Winner In You by Patti LaBelle
Released: Jan 1986
Label: Geffen
Be warned: Winner in You doesn't include "New Attitude" and "Stir It Up," the singles from the 1984 Beverly Hills Cop soundtrack that made her a pop star. She was stuck at Philadelphia International Records, so two years had passed before she could capitalize on the singles' success. Baby boomer trends had changed, so Winner in You emphasizes the quiet storm. "On My Own" (with Michael McDonald), "Oh People" and "Kiss Away the Pain" are fine ballads, and LaBelle uses her famously ear-piercing voice to stirring effect. But you can't help but miss those dance hits at which she excels.
