Gonna Take A Miracle - Laura Nyro and Labelle

Gonna Take A Miracle
Released on 25/01/10. Our very favourite Laura Nyro album. But wait, you might say, our favourite album by a cult/hit songwriter of some renown is one composed entirely of covers! Why yes indeed...an album which has been described by Alan McGee as sounding "Like a prayer" is an album which can be looked at in so many different ways.... It can be seen as a prime example of the little known but big around these parts genre of "Girls together singing crazy" and by the way the witchiest record since "Iko Iko"... It can be seen as an exploration of Nyro's pop roots and a wistful look back at her love for early New York soul and Motown....and it can also be seen as a surprise collaboration with Labelle, caught between their 1960s Girl Group heyday and their soon-come hit-making odyssey into Sci-Fi soul/disco with Allan Toussaint...


"One of the great cover albums of all time, Nyro mining her youthful soul obsessions for songs such as Jimmy Mack and Spanish Harlem, all treated to her distinctive delivery over restrained Philly-soul production by Gamble & Huff.”
