Recorded originally in 1982, LIVE IN WASHINGTON D.C. captures Patti Labelle in all her R&B diva glory. From her days with the old-school soul outfit the Blue Belles and 1970s funksters LaBelle, straight through her impressive solo career in the decades following, Labelle's powerhouse performances have always thrilled audiences, a fact made plain on this compelling live set. Labelle revisits the hits "What Can I Do For You," "If You Don't Know Me By Now," and "Lady Marmalade," giving each the full count of her lung power, passion, and signature Patti Labelle style.
