Nicolette Larson - In The Nick Of Time (1979) - Lp

Nicolette Larson (July 17, 1952 – December 16, 1997) was an American pop singer.
She is perhaps best known for her work in the late 1970s with Neil Young and her 1978 hit single of Neil Young's "Lotta Love" which hit No. 1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart and No. 8 on the Pop Singles chart. It was followed by four more adult contemporary hits, two of which were also minor pop hits.
In the Nick of Time was the second album by Nicolette Larson. It features a duet with Michael McDonald, keyboards from Bill Payne, backing vocals from Bobby LaKind and Rosemary Butler, Ronnie Montrose on guitar and other collaborators. Larson had a minor hit with her McDonald duet, "Let Me Go, Love".

In the Nick of Time was much more highly polished than Nicolette Larson's first effort. Here, Nicolette Larson is backed up by a crack team of L.A. studio musicians, and the results are sort of mixed. True, she doesn't suffer from the dreaded sophomore jinx that plagues so many first hit artists, but In the Nick of Time doesn't have that wow-charm that Larson did. Her styles have broadened even more here to include '40s dance tunes alongside Motown sure-fire hits and '50s rockin'. While nothing here grabs the listener's attention, there is plenty of fine listening in store. Larson even co-wrote the title cut and was helped out by such stellar friends as Karla Bonoff and Michael McDonald, who duets with her on his own "Let Me Go, Love," which comes off as an almost too slick cut for the listener to grab hold of. Culled from the late '70s Hollywood slick machine, In the Nick of Time could use a little dirt to help make it all sound just a bit more real.

Larson died on December 16, 1997, in Los Angeles, California, as a result of complications arising from cerebral edema triggered by liver failure. According to Astrid Young, her friend and Neil Young's half sister, Larson had been showing symptoms of depression, and her fatal seizure "was in no small way related to her chronic use of Valium and Tylenol PM".
