A double-CD, career-spanning retrospective that offers little in the way of surprises: it's a tastefully selected overview of her career highlights, heaviest (and justifiably so) on her late-'60s albums. There's the inevitable feeling of letdown as disc two progresses; her post-early-'70s material is far less interesting than her earliest work, even if it's inoffensive. All of the first five albums (through 1971's Gonna Take a Miracle) are now on CD, so this is most suitable for the fan who isn't passionate enough to be a completist. Includes a couple of previously unreleased live tracks from the '90s; the version of "Sweet Blindness," unfortunately, is not the original late-'60s recording, but is from a late-'70s live album. [Please note that this edition of Essential Laura Nyro includes the exact same track listing as the 1997 Columbia/Legacy release Stoned Soul Picnic: The Best of Laura Nyro.] ~ Richie Unterberger
