Labelle – The Artist
Labelle is an American all-female singing group who were a popular vocal group of the 1960s and 1970s. The group was formed after the disbanding of two rival girl groups in the area around Philadelphia and Trenton, the Ordettes and the Del-Capris, forming as a new version of the former group, then later changing their name to the Blue Belles (later Bluebelles). The founding members were Patti LaBelle (formerly Patricia Holte), Cindy Birdsong, Nona Hendryx, and Sarah Dash. As the Bluebelles, and later Patti LaBelle and the Bluebelles, the group found success with ballads in the doo-wop genre, most notably “Down the Aisle (The Wedding Song)”, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, and “Over the Rainbow”. After Birdsong departed to join the Supremes in 1967, the group, following the advice of Vicki Wickham, changed its look, musical direction, and style to re-form as Labelle in 1971. Their funk rock recordings of that period became cult favourites for their brash interpretation of rock and roll and for dealing with subject matter that was not typically touched by female black groups. Finally – after adapting glam rock and wearing outlandish space-age and glam costumes – the group found success with the proto-disco smash “Lady Marmalade” in 1974, leading to their successful album Nightbirds. The group members each went on their own after the end of a tour in 1976, going on to have significant solo success.
Lady Marmalade – The Song
‘Lady Marmalade’ is a song written by Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan. The song is famous for its sexually suggestive French chorus of “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?”, which translates into English as “Do you want to go to bed with me?”. The song first became a popular hit in both the UK and the US when it was recorded in 1974 by the American R&B group Labelle. The song has had many cover versions over the years. In 1998, girl group All Saints released a cover of the song that peaked at number one on the UK Singles Chart. The 2001 version by singers Christina Aguilera, Mýa, Pink and rapper Lil’ Kim, recorded for the Moulin Rouge! soundtrack, was a number-one hit in the UK and the US.
The Double Bed – The Shape
This vinyl single has been reworked into a silhouette of a double bed. A bed is a piece of furniture which is used as a place to sleep and relax. Most modern beds consist of a soft, cushioned mattress on a bed frame, the mattress resting either on a solid base, often wood slats, or a sprung base. Many beds include a box spring inner-sprung base, which is a large mattress-sized box containing wood and springs that provide additional support and suspension for the mattress. Beds are available in many sizes, ranging from infant-sized bassinets and cribs, to small beds for a single person or adult, to large queen and king-size beds designed for two people.
