring, early Eagles feel. Appropriately, among those contributing stirring harmonies is Jeddrah Schmit, daughter of Eagles bassist Timothy B. Schmit. Also complementing Larson's voice are the duo of Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (America) and Jeffrey Foskett (Brian Wilson Band). Larson's warm, wonderful songs will grab you immediately and just get better with each subsequent listening. Every one of the 10 numbers here proves to be an individual gem…
Third in a series that began with Fragile Sunrise (2002) followed by Sepia (2004). Guests Gerry Beckley and Dewey Bunnell (America), Robert Lamm (Chicago), Jeffrey Foskett and Randell Kirsch. Produced by Hank Linderman. Sunny-breezy-roots-pop!
