2 April 2012 - Nicolette Larson - Lotta Love

Some people perform a song, and then they just own it, no matter who did it first.  This version of Lotta Love is one of them.

Few people realized that, when this song was released, it was a cover. Originally performed by Neil Young, this version is far more upbeat than the original.  The original recording of the song, from the Comes A Time album, an album that featured Ms. Larson as a background singer (this song did not).  However, Neil Young offered the song to her if she wanted it.

This recording is from Italian television in 1978.  Ms. Larson had several other hits on the country charts, but none as big as this one.  Sadly, she passed away in 1997 at age 45.
