Pressure Cookin' - Labelle

Pressure Cookin'
    Originally the quartet Patti LaBelle & The Bluebelles (Sarah Dash, Nona Hendryx and Cindy Birdsong – before Birdsong’s departure made it a trio), the transformation from bouffant wigs and the reworking on standards such as ‘Over The Rainbow’ and ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ to a futuristic, space-age-clad trio of high-powered vocalists finally took hold with the 1973 release of Labelle’s sole album for RCA Records, PRESSURE COOKIN.’

•    The transition from ‘60s girl group to ‘70s funk’n’soul sisters had been masterminded by former British TV producer Vicki Wickham who oversaw the production of the production of Labelle’s recordings for Track Records and two albums for Warner Brothers (a self-titled 1971 set and 1972’s "Moonshadow”).  PRESSURE COOKIN’ boasted seven compositions by Hendryx including the now-classic ‘(Can I Speak To You Before You Go To) Hollywood?’ which became a staple of the trio’s dynamic live performances.

•    Stevie Wonder penned the album’s lone single, ‘Open Up Your Heart’ as well as co-producing the track and ‘Going On A Holiday’ (although uncredited for contractual reasons on both cuts).  PRESSURE COOKIN’ also included an inspiring medley of Thunderclap Newman’s ‘Something In The Air’ and Gil Scott-Heron’s timeless ‘The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.’

•    Originally reissued in the US in 2010, the CD has been generally unavailable for the last few years and includes notes by renowned US writer A. Scott Galloway, edited from the original 2010 essay with quotes from Vicki Wickham, Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash.

N.B. This album is released August 18 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Down To Love Town: Expanded Edition
•    Formed in 1966, THE ORIGINALS worked as studio backup singers at Motown and featured on tracks such as ‘What Becomes Of The Broken Hearted’ by Jimmy Ruffin, ‘For Once In My Life’ by Stevie Wonder and Edwin Starr’s politically fuelled jam, ‘War.’ The original Originals were made up of four singers, the group's baritone and founder Walter Gaines, tenors Hank Dixon and C.P. Spencer (an original member of The Spinners) and also bass singer, Freddie Gorman, who was one of the writers of ‘Please Mr. Postman.’ In the late 60s, under the guidance and writing expertise of Al Green, The Originals scored two of their biggest hits early in their career with ‘Baby I'm For Real’ and the Gold certified, ‘The Bells.’

•    DOWN TO LOVE TOWN was the groups eighth album for Motown and was released in 1977. Produced by Michael Sutton and the Originals The album opens with intent on the horn and wah-wah led Disco/Soul stomper ‘Hurry Up And Wait’ before making way for the title track and only single from the album. ‘Down To Love Town’ (Disco #1/Pop #47) was originally included on their 1976 album Communique and became a true Disco classic with an incredible and impassioned lead vocal from Freddy Gorman's tenor/baritone, as he demands everybody join him in ‘Love Town,’ while the interplay between the guitar, strings and percussion keep you on the crest of the wave for the full six minutes of this 12” remix.  Other standouts include the smooth up-tempo groover ‘You Are A Blessing To Me’ and the passionate ballad ‘Sunrise.’  

•    Following on from their reissue of The Originals Lamont Dozier produced 1975 album "California Sunset,” (CDBBR0044) BBR are proud to present DOWN TO LOVE TOWN, expertly remastered and complete with extensive liner notes and bonus tracks.
