Nancy LaMott DVD - The Don't Tell Mama Shows, Four Complete Live Club Acts from 1986-1988
The four complete cabaret acts on this 2-DVD set, mark the height of Nancy LaMott's career at Don't Tell Mama, just before she made her first of a series of CDs that catapulted her into the public eye in a much bigger way. It was at these performances that it became obvious that Nancy was a major singing star who needed to be heard by the world at large.

With no bells and whistles, no fancy lighting, no big band, just a piano on a small stage, Nancy's extraordinary way with a song and her ability to move an audience to laughter, tears and everything in between shines through.

For those who remember those days, these performances are a nostalgic look back at a consummate artist and lovely human being in a sweeter, simpler time. For those who don't, these performances are a lesson in how it was done.

I'll Be Here With You - Nancy LaMott DVD
A Collection of Rare Live Performances 1978-1995
Nancy LaMott DVD - I'll Be Here With You, A Collection of rare live performances 1978-1995
The first ever DVD of Nancy. In this collection, we trace Nancy’s progress from a young woman enthusiastically belting out a Liza Minnelli tune in a small San Francisco club through some of her most memorable performances at Don't Tell Mama, and then watch as she develops into the poised and polished artist that a lucky few got to see at The Algonquin, at the Palace Theater and on National TV.

Her touching last television appearance and her triumphant first rendition of "Listen To My Heart" close the DVD. It’s taken years to compile and clear all these performances, but at last we have, on one DVD, a memory of what was and a hint at what might have been.

Ask Me Again - Nancy LaMott 2 CD Set
Nancy LaMott CD - Ask Me Again
After Nancy’s death in 1995, many radio DJs across the country kept her music alive by playing cuts from her CDs. But one DJ, Jonathan Schwartz, had access to a special private collection of unreleased recordings that Nancy had given him copies of as gifts. Over the years, Jonathan would regularly play these recordings, and every time he did we would get calls asking, "Which CD is that on? How do I get a copy of that song?" Of course, they weren't on any CD, so we had a lot of frustrated fans on our hands.

Several years ago we set out to rectify that problem by putting together this compilation. Because these songs were recorded in many disparate venues, most with just a live piano, on all different kinds of equipment of varying quality, live in concert, live on the radio, and in small studios in Atlantic City and New York, the challenge was to get them all to play evenly so they could be listened to on one CD without losing the dynamic range that was the trademark of Nancy's live performances. We are thrilled with the results.

In every case, we're bringing you the songs as they were originally sung. With the exception of raising and lowering volumes and a few small nips and tucks, all these performances are untouched. The result is an intimate, natural look at these songs just as Nancy sang them. No frills, no tricks, Just Nancy.

Nancy LaMott CD - Beautiful Baby
Nancy's first solo CD, "Beautiful Baby" is an exquisitely sung collection of songs for which Nancy had become well-known in cabarets in San Francisco, Provincetown, London and New York.

From Nancy's extraordinarily unique interpretation of the title song, "You Must Have Been a Beautiful Baby" to "Help is On The Way" which Nancy introduced on this CD and which became one of her signature songs, Nancy sings beloved classic and contemporary songs with simplicity, beauty and grace.

With Christopher Marlowe arranging and playing impeccably at the piano, this CD is where it all started. Nancy, pure and simple.

Come Rain or Come Shine - Nancy LaMott CD
Nancy LaMott CD - Come Rain or Come Shine
From the beginning of her career, Nancy's name became synonymous with the songs of Johnny Mercer. There are many singers who, when you hear them sing, you say "Wow, what a voice!" Nancy was a songwriter’s dream, because although she had one of the most beautiful and versatile voices around, when you heard her sing, more often than not you’d say, "Wow, what a song!"

On this CD, Nancy adds her unique spin to Johnny Mercer classics, and tosses in a few gems that, although perhaps a bit more obscure, are equally captivating. As only Nancy could, she infuses these great songs with new beauty and new meaning.

Just In Time For Christmas - Nancy LaMott CD
Nancy LaMott CD - Just In Time For Christmas
The title song, written especially for Nancy by David Zippel and David Friedman, marks this as a uniquely personal Christmas CD by a singer who knew how to make the personal universal.

In addition to containing numerous Christmas standards that we know and love, all with Nancy's unique spin, this CD contains many perhaps less-well-known songs which speak of our personal experiences of Christmas: what it's like to find love at Christmas, what it’s like to understand the meaning of Christmas beyond its purely religious implications.

A complete Nancy Christmas experience, this CD is a must to have in rotation not only at holiday time, but year-round.

Listen To My Heart
Nancy LaMott CD - Listen To My Heart
Nancy's crowning achievement, on this CD she decided to go for broke and hire the legendary arranger Peter Matz (who orchestrated and conducted most of Barbra Streisand's early CDs) to arrange and conduct a full orchestra for a CD that contained performances of songs for which she had become celebrated, but which had not yet been recorded.

The CD was originally to be titled "By Request" but when Jonathan Schwartz heard Nancy's spectacular rendition of "Listen to My Heart" he told her that that the title had to be "Listen To My Heart."

That song certainly became the song most associated with Nancy, and we’re all grateful that she was able to record this CD, filled with classic performances of standards and equally captivating performances of contemporary songs by composers and lyricists she loved, at the peak of her power as a singer, with the orchestrations that voice deserved, just 6 months before her untimely death.

What's Good About Goodbye?
Nancy LaMott CD - What's Good About Goodbye?
The first CD to be released after Nancy’s untimely death at the age of 43, this collection of songs is unique in that the songs were originally recorded by Nancy with just a piano, and Peter Matz came in later and added orchestrations to them.

The fascinating thing about these performances is that it’s clear that Nancy always heard and orchestra in her head, because it sounds like she was singing live with the orchestra, with as much power and commitment and beauty as it would take to sing over a full orchestra, even though she had been singing with just a piano.

Many of the songs of goodbye and loss on this CD take on a new meaning in light of Nancy’s passing, but there are also light-hearted and unique interpretations of classics and modern songs alike. A fitting remembrance for a singer who gave us so much joy and so much emotion.
