I played Laura's albums constantly way back
in the late '60s. I think I had most of
them that she made at that time.
She left us way too soon.
The following comments were left on the
YouTube page and I thought that
they are an interesting bit of
information about Laura
and this song.
Laura refers to her younger self as Emmie, and her "mama" would have, indeed, been her mother, my Aunt Gilda, a wonderful, protective lady who doted on and guarded Laura, and with whom Laura was extremely close. This was my Aunt Gilda's favorite song of Laura's.
