Labelle Is Back

One of the great R&B female vocalists groups of all time is back today with thr release of their new cd titled "Back To Now". Labelle, which consists of Patti Labelle, Nona Hendryx, an Sarah Dash hasn't released a new recording in over 30 years, so this is definitely a treat for old fans, and hopefully young folks will support the trio who's signature hit was "Lady Marmalade". The New York Daily News caught up with the trio, who used Lenny Kravitz, famed production team Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff and Wyclef Jean as producers on the project.

It's interesting to note, that Hendryx was the primary songwriter for the group in it's heyday, and of course Patti handled the vocals. This is a testament to working together for the common good of the group, and leaving egos at the door.
