Nightbirds is an album by the all-female singing group Labelle. Notable for their biggest hit, the number-one song, “Lady Marmalade”, it became the group’s most successful album to date.
Reviewed by Rob Bowman
The finest of Labelle’s original albums, Nightbirds was recorded in New Orleans with funkmeister Allen Toussaint handling the production chores and, one assumes, members of the Meters taking care of the session work. Worth the price of admission for the Bob Crewe-written “Lady Marmalade” alone, the album veers between the strutting New Orleans, horn-laden singles and more mainstream pop material.
