Album of the Day
In The Nick Of Time
After years as one of L.A.'s top session singers, Nicolette Larson scored a Top 10 hit with “Lotta Love,” and built on that success with her second album, IN THE NICK OF TIME. The 1979 Warner Bros. collection is a more polished affair than her debut, and applies Larson's appealing voice to a variety of material including the dancefloor-friendly "Dancin' Jones," the Latin-tinged "Rio De Janeiro Blue," a fine version of Karla Bonoff's "Isn't It Always Love" and a Top 40 duet with Michael McDonald, "Let Me Go, Love.” The Doobie Brother is not the only musical luminary heard in support; producer Ted Templeman also enlisted guest performances by Van Dyke Parks, guitarist Ronnie Montrose and a couple of Little Feat members. Nicolette's many friends paid tribute to the late singer in a star-studded concert 20 years ago today; we'll remember her now with IN THE NICK OF TIME.
