Best known for her 1979 top 10 Billboard pop hit cover of Neil Young's "Lotta Love," Larson died in 1997 at the age of 45 after suffering a cerebral edema.
The event featured performances from Dan Fogelberg, Joe Walsh, Jackson Browne, Emmylou Harris, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Jimmy Buffet, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt and Little Feat with Bonnie Raitt, a number of whom Larson recorded with in her lifetime.
The entire ensemble performed "Lotta Love" as well as a rendition of King's classic "You've Got a Friend," which closes out the set. Proceeds from the disc will benefit the Nicolette Larson Pediatric Endowment Fund at UCLA's Mattel Childrens' Hospital, as did the original shows.
