"Voulez-vous coucher avec moi, ce soir?"

Nightbirds became Labelle's most successful record, capturing the trio at their creative peak. The 1974 Top 10 album included their #1 hit, "Lady Marmalade" and after a decade of dues-paying hard work performing as Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, Labelle found international fame.

The brilliant voices of the three band members, Patti LaBelle, Sarah Dash and Nona Hendryx were praised for mixing their R&B/pop sound with elements of rock and funk. The success of the album helped to pioneer the disco movement and influenced dance music for four decades. In 2003, the album was listed as one of Rolling Stone magazine's 500 greatest albums of all time.

"Hey sister, go sister, soul sister, go sister!"
Raw and vital, classic 70's, evocative of a disco era.
