It's Alright with Me is the third solo album released by singer Patti LaBelle, her third off her deal with Epic Records released in 1979. After a modestly successful solo debut and a critically acclaimed but commercially maligned sophomore release, LaBelle worked on her third Epic release with renowned producer Skip Scarborough. Despite some potential, much like her previous releases, the album failed to gain an audience. Two years and an album later, LaBelle left Epic for her hometown's renowned label Philadelphia International. The notable tracks on the album were the modest disco hit "Music is My Way of Life" and the pop ballad "Come What May", which was an early favorite in LaBelle's live shows.
