"Labelle's NIGHTBIRDS is an enduring classic album, and captures the trio at it's peak creatively, musically & commercially. Patti, Sarah & Nona gained worldwide success, a Top 10 album and the #1 smash hit LADY MARMALADE after a decade of dues paying hard work. This album illustrates all their influences, with a mix of R&B, rock, gospel, soul and the amazing production by Allen Toussaint. Labelle got the right sound & songs that has made this album timeless.
The songs are amazing, both the original material written by Nona Hendryx and the outside material. It all comes together on this brilliant visionary album . LADY MARMALADE is just the beginning of this fantastic album. Labelle rings out loud & clear on socially concious songs like the astounding WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU - a loud, brash & bold song that represents their hybrid sound at it's best. SOMEBODY SOMEWHERE, ARE YOU LONELY, SPACE CHILDREN and YOU TURN ME ON are some of Nona's best, most concise, tight songs. DON'T BRING ME DOWN is funky as hell, and would have made a great single. The use of horns & brass on the album sounds as triumphant as this album actually is.
It was on Rolling Stone's list of Top 50 Albums by Female Artists, went gold & has been in print since it's release. Labelle broke new ground & hit it big with NIGHTBIRDS, and it's awesome music to hear. Like a wake-up call that the time was here for a new sound of exciting music , Labelle is much needed to hear today for their sheer power, talent & boldness in making great music."
