I first got hooked by November 1971's It's Gonna Take A Miracle that she teamed with Labelle on and was produced in Philadelphia by Gamble & Huff. I was starting my senior year in high school in the Bronx, NY.
In 1993 Walk The Dog And Light The Light arrived with the studio version of �Broken Rainbow,� considered one of Laura�s most important songs of social protest. It was written for the film of the same name, which won the Academy Award� for Best Documentary of 1985. �Broken Rainbow� is about the unjust relocation of the Navajo people. This was Laura's 11th and last studio album and her first album in 9+ years - the 1994 tour was in support of it. She did some dates in Japan earlier in the year. I think she was basically doing weekends on this tour as she had a 15 year old son.
Laura left us a bit less than 3 years after this show, on April 8, 1997, from ovarian cancer. Allen Ginsberg, the American poet from the Beat generation, had died on April 3, 1997.
