Nicolette was the “It” girl in 1979. Rolling Stone had declared it in 1978. “Lotta Love” with Neil Young was in heavy rotation and Nicolette’s solo album”Nicolette” had just been released and captured her soulful spirit, her amazing voice and an array of back-up session musicians that are legendary: Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, Waddy Wachtel etc.
She was very petite, but when she closed the show that night, stage center with just the follow-spot igniting her, and sang J.D. Souther’s “Last In Love”,
man, all I can say is that she filled that sold out room with her voice. She moved me to tears. Beautiful.
