Lula Collins :: Help Me

In 2009 the Tompkins Square label released the three CD compilation Fire In My Bones: Raw, Rare And Otherworldly African-American Gospel (1944-2007). Expertly curated by Mike McGonigal, the delta gospel soul of Lula Collins “Help Me” was a stand out, and its source material (1977’s The Delta Gospel Queen) received a vinyl reissue a decade later. At ten tracks, the LP is chock full of a special and swampy spiritual heat.
