AllMusic Review by

As one of James Brown's proteges, Lyn Collins, who passed away in 2005, was provided with some of the nastiest grooves any female soul singer from the music's classic era could hope for. But even if Collins hadn't had the Godfather of Soul on her side, her fierce soul-sister vocals would have made her a legend, anyway. MAMA FEELGOOD--released in 2007--collects 20 of Collins's finest tracks, including the brilliant "Think" (which provided the immortal vocal sample for Rob Bass & DJ Easy Rock's "It Takes Two") and the supremely funky title track. This is essential listening for fans of funk, soul, and JB.
