Nicolette Larson - In the Nick of Time

Nicolette Larson - In the Nick of Time.  This is her second album, it has much in common with Lauren Wood's eponymous album released the same year.  She does a nice duet with Michael McDonald, there are keyboard performances contributed from the great Bill Payne, some backing vocals from Bobby LaKind and Rosemary Butler, and even a Ronnie Montrose guitar solo!  Larson did have a minor hit with a Michael McDonald duet - called "Let Me Go, Love."  Nicolette does songs here that were written by some greats:  Like Leiber & Stoller (Dancin' Jones).  Lowell George (Trouble).  Holland, Dozier and Holland (Back in my Arms).   And Ted Templeman (Just in the Nick of Time.  But sadly - I just found out she passed away in 1997.   She is best known for her work in the late 1970s with Neil Young, as well as her 1978 cover of Young's "Lotta Love."  That is a great version of that song.  By 1985, she later shifted focus to country music, charting six times on the Hot Country Singles (now Hot Country Songs) charts.
