✨✧ LabelleLabelle – The Anthology ... CD (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2 CDs ... $15.99
A wonderfully-done look at the legendary soul trio Labelle – plus solo work as well! The collection doesn't feature the full range of Labelle's music – you might need a box set for that – but it does pick up the group when they really hit their stride on RCA in the early 70s – when the trio of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash were serving up a completely righteous blend of funk and soul! Gone are the more fragile harmonies of their 60s work – and in their place is a confident, badass approach that really let the vocals of the three women soar in a wonderful way. The set features ten tracks from these years – a good number of which were produced by Allen Toussaint – plus 26 more from the solo albums by the group members from the same time. Labelle titles include "Nightbird", "Lady Marmalade", "Are You Lonely", "What Can I Do For You (single)", "Isn't It A Shame", "Who's Watching The Watcher", "Messin With My Mind (single)", and "Something In The Air/The Revolution Will Not Be Televised". Sarah Dash sings "Sinner Man", "Leaving Again", "Oo La La too Soon", "Candy From Your Baby", and "I Can't Believe". Nona Hendryx sings "Casanova", "King Of Hearts", "You're The Only One I Ever Needed", "B-Boys (single)", "To The Bone", "I Sweat (single)", "Keep It Confidential (single)", and "Transformation (single)". Patti Labelle sings "Music Is My Way Of Life", "Teach Me Tonight", "Joy To Have Your Love (single)", "Love & Learn", "My Best Was Good Enough", "Release", "It's Alright With Me (single)", "Little Girls (single)", and "I Don't Go Shopping".

LabelleNightbirds ... CD
Epic (Japan), 1974. New Copy ... About March 20, 2018
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".

MaterialOne Down ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Near Mint- ... $5.99
One of the bigger efforts from Material – featuring the core trio of Bill Laswell, Martin Bisi, and Michael Beinhorn – plus guest work by Nona Hendryx, Nile Rodgers, Whitney Houston, Archie Shepp, Oliver Lake, and Fred Frith. The mix of jazz and soul talents comes together more nicely than you might think, thanks to Laswell's talents for crossing cultures – and although a few numbers here sound quite dated, overall the album's worth digging out at least for a document of a unique moment. Titles include "Take A Chance", "Memories", "Don't Lose Control", "Let Me Have It All", "Time Out", "Come Down", and "I'm The One'. LP, Vinyl record album

Soul ClapSoul Clap ... CD
Crew Love, 2016. New Copy ... $9.99 14.99
The Soul Clap duo have a huge amount of help on this full length set – a range of guests that runs from Nona Hendryx, through Ebony Houston, Nick Monaco, Hazmat Talkbox, Dayonne Rollins, Billy Bass Nelson, and others – all of whom help shape the sound nicely over the electro funk elements at the core! These guys are big on 80s-styled bass pedal bits and keyboard lines, but also work their music past any sort of simple retro mode – expanding the sound with some more thoughtful spacey moments, and finding fresh ways to come up with a soulful hook, instead of a cliche. Titles include "Numb", "Synthesizer Girlfriend", "Shine", "Future 4 Love", "Dirty Leslie", and "Timespent". CD

Talking HeadsSpeaking In Tongues (clear vinyl pressing) ... LP
Sire, 1983. Very Good+ ... $39.99
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)". This special edition features artwork by Robert Rauschenberg. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Patti LaBelle & The BluebellesComplete Atlantic Sides Plus (Over The Rainbow/Dreamer/Saturday Night At The Uptown/singles) ... CD
Atlantic/Real Gone, Mid 60s. Used 2 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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".

✨✧ LabelleChameleon ... LP
Epic, 1976. Used ... Temporarily 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
(Includes the printed inner sleeve. Cover has a cut corner.)

✨✧ Mother's FinestLove Changes – The Anthology 1972 to 1983 ... CD (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic collection of work from Mother's Finest – one of the more unique groups of the 70s, and one of the few who could equally balance sounds from soul, funk, and rock in their music! There's always lots of heavy guitar on the Mother's Finest grooves – and singer Joyce Washington has a sound that puts her right up there with Nona Hendryx for sheer, raw power alongside a fuzzy guitar solo – a mode that works especially well on the funky tracks, of which there are many on the set! The package brings together lots of unusual bits, plus album tracks – and even includes some of the group's rare early material for RCA, not originally issued in the 70s. 37 tracks in all – with titles that include "Bone Song", "Living Hero", "You Move Me", "Monster People", "Hard Rock Lover", "Big Shot Romeo", "Mickey's Monkey", "Baby Love", "Give You All The Love", "Rain", "Dontcha Wanna Love Me", "Run Joe", "Funky Mountain", "Love Changes", "Secret Service", "U Turn Me On", "Watch My Stylin", and "Can't Fight The Feelin".
