Midnight Soulstice: Tribute to Lyn Collins feat. Fred Wesley, Marva Whitney and more…

Der am 13. März 2005 verstorbenen Soul Diva Lyn Collins widmeten Mr. Felty und DJ Pari vergangene Woche ihre Show:

Midnight-Soulstice co-host DJ Pari managed Lyn’s last European tour in 2005 and was her de-facto manager in the final weeks of her life. We’ll discuss her legacy, talk to people who knew Lyn and we’ll surprise you with some very special guests on tonight’s show – like FRED WESLEY, MARVA WHITNEY, DRIKA and Lyn’s oldest son BOBBY. But most importantly, we’ll play lots of Lyn’s music and give her the biggest radio tribute she’s ever had – because she deserves it!

Lyn is mainly known for her association with James Brown – between 1970 and 1975, the Godfather of Soul produced two albums and a dozen singles for her, that were released on his People label. Because of her raunchy vocal style, subtleness and chit-chat with her audience, JB dubbed her „Mama Feelgood“ and „The Female Preacher“. Lyn was also the main featured female vocalist on the James Brown show during those years. Her biggest hit to this day is the gospel-style Funk song „Think (about it)“, which was released in 1972 and later widely sampled in Hip Hop, most famously in Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock’s „It takes two“, and in hits by Janet Jackson, Slick Rick, EPMD and Fatman Scoop among many others.
