    Patti Labelle gets sick onstage in Ohio

    This broke my heart. Her touring schedule is too harsh for a 78 year old with chronic illness. I know she enjoys performing but night after night in different cities is just not the way. If she were...

    Aaah! Now I don't feel so bad.
  3. I am so embarrassed that all these years I didn't...

    I am so embarrassed that all these years I didn't know The Jones Girls were the vocals on Dexter Wansel's "The Sweetest Pain" -- one of my perennials. Were they credited as "featured vocalists" or...

    This could have been interesting 20 years ago when his voice was more formidable.

    I didn't even know about this one. I am so pleased that Mahalia gets two well-made biopics. I hope this one has a soundtrack.

    That reality show was completely beneath her. She was head and shoulders above those other girls in artistry, talent and legacy. She'd been recording for 20+ years at that time and the others treated...

    One of the great underrated singers in R&B/Soul. Gorgeous voice and beautiful to look at. A superstar that never happened. I was a MASSIVE fan of "Precious" and "A Love Supreme." In the early 90s, I...

    That is not at all clear. It appears that you were labelling Teena as blue-eyed soul. Maybe it's your...

    Teena Marie is NOT "blue-eyed soul." Unless Lorraine Ellison, Linda Jones and Yvonne Fair are also blue-eyed soul. That title diminishes Teena's artistry and musicianship, and her commitment to...
  11. Exciting! So many great recordings on this album.

    Exciting! So many great recordings on this album.

    I thought "Mystery of Love" was recorded as a duet with James Ingram but when Geffen wouldn't agree to label it as a "duet with James Ingram" he insisted that most of his vocal be removed. I don't...

    Not my favorite Donna Summer album but I will probably get it. At the moment, her family owns her catalog so at least I know they will profit from this release.
  14. She does look fantastic!

    She does look fantastic!

    The single "Break My Soul" also went to No. 1 this week. Top single and album in the same week! 25 years after her first top 10 chart appearance with Destiny's Child. She's certainly testing the...

    I really loved her. In that time period between 1978 and 1983, my favorites were Chaka, Ross, Donna Summer and ONJ.

    She battled courageously against cancer for so long. By all accounts she was a...

    Ha! That would be rich coming from the guy who produced "Pieces of Ice."

    Gladys before Dionne?!!! Hmm...

    Amy Grant?

    Gladys is deserving but so are Dionne, Johnny Mathis and Roberta Flack.

    Couldn't agree more! Looking forward to seeing her when she returns to the U.S. And will happily take whatever she can give...although I will grimace a bit if she does 'More Today Than Yesterday.'

    BIM is a good album. I particularly like her vocals on "Too Shy To Say" and "Come In From The Rain." Richard Perry knew how to showcase the loveliest bits of her vocal range.

    There are no...

    I have listened to Phyllis more than any other single artist in the last two years. I even read her biography again. I am completely enthralled by the majesty of her musical legacy. I am captivated...

    Thanks for posting! Love Gladys! I love all these ladies still giving us everything they got at 78+ years old -- Gladys, Patti, Ross, Dionne, Darlene Love, Freda Payne, etc. Their precedents were...

    I don't think of Labelle as just Patti -- Sarah and Nona were key to the magic of Labelle. I love Labelle and I love Patti.

    Miss McNair was a lovely woman with a lovely voice. She was not a good fit for Motown. Her Warner Brothers recordings were great but her Motown recordings were mediocre [[by Motown standards).

    Labelle will never be forgotten enough to let someone steal their legacy and their money. Jukebox musicals are big business. Tina Turner - a non-writer - was able to sell her catalog for $50 million...
