Lotta Love – Nicolette Larson (1978)
This American vocalist made an impressive solo debut with this track, written by Neil Young. But she wasn’t able to land another sizable hit until she switched to country music in the mid-80’s. That success was fleeting, too, but Larson was a prolific guest and back-up vocalist with some of the biggest music acts of the time (including Young). She released her last album, a collection of children’s songs, in 1994. Larson died in 1997 of liver failure caused by her chronic use of painkillers. She was 45 years old.
