Nicolette was the “It” girl in 1979.  Rolling Stone had declared it in 1978.  nicolette_larson_ticket“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”,
