Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMy World ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2009. New Copy .... $9.99 17.98
One of the best new soul records we've heard in years – a tremendous accomplishment for the mighty Lee Fields, and a set that's quite different than any of his other work! We've always loved Lee's funk and deep soul sides, but this album's something new altogether – almost done in the hard-edge, downtempo mode of the east coast harmony scene of the late 60s and early 70s – like some of the best group soul work coming out of New Jersey or Philly, with some super-dope production and instrumentation that's really amazing! The grooves follow strongly in the same laidback style as recent El Michels work – no surprise, given the El Michels connection to the music – with beats that are hard, but slow – and instrumentation that's funky, but in a mellow sort of way. Lee's vocals are as deep as ever – very much trained in the James Brown tradition, but turned here towards a really unique groove that makes us completely reevaluate his talents – an amazing achievement not just for Fields, but also for the whole Truth & Soul/El Michels crew! An instant classic – with tracks that include "My World", "Ladies", "Expressions Theme", "Honey Dove", "Money I$ King", "Love Comes & Goes", "Do You Love Me", and "Last Ride". CD
Also available My World ... LP 12.99

New Shaolin Temple DefendersTake It Slow ... LP
Music Action (France), 2010. New Copy .... Out Of Stock
Hard to take it slow with the Shaolin Temple Defenders – given that these guys are one of the tightest funky combos working in the European scene! The set smokes right from the get-go – quick rhythms, bold horns, and burning Hammond – all to set a groove for deeply soulful lead vocals from the Lion Of Bordeaux – a singer with a sound that hearkens back to some of the legendary James Brown divas of the late 60s and early 70s! Pierre Petit plays some great guitar – setting an edge and casting out the rhythms at the same time – and titles include "The Duty", "Lonely Walker", "Mr Dandy", "Back On My Memories", "Take It Slow", "Growing Up", and "Starting Anew". LP, Vinyl record album
