- NEIL YOUNG: MIRROR BALL: 1995: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Neil with Pearl Jam. Neil wrote all the songs except for one collaboration with Eddie Vedder. Another good 90’s album from Neil- and Pearl Jam adds a lot as the back up band. The album got mixed reviews. Downtown, Peace and Love, Scenery, I’m The Ocean are favorites.
- LAURA NYRO: NEW YORK TENDABERRY: 1969: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: Nyro’s third album in three years- influenced by New York City- a darker album than the previous album- Eli and The Thirteenth Confession. Save The Country was later a hit by The Fifth Dimension. I like the Eli album a little more-with its more recognizable songs- but early on in her career Nyro was on a roll. Every time I play Laura Nyro my wife has a negative reaction- I think its her voice-which I quite like.
