From Karla Bonoff and 13 other releases
One of the finest writing and performance efforts from this underrated singer-songwriter, “Someone to Lay Down Beside Me” was released both on Karla Bonoff’s 1977 self-titled debut (produced by sometime collaborator Kenny Edwards) and also on Linda Ronstadt’s 1976 “Hasten Down the Wind”, with Karla featured on backup vocals. The song is a piano-driven song that is memorable both for the strong lyric hauntingly delivered by Ms. Bonoff and her rhythmic piano riff. Although Linda’s lovely version was a staple of FM rock radio in the late 70’s, it is Karla’s version that resonates as time passes. An equally-strong updated version is now available on the recent “Karla Bonoff Live” album.
