13.When I Was a Freeport and You Were the Main Drag
Personnel: Laura Nyro (vocals, guitar, piano); John Tropea (guitar); Jeannie Fienberg (flute); Jeff King (saxophone); Ellen Sealing (trumpet); Michael Mainieri (vibraphone); Andy Newmark (drums); Nydia Mata (conga drum).
Recording information: Carnegie Hall, NY (03/31/1976).
This set is drawn from a concert that Laura Nyro did at Carnegie Hall in 1976 with a tight band of John Tropea (guitar), Richard Davis (bass), Andy Newmark (drums), Michael Mainieri (vibes), Nydia Mata (congas), Jeff King (sax), Jeannie Fienberg (flute), and Ellen Sealing (trumpet) behind her. The concert was recorded for radio broadcast, so the sound is top-notch for a live performance. ~ Steve Leggett
