Album Review

While Patti LaBelle was the vocal force behind the group bearing her name, Nona Hendryx was providing the material that Patti would use to deliver her energetic sound. Of the eight numbers presented, Hendryx is credited with six. "Get You Somebody New" stayed on the Billboard R&B charts for nine weeks, peaking at number 50.

On every level of creativity, LaBelle, the group, are as diverse as these selections.
