Winner In You ~ Patti Labelle
Winner In You ~ Patti Labelle
The title song of 'Winner In You' is pleasantly theatrical and I have plenty of fond childhood memories of "On My Own" but,once again Patti cooks best on her uptempo dance songs and there are some great ones here!"Something Special (Is Gonna Happen Tonight" and "Twisted" both shine in the same,brassy
synth-soul vein of "New Attitude" whitch is something this lady
has plenty of.Patti's "Greatest Hits" collections are recommended
highly but as albums go this and her 1977 Epic debut are the only
available full-lengh Patti Labelle albums you'll ever need!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Patti's Party!, July 15 2004
And party it IS!From the ebullient hit "Joy To Have Your Love" through the chunky New Orleans FONK rhythms of "Funky Music","Dan Swit Me","You Can't Judge A Book By The Cover" and
the upbeat "I Think About You" Patti's self-titled debut outside the group Labelle puts her souring voice into it's proper grooving context!And don't kid yourself-Patti also makes her usual pretty mess of ballads like the classic "Since I Don't Have You" and "You Are My Friend".Sure it is a little searching in places but she does an amazing job with the materail she's
given.And this is where i state my general opinion of Patti… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars FREE!!!!!!!!!, July 5 2004
This is the closest album thing to avante garde jazz that
Carlos Santana every did.Featuring brilliantly dramatic string accompanyment by harpist/arranger Alice Coltrane,her harp also
plays a big role.The music is typically otherwordly and if you close your eyes while listening you will believe you are being transported to another world!Wheather orchestral,rock or jazz
the stylistic blend of sound and YES-great sense of melody make
this a high point for both musicians.Alice Coltrane's entire
catalog,by the way,is also definately worth checking out if you like what you hear on this recording!
