Laura: Live at the Bottom Line is the 2nd live album by New York City-born singer, songwriter, and pianist Laura Nyro and her tenth original album in total, including the 1977 live album Season of Lights.

Nyro's long-time label Columbia Records wanted a brand new studio album from Nyro, who had stayed with the label despite not having had a reasonable commercial success for well over a decade. Instead, she decided she wanted to go on the road and record a new live album.

Columbia did not approve, and a deal was negotiated allowing Nyro to release the live album on a different label, Cypress, before returning to Columbia for another studio album.

Live at the Bottom Line was recorded at New York's famous intimate venue, The Bottom Line, and mixes some of Nyro's famous compositions with newer ones and also previously unreleased songs.
