✨✧ Lee Fields & The ExpressionsMy World ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2009. Used ... Out Of Stock
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

✨✧ Osaka MonaurailRiptide ... LP
Unique (Germany), 2014. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Tremendous work from one of our favorite funk combos ever – Japan's legendary Osaka Monaurail, easily one of the sharpest, tightest, most soulful groups of the past 20 years! These guys have a really no-nonsense approach to funk – from the top to the bottom, from the execution to the production, from the street to the speaker – with a sound that's one of the few to really get a pure approach to the best funky 45 material of the late 60s and early 70s! There's no hoke, no easy references, no simplistic retro sensibilities – just rock-solid, razor-sharp instrumentation – at a level to match the James Brown band on late 60s King Records – who are clearly an inspiration for the crew. This set's got all their best funky 45 energy firmly intact, but also features a few longer numbers with sweet solos too – and as usual, the vocals are completely unique – raw funk, but with an accented twist that really grabs us. Titles include "Riptide", "The Horse", "Liberty", "Solar Eclipse", "Calinga", "Fruit Basket", and "Determination". LP, Vinyl record album
