James Brown had several incredibly talented “funky divas” in his late ‘60s and early ‘70s stable, including Vicki Anderson and MarvaWhitney. But as great as those two powerhouse singers were, Lyn Collins was the strongest hit maker of that funky JB era.Her strong voice and commanding stage presence – which earned her the nicknames “The Female Preacher” and “Mama Feelgood” –quickly proved to be a potent addition to the People Records universe. In the spring of 1972 her second single, the driving andridiculously funky “Think (About It)” hit the R&B music world like a ton of bricks. As fans young and old know, thanks to its timeless,relentless groove and powerful vocals, “Think” gained a powerful second life in the 1980s thanks to the hip-hop generation, fueling theplatinum smash “It Takes Two,” by Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock in 1988 and additionally sampled by dozens of hip-hop and dance musicartists up to the present day.But Collins was far from a One Hit Wonder: she was as vocally adept on ballads as she was with full-blown funk. She proves thisthroughouther debut album, which was released in 1972 on James Brown’s new People Records label – the imprint’s second full-length release.To wit, aside from the title smash: a powerful and emotional cover of Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine”; the socially progressive “Women’sLib”; the Gamble & Huff-penned “Never Gonna Give You Up” (originally done by Jerry Butler); and even a daring, muscular take on thesong “Fly Me To The Moon,” made famous by, among others, Frank Sinatra.All throughout Think (About It), Collins shows that she was a vocal force to be reckoned with. Backed by a James Brown-assembledmusical crew that included Pee Wee Ellis, Fred Wesley and, of course, James Brown himself, the platter was bound to impress and succeed.And that it did.

Get On Down now presents here, an unearthed gem from the famed "Female Preacher." "We Want To Parrty, Parrty, Parrty" was previously unavailable on any Lyn Collins full-length release, and has never been reissued as a standalone 7-inch single until now. The track is a rollicking funk burner, produced by James Brown himself, and has sampled its way into tracks by Eric B. & Rakim, The Prodigy, De La Soul, and Big Daddy Kane among others, and comes on a large hole 45 with freshly re-mastered audio. "You Can't Beat TwoPeople In Love", the funky soul-ballad B-side, is not to be missed either, featuring additional backing vocals by Brown.
