Nicolette Larson

Really interesting.

 

From that Wiki link:

 


Like Maria Muldaur, Larson would be unable to consolidate the commercial success augured by her debut: the second single off Nicolette, "Rhumba Girl" just missed becoming a major hit for Larson at No. 48 and her second album In the Nick of Time released November 1979 failed to showcase Larson's voice attractively. Don Shewey in Rolling Stone opined:
 
Larson's rough-edged, down-home tone is definitely appealing – especially when she backs up the likes of Neil Young and Steve Goodman [whose High and Outside album featured a duet with Larson: "The One That Got Away"] – but as a soloist, her limited vocal resources are "severely taxed" – "It's symptomatic of Nicolette Larson's problems as a performer that the finest singing on In the Nick of Time is by Michael McDonald. 'Let Me Go, Love'...McDonald's entrancing vocal presence...so overshadows Larson's that she seems to be playing second fiddle rather than sharing the lead. Elsewhere, Larson is dwarfed by Ted Templeman's typically luxurious production".

 

And so here is 'Let Me Go, Love'

 

 

It's true, McDonald does overshadow her but then again Templeton could have lowered his volume in the mix. It was her album, not his.


Hey there goes Alex. He's loaded with money. Wow he's really set himself up great.

Haha. Get a famous guy to sing a line in the song.... (Btw, the singer could reform WHAM! with Andrew Ridgeley and people would think George Michael was still alive.)

 

Christopher Cross - Ride Like the wind

My appreciation of Michael McDonald’s voice has grown over the years. Dude was skillful. His last solo album is nothing short of incredible too.
