Song written by Laura Nyro which was originally released in January 1971 and backed with “Been on a Train”. It appeared on Laura Nyro’s Christmas and the Beads of Sweat, co-produced by Rascals’ front man Felix Cavaliere, in 1970. It has since been included on Season of Lights, Laura Nyro in Concert, Stoned Soul Picnic: The Best of Laura Nyro, and Time and Love: The Essential Masters.
The Dee Rossello version on White Dove curiously curtails the title, erasing the “When” and dividing ” Freeport” into two words.
