Gwendolyn Collins has a sassy sweet seductive voice and she is back with some more Storytelling 11 a selection of songs of love and lust – moments4love. Her cover of Barry White’s ‘I’m Gonna Luv U’ gets you in the mood, ‘(Hey Baby) Something’ ft Brigadier is another mid tempo beater. ‘I think I like U’ ft Mycah Chevalier and Sydni Marie is a bright up tempo groove. ‘All Those Things’ is a jazzy Soul down tempo groove. ‘Beautiful’ is an acoustic piano backed ballad duet with Brian Christopher. The two stand out cuts though are ‘Moments4Love’ a mid tempo dancer and ‘Smile4me’ a lovely bright up tempo tribute to her late father. Good solid album throughout from Gwendolyn.
Gwendolyn Collins. Born just across the river from New York City in the Garden State of New Jersey, Gwendolyn Collins was blessed with the gift of singing from her biological mother that was nurtured and matured by her adoptive parents. Gwendolyn has been singing since she was able to talk and at an early age began performing with the Church choir where her Father is a Deacon and later with the chorus in high school. It wasn’t until Gwendolyn moved to Maryland, just outside of the United States Capital, Washington, DC that that she began performing, writing, and recording music that would attract fans of all music genres.
I am not sure what happended to this cd as far as marketing goes. It is very hard to find and most people have never heard of it. But don't let it fool you, this guy has talent and he is backed by the David & The Giants band. It is similar in sound to Giant, Richard Marx, Stan Bush Toto, Survivor, etc. If you like any of these bands you will love this.
Ten of Collins' soft-rock hits (including "In the Air Tonight," "One More Night," and the cover of "Groovy Kind of Love") are given a smooth, friendly easy-listening treatment on this disc; the only drawback are the oppressive synthesized drums, which give the entire recording a mechanical feel.
The Iceman is in remarkable form on this 1992 live date, offering proof positive that his smoldering Texas-style electric blues is ageless. With a set list that spans from his early hit "Frosty" to tracks from his 1991 release, ICEMAN, Albert Collins's stinging technique makes his Telecaster sing out over his no-holds-barred full electric band. A deeply satisfying blues excursion, LIVE AT MONTREAUX was recorded merely a year before Collins's death from cancer, making it a fitting tribute as well as a fine concert recording.
