The title song of 'Winner In You' is pleasantly theatrical and I have plenty of fond childhood memories of "On My Own" but,once again Patti cooks best on her uptempo dance songs and there are some great ones here!"Something Special (Is Gonna Happen Tonight" and "Twisted" both shine in the same,brassy
synth-soul vein of "New Attitude" whitch is something this lady
has plenty of.Patti's "Greatest Hits" collections are recommended
highly but as albums go this and her 1977 Epic debut are the only
available full-lengh Patti Labelle albums you'll ever need!

This album still is a favorite to me! I like how the message-driven Oh People weaves into On My Own and then to the funky Something Special and to the bridge-heavy Kiss Away...,and to the no-nonsense Twisted. Patti sings in diva like fashion with her soulful voice on here. Only the last two songs don't grab me as much since there's so much solid material on here. But this album from 1986 is Patti at her best during that decade and solidified her as a well received singer to this day! Richard Perry, even after producing several successful Pointer Sisters albums and other artists, should be commmended for producing this album for Patti. I'd get that album or CD version of it again if I wanted to hear it! It's so very well done--she makes us a winner in us by having us hear it!

In my opinion, Miss Patti, is one of the best female rhythm & blues singer of our time. With this album, she has created a base of loyal fans. With Winner In You, she has indeed a musical identity of her own. The most beautiful song in this album, On My Own, a marvelous duet with Michael McDonald, proves that she simply is'nt just another female singer. She starts the song in her lower vocal range and ends it literally soaring, reaching the very top of her range. One of her best. A winning diva all the way!

Patti LaBelle is one of the most respected and best r&b vocalists in music history. Going back to her days with the Blue Belles in the early sixties to her 70's days with LaBelle she flirted with major success, evening having a number one hit with the classic "Lady Marmalade". Despite these brushes with success (and numerous hits on the r&b charts), she more or less went unnoticed on the pop charts. Finally in 1986, she had a major hit with Winner In You. The album was spurred on by her marvelous duet with Michael McDonald, "On My Own". The song has a great melody and standout vocal performances and it spent a well deserved four weeks at number one. The album has alot more to offer including "Twisted", "Kiss Away The Pain", "You're Mine Tonight", "Sleep with Me Tonight" and "Something Special". The album became her one of and only number one, spending one week on the top in the summer of 1986. Unfortunately, she has not made the top ten since and it's a crime that someone of Ms. LaBelle's talent doesn't have more chart success.

From start to finish,Patti gives us nothing but winning tracks with this outstanding album..My personal favorites:"Oh People"here Patti touches on modern society and its'shortcomings such as poverty,hunger and homelessness along with the need for society to stand united to combat these problems that are too often overlooked by those who are considered societys"haves"..."On My Own"is a CLASSIC tale of love lost featuring legendary Michael Mcdonald..I remember this song being loved by just about everyone I knew as a junior in high school!!I LOVED this classic line that everybody(in a "rocky"relationship) seemed to be able to relate to:"Here we are talking DIVORCE and we weren't even married!!"Kiss Away The Pain"is a heart-wrenching song where Patti is basically saying:"We can figure out the HOW and WHY of our"split"at a later date,but right NOW,I need you to come and COMFORT me because my heart is really HURTING!!"Patti so emphatically sings:"Please come back baby,please come back baby,kiss it AWAY,We don't even have to EXPLAIN!!" "There's A Winner In You"is a song that comforted me GREATLY during the days when my self-esteem was under constant siege!!After being called a"dissapointment",an embarrassment,"wack","sorry"and"lame"all day long,it felt really good(pretending)to hear SOMEbody/ANYbody say that there was actually a winner in ME!! This is a caliber of album,that they don't/can't make anymore!! This album is a definite WINNER!!

WINNER IN YOU is a winner, a fun upbeat album from Patti Labelle, the voice! The album spawned the two hit singles "Oh People" and "On My Own" which was a duet with Michael McDonald, and later covered by Reba McEntire, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and Linda Davis on Reba's 1995 album STARTING OVER. The album spent one week at #1 in 1986, sadly the last album of Patti's which accomplished this feat. There's some strong material on this album, lots of uptempo synthesized tracks, this was the 80s. Some highlights of uptempo tracks include "Something Special (Is Gonna Happen Tonight)", "Twisted", "You're Mine Tonight", and "Beat My Heart Like A Drum". There are also some really captivating ballads from Patti, such as "Kiss Away The Pain", "Sleep With Me Tonight", "Finally We're Back Together" and "There's A Winner In You" (from the play Pipes). Overall WINNER IN YOU is exactly that, a WINNER, and worth checking out, even for the casual Patti Labelle fan.
