Amazing funk from one of the greatest deep soul singers of the 70s – the legendary Lyn Collins
, heard here on a 20 track set of tunes all produced by James Brown! James worked with a number of female vocalists in the 60s and 70s – but Collins
was arguably the strongest, and the one with the biggest potential for challenging the ranks of better-charted female vocalists at the time. She's got a totally kicking way of putting over a tune – one that's steeped in gospel and southern soul traditions, but lean and clean enough to bristle alongside the tightness of the grooves she was getting on record from the JBs! In fact, most of the tracks on the set crackle like the best funk tunes from early 70s James Brown or JBs – and the collection goes out of its way to bring together the hardest-hitting tunes by Lyn from these years – getting past some of the slower album tracks to go for some key rare singles! Titles include "Wheel Of Life", "Mama Feelgood", "Baby Don't Do It", "Don't Make Me Over", "I'll Never Let You Break My Heart Again", "Rock Me Again & Again & Again", "How Long Can I Keep It Up", "Ain't No Sunshine", "What My Baby Needs Now Is A Little More Lovin", "Never Gonna Give You Up", "Do Your Thing", "Take Me Just As I Am", "Think (About It)", "You Can't Love Me If You Don't Respect Me", and "Put It On The Line".
