Wickham advised the group to move to London and change their entire image and sound,  much to the chagrin of Patti LaBelle, who feared the group would isolate their older fans with a new laid back "earthier" look. Wickham also advised them to change their name to simply "Labelle". Ditching the wigs and dresses, Labelle settled on Afros and jeans. They debuted this new look while backing The Who during a stop in New York. Following this, Labelle signed a contract with Track Records, The Who's label, which received distribution from Warner Bros. Records . In 1971, the group released their first album, simply titled Labelle , quickly following it up with the 1972 album, Moon Shadow . The albums featured the group bringing in gospel soul renditions of rock hits such as " Wild Horses " and " Won't Get Fooled Again ". While not being commercial success, the albums did become critically acclaimed, establishing the act as a progressive soul unit, while also recording daring material such as "Morning Much Better" and "Touch Me All Over".
