B: You Can’t Beat Two People In Love

People Records was the revered funk/soul imprint of the legendary James Brown,
who throughout the 1970s curated and made it home to an array of top-tier deep
funk artists, singers, and songwriters. It was during this time that the label hosted a
variety of "funky divas" like Marva Whitney, Vicki Anderson, and Myra Barnes.
Unquestionably the greatest of them all was Lyn Collins, whose R&B hit, the
frequently-sampled "Think (About It)" is one of the most enduring singles to emerge
from Brown's People label.
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" 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 Two People In Love", the funky soul-ballad
B-side, is not to be missed either, featuring additional backing vocals by Brown. Available from 22.07.2016
