Nicolette is the debut album by Nicolette Larson, released in 1978 by Warner Bros. Records. It reached #15 on the US pop charts and #1 in Canada and was certified Gold in both markets.

Larson came to public attention singing backup for Neil Young on American Stars 'n Bars and Comes a Time. Her first charting single was Young's smoky composition "Lotta Love". As a single, it hit #1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, #8 on the Cash Box Top 100, and #8 in Record World magazine. The follow-up single, "Rhumba Girl," fell short of the US Top 40, but reached #15 in Canada and #4 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart.

Eddie Van Halen appears uncredited on guitar on "Can't Get Away From You".

The album was re-released on CD in 2005 on the Wounded Bird label.


Nicolette Larson (July 17, 1952 – December 16, 1997) was an American singer. She is perhaps best known for her work in the late 1970s with Neil Young and her 1978 hit single of Young's "Lotta Love", which hit No. 1 on the Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks chart and No. 8 on the pop singles chart. It was followed by four more adult contemporary hits, two of which were also minor pop hits.

By 1985, she shifted her focus to country music, charting six times on the US country singles chart. Her only top-40 country hit was "That's How You Know When Love's Right", a duet with Steve Wariner. She died in 1997 of cerebral edema and liver failure.
