YMMV: Laura Nyro
  • Covered Up: Lots of her songs were covered by (and became commercial hits for) other artists, including:
    • The Fifth Dimension ("Stoned Soul Picnic", "Sweet Blindness", "Wedding Bell Blues", "Blowing Away", "Save the Country")
    • Barbra Streisand ("Stoney End", "Time and Love", "Flim Flam Man")
    • Blood, Sweat & Tears ("And When I Die")
    • Three Dog Night ("Eli's Comin'")
  • Magnum Opus: For the majority, it's Eli and the Thirteenth Confession, though New York Tendaberry also receives a fair share of supporters.
  • Sampled Up: "Once It Was Alright Now (Farmer Joe)" was sampled for "Alright" by J Dilla and "Save The Country" was sampled for Kanye West's "The Glory". Also, "Sexy Mama" was sampled by Pizzicato Five.
  • She Changed It, Now It Sucks: Some people didn't like the Lighter and Softer and Green Aesop tones of Mother's Spiritual.
