All of the music recordings on this site are recordings of independent origin (ROIOs) Music that has not been officially released. If you are an artist or a legal representative of an artist and you do not want your ROIO shared on my site for free among your fans (and creating new fans), just tell me in the comment area and I will remove them. By the way these recordings exist. They won't go away. All of them can be found at various places on line. Sharing just keeps the fans that support the artists from having to get ripped off by purchasing them on auction sites, and it also introduces music to people who would never have known the artist, creating a stronger fan base.

Nicolette Larson, Yosemite, CA 8-29-86 (FM)

Someone requested I repost this one.
Nicolette Larson had a big hit with Neil Young’s Lotta Love in 1987 and people might remember her backing Neil Young on Comes A Time and Harvest Moon. But she did not get a lot of attention after that. As she said in this recording, “I have a new album called Rose Of My Heart. I hate to plug it but nobody else will…”

Larson’s career was unfortunately cut short when she died in 1997 as a result of complications arising from cerebral edema. She did not leave behind a large body of work but this show is a good example of what was lost.

  1. Is there any chance you might re-up this one? Thanks, jimg

  2. What a wonderful voice. Thanks so much for this. I recall at a Bridge Concert within the last 10 years, Neil muttering, "This is for Nicolette" and then playing Lotta Love.
    I've been looking a long time for the Strawberry Old & in the Way show shortly after Jerry died with herb Pedersen in the line-up. It was a great day: ralph Stanley played, Peter Rowan did a solo set and the Austin City lounge Lizards were pretty awesome. Any of that day laying around in your voluminous vaults? Appreciate your sharing.
