 There’s some music that gets in your head and never leaves.  Long after radio forgets it and deejays stop spinning it – you hear it in your own mind from time to time and remember what you loved about it.  Nona Hendryx’s Transformation is one of those songs for me.  This experimental, 80’s dance tune is the perfect mix of that edgy funk/rock blend Hendryx has always dabbled in well.  As one of the original members of Labelle, Nona Hendryx is a R&B music icon. Never satisfied with labels, she has consistently pushed musical boundaries.  She has collaborated with pretty much every musician and singer who matters, but has always walked just outside of success as a solo artist.  Nonetheless, she shined brightly in Transformation.  Hendryx is proof that black girls really do rock!  Love.
