New Nona HendryxArt Of Defense ... LP
RCA, 1984. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Nona Hendryx at the height of her 80s glory – looking mighty fierce in a fencing costume on the cover! As with her previous set, this one's done with heavy help from Material – who bring in a beat heavy sound that's kind of a mainstream variation on the underground New York groove they'd had a few years before. Francois K helps a bit on the mixing, and you can definitely hear some of his playful touches – the sorts of sounds that helped a record like this build a bridge between the clubs and the streets, from Danceteria to the mainstream! Musicians include Bernie Worrell on keyboards and Bill Laswell on bass and tapes – and titles include "To The Bone", "Electricity", "I Sweat", "Soft Targets", "I Want You", "Ghost Love", and "The Life". LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout notch.)

New Nona HendryxHeat (with bonus tracks) ... CD
RCA/FTG, 1985. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

New Nona HendryxNona Hendryx ... LP
Epic, 1977. Used ... Out Of Stock
Post-Labelle solo work from Nona Hendryx – and a set that very much shows that she's the one who brought all the raw funky power to the group! Unlike Patti Labelle's work from the same time, which was getting smoother and classier, Nona's work here is almost in the vein of rock music – working the lead guitar hard in a style that's a bit Betty Davis, but more crossover too – in ways that helped Hendryx gain a huge audience for her groove in the 70s! The core group is super-tight, and also helps Nona with all the arrangements too – a nicely unified set that includes a version of Russ Ballard's "Winning", plus "Everybody Wants To Be Somebody", "Once Again", "Problem", "Will You Be There?", "Leaving Here Today", and "Take A Chance".

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 ... $13.99
An early classic from LaBelle – wonderful vocals mixed with both heavy funk and laidback spacey soul touches! The group had really hit their stride by this point – as the trio of Nona Hendryx/Sarah Dash/Patti Labelle push way past their girl group roots – and even some of the slightly less-formed modes of their Warner Brothers years – finding a really badass sort of territory that would serve them well for the rest of the 70s! The shift really pays off – as there's a number of good funky numbers on the album – and some righteous political lyricism in the mix, too – but also some mellower moments that really round things out nicely. The trio riff on a version of "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", as led into by the cut "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".

Patti Labelle & LabelleLady Marmalade – Best Of Patti & Labelle ... CD
Legacy/Epic, Mid 70s. Used ... $2.99
By the time of her big hit "Lady Marmalade" in the mid 70s, Patti Labelle – and group-mates Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash – had been knocking around for many years cutting records. Their style was always interesting – especially as Labelle moved from simple girl group material into some of their more righteous work of the early 70s. By the time they hit the Epic label, though, they emerged as a full-blown hit act – working with Allen Toussaint on some funky material, and watching Patti emerge as a strong solo act on her own. This set features 16 tracks that will give you a pretty good idea of what was going on at the time – including "Lady Marmalade", "You Turn Me On", "Quiet Time", "Messin With My Mind", "It's Alright With Me", "Get You Somebody New", and the great Latiny groover "Teach Me Tonight (Me Gusta Tu Baile)".

New Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good- ... $11.99
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 (Naive Melody)". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousDisco Discharge – Disco Ladies ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. Used 2CD ... $12.99
Disco Ladies, and some deeper soul too – a very cool collection of cuts that all feature female singers in the lead, supported by a great range of club sounds from the 70s and 80s! As with other entries in the Disco Discharge series, the grooves here really go past the obvious – and although you'll find some familiar names, most are represented by lesser-hits and hard to find cuts that make the package well worth tracking down for any club collector – especially as some of these grooves haven't been properly reissued on other sets over the years! There's a whopping 22 tracks in all – and titles include "Love At First Sight" by Kim Hart, "Groove Me" by Fern Kinney, "Give Me A Break" by The Ritchie Family, "I Like You (Shep Pettibone rmx)" by Phyllis Nelson, "Fly Too High" by Janis Ian, "Instant Love" by Sylvia Love, "Spacer" by Sheila B & Devotion, "Blood & Honey" by Amanda Lear, "Come On & Do It" by Poussez, "This Beat Is Mine" by Vicky D, "Keep It Confidential" by Nona Hendryx, "Get On Up & Do It Again" by Suzy Q, "Gotta Get Out Of Here" by Lucy Hawkins, "Jump To The Beat" by Stacy Lattisaw, "Shake It Up Tonight" by Cheryl Lynn, "Bring On The Love" by Gloria Jones, and "You Fooled Around" by Sister Sledge.

New LabelleChameleon ... LP
Epic, 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
A stone classic in the genre of bad-rapping female soul – and one of the key albums cut by the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash! The arrangements and production are handled by David Rubinson, who gives the set a nicely polished feel that gets a bit past some of the slight cliches that had been creeping into the girls work – a style that shows them equally well skilled at mellower numbers than at the funkier rockier tunes that were their more familiar stock in trade. Titles include "Come Into My Life", "A Man In A Trenchcoat (Voodoo)", "Get You Something New", "Going Down Makes Me Shiver", "Gypsy Moths", and "Who's Watching The Watcher?". LP, Vinyl record album
