Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

After working as a backup vocalist for several country-rock acts and serving as a member of Commander Cody's Lost Planet Airmen for several years during the mid-'70s, vocalist Nicolette Larson launched a solo career in the late '70s. Initially, Larson followed the sound of laid-back Californian country-rock, which resulted in a Top Ten pop ... Read more in Amazon's Nicolette Larson Store

Editorial Reviews

Listeners familiar with Nicolette Larson's early work as a vocalist with Commander Cody will know right away that this project comes from her smoother-edged solo career. She scored big-easy rock hits, after all, a cynic might add, so it makes sense that her first release of the 1990s (nine years separate this recording and its predecessor, Say When) would be softened by keyboard washes and muted rhythms. But there's a simple reason for this CD's quietude, its floating gentleness: Larson writes in the liner notes that she wrote the songs as she sat by her daughter Elsie May's hospital bed as her daughter recovered. The music had to be all gentle and nonintrusive, and that's how it comes across. This is a great disc to spin as you rock the newborn. Larson's voice peeks out exceptionally as she covers an unreleased Neil Young tune ("Barefoot Floors") and presents a tender reading of "I Bid You Goodnight." Persistently fine layers of accordion and bowed cello give the keyboard-laden environments surprising warmth. --Andrew Bartlett

5.0 out of 5 stars Nicolette Larson's "Sleep, Baby, Sleep" March 18, 2000
By Heidi S
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have for any expectant or new mom! My husband bought this for me when I was pregnant with our third daughter and I listened to it everyday before she was born. When we went to the hospital, I took the tape and a small tape player with me. The gentle and heartwarming melodies instantly soothed my newborn and lulled her to sleep. Many nights, we would both fall asleep on the couch, listening to all of those wonderful lullabies. It is truly the best tape I have ever owned. Now that my "newborn" is two years old, she still asks to listen to "Welca world" ("Welcome to the world") and we absolutely love it. We will never get tired of listening to it. My personal favorites are "Irish Lullably", "Appalachian Lullably", and I dare anyone to listen to "The Moment I Saw You" without needing a tissue! I highly recommend this cd. It is the perfect babyshower gift.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magical! A must for all young families July 9, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Magical indeed. Just after our little girl joined us this album made me cry tears of joy with the simple expressions a Mother (and daddy too) feels for her baby. It immediately became our evening feeding-time music.
Now it is part of our bedtime routine for our 1-month old. Daddy gently dances through the first few tunes which includes our baby, Erika's, favorite "Starlight, Starbright" (she really responds to that tune! or is it Daddy's dancing footwork?) Daddy then hands a happy relaxed baby to me for her late dinner and some cuddling. By the last song Erika is full, happy and asleep, Mom is relaxed and content and Daddy is a happy man too.
Another part of the magic from this CD is how it reminds Moms and Dads how special their baby is and how wonderful is the moment they are sharing with the baby. Very therapuetic for the parents, especially after a long day with a baby!
My favorite song is the Irish Lullabye but I love them all. Daddy's favorite is "The Moment I saw you" and the early "danceable" tunes. The whole CD is truly a gem! We look forward to this being a favorite for many years to come.
This is a must have for all young families!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best lullaby CD out there! August 8, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I've sung the lullabies from this beautiful CD for going on 6 years now! I received it as a gift when my first child was born, and, although I have several lullaby CD's, this is without question the favorite of both my kids. My 6 year old, while well past the rocking to sleep stage, still requests certain of these songs. And, his little sister WILL NOT nap without at least 3 or 4 of Ms. Larson's fabulous songs first. If you buy only 1 CD to play to soothe and calm your child, make it this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buying It For a Second Time! August 12, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I bought the cassette to prepare for the birth of my daughter, Abby, almost 7 years ago. It helped me relax during those last, difficult nights before she arrived - it really touched me as a parent. She came early. She was not perfect, not healthy, but she was strong. Abby had a rare kidney disease... I played this recording for her CONSTANTLY during her 10 weeks in the NICU at UCLA. She was on a breathing tube 8 of those ten weeks, and it was often difficult for us to hold her, but I would always play this music and it would soothe her. I've found its power to be almost magical! These melodies also helped see us through some very difficult nights once we got home, and through many subsequent hospitalizations (ultimately a kidney transplant:). The voice, the melodies, and the soft - very natural- instrumentation make this an exceptional CD. I've bought this CD for many friends, and now I'm buying it again for my son. May its magic continue!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect bedtime music for parent and baby May 5, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought several lullaby CD's when my daughter was born in February, but this is the one in the CD player every night. Listening to this CD while nursing at bedtime has become part of our bedtime ritual, and it puts us BOTH to sleep! The songs are very soothing, with wonderfully sweet lyrics that are easy to sing to your baby. When we're having trouble settling our baby, I put this music on, and it almost always does the trick.
A previous reviewer complained that some of the songs had a religious overtone, and I just wanted to clarify, that while this is true (and something that I like about it), that it is not specific to any particular religion. (Examples: "Your Father above cradles you in his love", "I love you, but God loves you the best").
This CD is sure to become my new favorite gift for expecting parents.

5.0 out of 5 stars We LOVE this! Have Listened for 2 years... July 24, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
We received this for a gift when my son was born in early 1998. We had been trying to have a child for 10 years and had almost given up hope.... These songs made me cry the first several times I heard them. I see that a couple of reviewers didn't like the FEW times that God was mentioned. I really liked that part! When you become a parent -- you better understand your connection to God and how he must also feel about us! I frankly believe that if God (or whatever you choose to call him) were in our lives more -- we would be in a lot better shape as a people!
My son asks for it now that he's 2-1/2 and sings some of the songs. This CD is really well worth the $ spent!
