Labelle: Pressure Cookin'
Title: Pressure Cookin'
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Digitally remastered edition of this 1973 album. Originally the quartet Patti Labelle & the Blue belle), the transformation from bouffant wigs and the reworking on standards to a futuristic, space-age-clad trio of high-powered vocalists finally took hold with the release of PRESSURE COOKIN'. The album boasted seven compositions by member Nona Hendryx including the now-classic '(Can I Speak to You Before You Go To) Hollywood?' which became a staple of the trio's dynamic live performances. Stevie Wonder penned the album's lone single, 'Open Up Your Heart' as well as co-producing the track and 'Going on a Holiday' (although not credited for contractual reasons on both cuts). PRESSURE COOKIN' also included an inspiring medley of Thunderclap Newman's 'Something in the Air' and Gil Scott-Heron's timeless 'The Revolution Will Not Be Televised.' Includes notes by renowned US writer A. Scott Galloway with quotes from Vicki Wickham, Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash.
