Gamble/Huff/Wansel Philadelphia classic ‘The Spirits In It’, championed by Mancuso is a classic disco affair from the larger-than-life diva Patti Labelle. Sultry sax, screaming vocals and catchy piano provide an excellent start to this album with the dance floor favourite title track. Labelle reminds us of Tina Turner, but with that disco edge.
