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.
This is a fabulous release with two albums from Shirley and Dolly Collins recorded on Harvest records and collected together. CD one brings us the album Anthems in Eden. Anthems in Eden is perhaps the most famous album and the most creative one from Shirley and Dolly Collins. This sixth album from Shirley is from 1969 and it is an incredible project. The album has been released and re released a few times. Here on this fabulous album Shirley provides her unique vocals along with Sister Dolly on portative organ. But this time there are a whole host of other musicians involved.
