The first taste of the Faithful Man album from Lee Fields & The Expressions – a living oracle of deep soul and at the very peak of skills in 2012 – seriously, the man and the band are completely incredible here! "You're The Kind Of Girl" gives us what we need from Lee – achingly soulful vocals dripping with experience and emotion and with a classic groove – but the Lee and band up the ante with some of the richest Truth & Soul production we've heard to date! There's some laidback psych soul touches in the guitar, some strings soar over the chorus, the horns have a unique style and keys are just as sweet. "It's All Over But The Crying" isn't a weepy as you might think, with Lee singing the tale of emotional demise. Later high points in a legendary life in soul!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Truth & Soul, 2013. New Copy
Great funky guitar kicks off this sweet gem from the Lady duo – riffing fast, then fuzzy and slow – all mixed with rolling conga lines that almost create a Curtom sort of energy to the tune, and helps the vocals really soar with a majesty that's even greater than their previous work! ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Truth & Soul, 2013. New Copy
One of the deepest tracks so far from Lady – a cut that has the duo stepping out in a mode that's almost vintage Memphis soul, but which has this nice contemporary crackle on the rhythms!

My World/Love Comes And Goes
Truth & Soul, 2007. New Copy

Art Yard (UK), 1973. New Copy
Previously unreleased material from the legendary Salah Ragab – two tracks of exotic, jazzy grooves! "Tribute To Sun Ra" is a cut that Ra would have loved – a jaunty little groover that has some angular horns on the top – very "Eastern" in feel, over a romping ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
