The Labelle demo tapes

This was a simple rehearsal session recorded with several female vocalists gathered round a piano in The Marquee Studios. The producer was Vicki Wickham.

Artistes are Patti Labelle, Sarah Dash and Nona Hendryx. Yes the very beginnings of Labelle. They were signed to Track Records (Kit and Chris) and these are early demos. Very early!

Thank you to John Cavanagh who contacted Vicki who supplied the details to identify this session.
