Description by

Patti LaBelle and The Bluebelles are the sound of Philadelphia at its best. Patti began her singing career with the Ordettes, which evolved into The Bluebelles in 1962. The group members included Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash, and Cindy Birdsong who left to join the Supremes in 1967. This collection features all their early '60s chart toppers, including the song they're perhaps best known for - "I Sold My Heart To The Junkman".

Product Description:

GOLDEN "PHILLY" CLASSICS includes some alternate versions of Bluebelles' classics recorded on the Newtown/Nicetown label.
Includes liner notes by David Nathan.
Personnel: Patti LaBelle (vocals).
Liner Note Author: David Nathan .
A complete serving of Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles' promising Nicetown/Newtown stint from 1962 to 1963 featuring two takes of "I Sold My Heart to the Junkman," their first hit that really wasn't. The Bluebelles received the credit, but the Starlets, a Chicago group, actually recorded the song while visiting Philadelphia. The Starlets sued, got paid, and, eventually, got credit. These are the door openers, the songs that made the Bluebelles the sweethearts of the Apollo and the Uptown theaters. Knock-'em-dead renditions of "Danny Boy," "You'll Never Walk Alone," and "Down the Aisle" are but a few of many highlights. A thorough account of Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles' entire career, excluding the LaBelle sides, would take at least 60 tracks to cover. ~ Andrew Hamilton
