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, 2014. New Copy (pic cover)
Lee Fields takes on a great tune by JJ Cale – and serves the whole thing up in a deep soul vibe that's a nice change from usual – almost a country soul sort of vibe, with a different late 60s mode than some of Lee's other work!

Truth & Soul, Late 70s. New Copy
Two cookers from Lee Fields – both cuts that show him at the top of his game! "Fought For Survival" has great drums and a heavy, fuzzy, funky sort of vibe – a righteous bassline that almost echoes Norman Whitfield work with The Temptations – but with a tighter funky 45 ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

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! Instrumentation is still live and very funky on the edit mix – and Ticklah takes the tune into ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

My World/Love Comes And Goes
Truth & Soul, 2007. New Copy
One of the greatest tunes we've ever heard from Lee Fields – a super-mellow bit of funk that's more like Marvin Gaye than some of his previous James Brown-styled tunes! The track's got a great laidback groove – vibes, snapping drums, and just a bit of strings – all couched ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

La Valla/Nora Se Va
Truth & Soul, 2006. New Copy
Quite possibly the heaviest groove we've heard to date from Bronx River Parkway – a tune that snaps out with a stark little break on the beginning – really crackling with a heavy funk energy, but also sharing a bit of Wu-Tang like piano in the background! As the tune rolls on, the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Daptone, 2014. New Copy

Psychedelphonic, 2014. New Copy
One of the fiercest, fuzziest tracks we've heard from these guys – tight drums, some raw guitar up front, and an overall mod groove that makes the girls' vocals sound a bit more edgey than usual! Tambourine drives the rhythms throughout – and the flipside features a mono mix of "Dr ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Funk Night, 2014. New Copy
A cool trippy groove builds nicely at the start of "Return Of Green Snake" – organ and bass snaking over some slinky drums – while guitar rings out a bit to encourage this great keyboard solo in the middle! "Spy Potion" continues the eerie, psych-ish feel – ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
