More Than a New Discovery is the debut album by Bronx-born singer, songwriter, and pianist Laura Nyro. It was recorded during 1966 and released at the beginning of the following year on the Verve Folkways imprint of the Verve Records label.
The name of the label was later changed to Verve Forecast and the album was re-issued on that label as The First Songs in 1969. This re-issue has a different track order and revised cover design. This release peaked at #97 on the Billboard 200, then known as the Pop Albums chart. On this version the song "Hands Off the Man" was retitled "Flim Flam Man".
Columbia Records re-issued The First Songs with all-new cover art (featuring a rose illustration) in 1973. In 2008, Rev-Ola released a remastered version of the original album on CD in the original running order with original cover art.
The album included several songs that would become hits for other artists. Blood, Sweat & Tears scored with "And When I Die" (US #2), The 5th Dimension with "Wedding Bell Blues" (US #1) and "Blowin' Away" (US #21), and Barbra Streisand with "Stoney End" (US #6).
In 1999, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.
