She's not at all well-known in Britain. Even people who call themselves fairly serious music fans haven't heard of her. The Fifth Dimension, who popularised several of her songs, had no profile whatsoever in Britain, but were successful for many years in America. But people who buy records don't always look at the name of the songwriter (as Jimmy Webb will tell you). So: is Laura Nyro a household name across the Atlantic? Or is she just another cult artist?
