“I idolized her. This is music so far ahead of its time that still sounds so unbelievable. The soul, the passion, just the out-and-out audacity of the way her rhythmic and melodic changes came, was like nothing I’d heard before.

On July 30th, Madfish Music celebrates the brilliance of singer-songwriter Laura Nyro with ‘American Dreamer’, a Limited Edition 8 LP vinyl Box Set featuring seven original studio albums from 1967 to 1978 and a bonus LP of rare demos & live recordings.
