Nona HendryxHeat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... $13.99
Nona's last album for RCA – and it's an edgy mid 80s dancefloor soul stormer that really helps solidify just how fearlessly creative Nona was in her solo years – as if we needed to be reminded! Nona's powerful, not-to-be-messed with vocals have the greatest presence of any element – and the production is heavy with terse synths, RX-11 drum programming, fuzzy guitars, sax, trumpet and a great crew of backing vocalists (which includes Fonzi Thornton). You can read that and think of myriad mid 80s albums with similar elements, but there's a hip, arty edge to Nona's work that is really something else. Don't sleep on this one! Includes "Revolutionary Dance", "A Girl Like That', "The Heat" (Part I & Part II), "I Need Love", "If Looks Could Kill (DOA)", "Rock This House" and "Time". This FTG version has 3 bonus tracks: "I Need Love (Extended Version)", "If Looks Could Kill (DOA) (Killer Club Mix)" and "Moving Violations 12" Version)". CD

Patti LaBelle & The BluebellesComplete Atlantic Sides Plus (Over The Rainbow/Dreamer/Saturday Night At The Uptown/singles) ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Mid 60s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $28.99 29.98
The complete Atlantic Records material from Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles – a group who'd recorded for other labels before these sides, but who really hit their stride with Atlantic! The collection brings together live tracks, two full albums, singles, and even some unreleased tracks as well – all very early work by Patti LaBelle – working here with the young Bluebelles group, but in a setting that still points the way towards the Labelle sound of the 70s – given that the quartet also features vocals from Cindy Birdsong, Sarah Dash, and Nona Hendryx! The style is a great mix of female doo wop and uptown soul – harmony styles really maturing strongly for the 60s, and already taking strong advantage of the amazing vocals of Patti LaBelle, but also really using the other singers too – at a level that clearly draws a lot from female groups in gospel, and which is very different than the usual girl group soul sound. Things are sweet, but have a nice edge too – and even the familiar tunes take on a new life in the hands of the group – amidst studio work from a range of great talents like Bert Berns, Dan Penn, Don Davis, Jerry Wexler, and Swamp Dogg too. 2CD set features 40 titles – including "He", "Patti's Prayer", "Groovy Kind Of Love", "One Phone Call", "Forget It", "Count The Days", "Dreamer", "Tender Words", "Always Something There To Remind Me", "He's Gone", "Pride's No Match For Love", "Dance To The Rhythm Of Love", "People", "Family Man", "When Joe Touches Me", and "Suffer".

LabellePressure Cookin' ... CD
RCA/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1973. New Copy ... Around August 20, 2014
An earlier and relatively underappreciated classic from LaBelle – with both high energy funk and laidback spacey soul touches – a great album somehow left behind in the digital era until this CD! The group had hit their stride by this point, even if the Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle alliance was a bit more of a wild card than on more predictable efforts, reaching for a number of styles while searching for a way to make the transition from their earlier career as a simple soul girl group. The exploration pays off, as there's a number of good funky numbers on the album – and some righteous political lyricism in the mix, too! The even riff on a version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", as led into byt the cutf "Something In The Air" – and other numbers include "Sunshine (Woke Me Up This Morning)", "Mr. Music Man", "Goin' On a Holiday", "Open Up Your Heart", "Let Me See You In The Light" and "Can I Speak to You Before You Go to Hollywood?".

New LabelleNightbirds ... LP
Epic, 1974. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A 70s crossover classic, and the album the put LaBelle over the top! The mighty Allen Toussaint is at the helm for this first Epic album to feature the trio of Patti LaBelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash – and he really helps the group find an amazing new sound after their somewhat rougher, rootsier efforts for Warner Brothers! The new groove has plenty of Toussaint's New Orleans rhythms in the mix – but the overall sound is a bit smoother too – kind of a classy, clubby take on the Crescent City sound – one that still sounds wonderful after all these years. Most tunes have a vamping rhythm and lots of great electric piano – and titles include the massive hit "Lady Marmalade", the great title track "Nightbirds" – and "Space Children", "All Girl Band", "You Turn Me On", "What Can I Do For You?", and "It Took A Long Time".

New Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1983. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
David Byrne brings his love of funk and soul to the forefront – tightening things up a bit from before, but still staying strongly in a classic Talking Heads groove! The record's possibly the last of the group's initial classic run, and has a surprisingly soulful feel at times – a hybrid of early 80s funk and club modes, played by guests who include Wally Badarou on synth, Bernie Worrell on keyboards, and Steve Scales and David Van Tieghem on percussion. Nona Hendryx sings a bit of backing vocals too – and Byrne really steps up to the grooves without ever going too far over the top. Titles include "Burning Down The House", "Making Flippy Floppy", "Girlfriend Is Better", "Slippery People", "I Get Wild/Wild Gravity", "Swamp", "Moon Rocks", "Pull Up The Roots", and "This Must Be The Place (Naïve Melody)".
