I was truly pleased to see Laura Nyro‘s name among the 2012 inductees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. That honor has been long overdue. I wrote a blog post earlier this year about Laura Nyro. I mentioned in that post that Earthworks Films, Inc. is working on a film about Laura Nyro entitled, December’s Boudoir. It would be terrific and well-timed if that movie was ready to be released in harmony with Laura Nyro’s induction. I’d love to see some of the footage shown as part of her induction. Keeping my fingers crossed about that possibility 🙂
The induction ceremony moves to Cleveland, Ohio and will be held on April 14, 2012. It will be the culmination of a 10 day celebration starting April 5th. There will be more details of that celebration posted on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Web site going forward. I see lots of advantages moving the induction ceremony from the Waldorf Astoria in New York City to Cleveland. One can only hope that for the 10 day celebration the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame plans to use the Web more actively with live Webcasts, video of recorded events and Web page information about each day of Induction 2012. It would be wonderful to include a wider, interested audience in this celebration.
Thank God for Spotify’s extensive music cloud which offers a comprehensive choice of Laura Nyro’s catalog. Christmas and the beads of sweat is an ideal listen as we enter the twelve remaining days of Christmas 2011.
