Album Review

Patti LaBelle enjoyed the biggest hit of her solo career when she switched labels from Philadelphia International to MCA. None of her albums had consistently clicked since she'd gone solo in 1977, but LaBelle's 1986 MCA debut topped the pop album charts, anchored by the huge hit "On My Own." The duet with Michael McDonald dominated both the pop and R&B scenes, staying atop the R&B charts for four weeks and giving LaBelle her first number one pop single as a solo artist. She even earned a second Top 40 hit with "Oh, People," even though there was another fine single on the LP, "Kiss Away the Pain," that was ignored. Still, this album gave LaBelle the elusive solo stardom she'd sought since 1977.

Customer Reviews


This album is a pure CLASSIC! Patti was at the top of her game when she made this album, Coming after "New Attitude" and "Stir it Up" (which were huge in the clubs in the 80's). "On My Own" is a beautiful song and was a big hit. "Winner In You" and "Oh, People" were also very popular tunes, as well as being inspirational. If you wanna dance, pick "Something Special", "You're Mine Tonight", and "Beat My Heart Like A Drum". All of the songs here are great. This is one to treasure.

The first four cuts are all classic and easily accessible to those less attuned to Ms Patti's vocal gymnastics, and the final and title cut displays her tremendous range and builds to a triumphal climax - it will make anyone feel like a "Winner".

Soul diva Patti LaBelle enjoyed one of the longest-lived careers in contemporary music, notching hits in a variety of sounds ranging from girl group pop to space-age funk to lush ballads. Born Patricia Holt in Philadelphia on May 24, 1944, she grew up singing in a local Baptist choir, and in 1960 teamed with friend Cindy Birdsong to form a group called the Ordettes. A year later, following the additions of vocalists Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash, the group was rechristened the Blue Belles; with producer...
