    Though I was born and raised in Detroit my parents were both from Tennessee. Sweet potato pie has always been a part of out household growing up. Every time that I taste pumpkin pie it seems as if something is missing.

We didn't eat much cornbread or any chit'lins, They STANK! The side of my family that did come from the deep south moved away and did not eat any southern foods. Then, half of us live out west, so we are far removed from any southern culture.
    Gotcha but yeah I get that some black families didn't stay in the South long enough to partake in some of the "sweeter" food...

    Some of our families weren't even there during the Reconstruction.

    Thanks Reese, I'll try again to find it since Thanksgiving has come and gone.

    They are a guilty pleasure, folks. For sure. Miss Patti now has a Buttermilk Pie at Walmart.

    Patti says she's diabetic. That she cooks, "but only tastes the food...you got to put health first." And she continuing the food line. " With Walmart.. Savory Frozen Soul Food, " announced at the 25th. Essence Festival. Yummm!!

    Winner In Me needs a deluxe re-issue. Lovely album. Oh People had a great UK 12” remix that’s yet to appear on CD, likewise, as far as I know, the b-side, Love Attack.

    I still have that on 12" vinyl. I recall there being a lovely ballad on that album called Kiss away the pain, but other than On my own and oh people i found it to be a disappointing album. I shall have to give it another listen. Maybe i missed something. It was her most successful album in the US and UK so it probably is surprising that it never got the expanded treatment.

    I thought it was a good album but it was sort of trendy in that poppy 80s sort of way. I much prefer her Philadelphia International recordings as well as her later MCA albums.

    Me too. Her Philly albums were superb, and i really enjoyed the majority of her MCA albums with the exception of Winner in you and the one which contained her version of If you asked me to, the title of which currently eludes me. She did some really strong albums at MCA.

    That album was entitled Be Yourself. I concur about the quality of both; Patti was never an album artist, at any rate.

    It was only when the Philly albums came out that i really listened to her albums. I think her 80's and 90's albums were very consistent with the exception of the previously mentioned two. Be Yourself was particularly bad, but i did like her version of If you asked me too which later proved its hit potential for Celine Dion.

    I still love the Epic lp's, having great memories of Patti's live concerts at the time.

    Her best albums to me were "Patti LaBelle" (the 1977 debut was flawless imho), "Tasty", "The Spirit's in It", "I'm in Love Again" (her best album by far), "Winner in You", "Burnin'" and "Gems".

    "Be Yourself" was very hit and miss. MCA didn't know whether to keep her in the pop field like they did with "Winner in You" or have her go new jack...
