Sony, what took you so long ? For years, we waited and waited in vain for some label to have both Labelle's terrific pre-Lady Marmalade RCA album "Pressure Cookin'" and the equally terrific and underated "Phoenix" issued - and for the first time too - on CD, but nobody was interested, despite pleas from diehard fans on chat forums, etc.

Then finally, BGO, an independant UK label, responded by collecting together and digitally remastering all three original Epic label Lady Marmalade era Labelle albums in one CD and putting it out as "Night Birds/Phoenix/Chameleon". Brilliant idea. Shortly thereafter, US indie label Reel Music, answered our prayers by also digitally remastering and releasing "Pressure Cookin" on CD. So finally, we have all of Labelle's original 70s albums in CD format and we have two indie labels to thank for that.

So big music label Sony, why bother with this "Original Album Classics" release now that others have stolen a march over you ? This product not only comes across as redundant, we don't even know if the albums in here have been remastered. Five stars for content, one star off for poor timing.

Dear Sony, it's not too late to redeem yourself - you can now do the next best thing by reissuing on CD Labelle's first two 70s albums, "Labelle" and "Moonshadow", both issued on CD by Wounded Bird, the former still available but rare and expensive and the latter deleted and now unavailable except on download. Both these releases don't have their sounds remastered, so Sony, you can do one better and put these two albums out digitally remastered.

C'mon Sony, show us fans you can do it.

3.0 out of 5 stars BRILLIANCE FINALLY RECOGNIZED AND MADE AVAILABLE!!!! 16 May 2012
By salubriousjazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I HAVE BEEN WAITING AN ETERNITY FOR PRESSURE COOKIN' AND PHOENIX TO BECOME AVAILABLE ON CD. IMAGINE MY EXCITEMENT AND SHEER BLISSFUL DELIGHT WHEN I SAW THIS 3 CD PACKAGE. SADLY AFTER PURCHASING AND OPENING THIS BEAUTIFULLY PACKAGED ITEM, I WAS WOEFULLY DISAPPOINTED. DON'T MISUNDERSTAND ME, NEVER WITH THE REMARKABLE VOICES OF THESE THREE, BUT THE MINIMAL PACKAGING AND PRESENTATION OF THIS CLASSICALLY HISTORIC MUSIC.

ONLY AFTER A SMALL INDEPENDENT COMPANY ("REEL MUSIC") RELEASED PRESSURE COOKIN' ON CD, DID MAJOR LABEL SONY FINALLY DECIDE TO RESPECT LABELLE AND RELEASE THESE JEWELS AS A TRILOGY. FIRSTLY, THIS RELEASE SHOWS NO PROOF OF ANY OF THESE LPS HAVING BEEN REMASTERED. THE MIX ON PRESURE COOKIN' IS ALL WRONG. ALTHOUGH THE BASS IS MASSIVE AND UP FRONT, THE MARVELOUS HORN PUNCHES AND ACCENTS ARE SO LOW THEY ARE ACTUALLY MISSING! THE SAME HOLDS TRUE FOR THE GUITARS, THEY SHOULD BE JUMPING OUT RIGHT AT YOU. INSTEAD BOTH THE HORNS AND GUITARS ARE VERY LOW IN THE MIX. THE GIRLS VOICES IN THE BACKGROUND ARE MIXED SO LOW YOU HAVE TO STRAIN TO HEAR THEM. YOU HAVE TO TURN THE VOLUME WAYYYYYY UP FOR THE MUSIC TO COME TO YOU. I'M DISGUSTED.

ON TOP OF THIS THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO WRITTEN INFORMATION REGARDING THE 3 LPS. NO BOOKLET, NO PAMPHLET, NO INSERT OF ANY KIND, NO NOTHIN'!!!!!!!! THIS IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. ALL OF THIS HISTORICAL INFORMATION ABOUT THIS MUSIC AND THESE ICONS AND THEY HAVE INCLUDED NOTHING!!!!! I WAS STUNNED.

UNFORTUNATELY THE SOUND ON THE "REEL MUSIC" RELEASE OF PRESSURE COOKIN' IS NO BETTER. APPARENTLY THEY RELEASED THEIRS IN CONJUNCTION WITH SONY, (SINCE IT DOESN'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT BEING LICENCED BY SONY).THEY PROBABLY JUST USED THE SAME TRANSFER. THEY DO HOWEVER INCLUDE A 14 PAGE EXTREMELY INFORMATIVE BOOKLET WITH ALL LYRICS INCLUDED. WONDERFUL CONTRIBUTIONS FORM NONA, SARAH, VICKI WICKHAM, MAXAYN AND ANDRE'LEWIS. THEY JUST MENTION THE MUSIC WAS TRANSFERRED FROM THE ORIGINAL ANALOG TAPES, BUT NO MENTION OF REMASTERING, AND IT SOUNDS LIKE THE SAME TRANSFER ON THIS RELEASE. SONY COULD HAVE JUST DONE SO MUCH BETTER. LABELLE DESERVES IT.

To get three LaBelle albums in one package is amazing. I have two out of the three on vinyl but had to have this cd package. Plus, each album is packaged in its own separate jacket, like the album. Well done and for a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Labelle ~ Phoenix/Pressure Cooking/Nightbirds 20 Jun 2011
By Freddie One - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I'm getting this one because I don't have PRESSURE COOKING and I have PHOENIX on cassette. I do have NIGHBIRDS. I know there is another release by a different company available but I have chosen this item because it will give me only one duplicate but "new" CD's of the others. I hope the sound is good. PHOENIX has become my favorite Labelle product. CHANCES GO ROUND, ACTION TIME, GOOD INTENTIONS, and of course MESSING WITH MY MIND. I gave it five stars because the music is awesome!
