LYN COLLINS - WHEEL OF LIFE






Unfortunately for Lyn Collins, her epic recording of "Think" overshadows the rest of her recorded output. Her debut James Brown production (as heard here today) isn't up to the proportions of that mighty record (as few truly are) but it's a damn fine record with incredible vocals by Lyn and a KILLER groove supplied by the Brown group.

JB discovered Lyn through a demo tape that she sent to the Godfather, and he was so impressed that she was slated to replace Marva Whitney as JB's female foil in the touring Revue. However, Vicki Anderson decided to come back to the group, but JB recognized Lyn's incredible talent, sent the young lady to a session in Georgia which yielded this record.

Great record. As much as I like as well as "Think", for me her best record is "Rock Me Again and Again and Again and Again". Just one man's opinion.
