From the Archives: Jenny Lewis interviewed for Songs To Learn And Sing in 2006 just before the release of her debut solo album Rabbit Fur Coat. Jenny was very easygoing and friendly. She chatted at length about songs from Rabbit Fur Coat, recording without her Rilo Kiley bandmates and why Laura Nyro's Gonna Take a Miracle is one of her favourite albums.

Gonna Take a Miracle, Laura Nyro's fifth album, was released in 1971. It's an album of covers on which, accompanied by the vocal trio Labelle, Nyro interprets a number of 50s and 60s soul and R&B standards. Jenny had fond memories of listening to the record as a kid with her mum.
