Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Hendryx, Nona - Nona Nona
Pop New - LP AFL1-4565 RCA
Sealed 1983 Original. “After A Few Years Doing Session Work, Hendryx, With Help From The Band Material, Came Up With This Winner That Drops The Hard Rock Of Her Debut For A More Talking Heads-Tinged Pop/Funk. Although The Songwriting Could Be A Little Sharper, Hendryx's Powerful Voice Gives The Record Focus And Always Commands Your Attention. Extra Musical Emphasis Provided By Sly Dunbar, Jamaaladeen Tacuma And Nile Rodgers.” - John Dougan, AMG... more details

Hendryx, Nona - Nona Hendryx Nona Hendryx
Soul Used - LP PE 34863 Epic
1977 White Label Promo With Timing Strip On Front Jacket And Gold Promo Stamp On Back. “Wearing Skintight Pants, Black Leather And Brandishing A Bowie Knife On The LP Cover, Nona Hendryx Announces Her Intentions Loudly And Clearly On Her Debut Record. At The Time, This Record Was Unpromotable (Hell, It Would Be Today), Mainly Because The Record Company And Radio Stations Didn't Know What To Do With A Huge-Voiced African-American Woman Who Was Comfortable And Capable Of Singing Hard Rock As Well As Soul Music. So, As Usual, They Turned Their Backs On The Record And It Disappeared Almost As Quickly As It Was Released. Which Is A Shame, Because It's A Nasty, Relentless Chunk Of Hard-Edged Rock'N'Soul That Was Just A Bit Ahead Of Its Time. Long Out Of Print, But Worth Searching For.” – John Dougan, All Music Guide... more details

Hendryx, Nona - The Heat The Heat
Funk New - LP AFL1-5465 RCA
Sealed 1985 Original. Small Saw Notch. “1985's The Heat Brings Together Rock And Synth Funk With Memorable Results. The Heat Is Quite A Contrast To The Solo Albums That Patti Labelle Was Offering In The Mid-'80s; Labelle And Hendryx Both Had Crossover Appeal, But While Labelle Was Going After A Combination Of Urban And Adult Contemporary Fans, Hendryx Was Going After A Combination Of Pop/Rock, New Wave/ And Urban Fans. The Heat, For All Its Funkiness, Proved To Be Too Rock-Minded For R&B Stations; Regardless, Hendryx Has A Lot Of Fun On Infectious Offerings Such As "A Girl Like That," "Rock This House," "I Need Love," And "Revolutionary Dance." Hendryx Wrote Or Co-Wrote Everything On This Album, Including "If Looks Could Kill (D.O.A.)," Which Should Not Be Confused With The Song That Both Heart And Dance-Pop Singer Pamala Stanley Recorded In The Mid-'80s. The Producers On The Heat Include Hendryx, Arthur Baker, And The Late Bernard Edwards, Who Co-Led Chic With Nile Rodgers In The Late '70s And Early '80s. Edwards, Like Rodgers, Broadened His Horizons Considerably As A Producer In The '80s; Many Of The Albums Edwards Worked On After Chic's Breakup Didn't Sound Anything Like Chic, And That Is Certainly True Of The Heat (Which Is A Long Way From Chic's Influential Disco-Funk). The Heat Is An Exciting Document Of Hendryx In The Mid-'80s.” Alex Henderson, AMG.... more details
