✨✧ Lee FieldsFaithful Man ... CD
Truth & Soul, 2012. Used ... $2.99
Smoking soul from the mighty Lee Fields – and a set that really has him getting back to his roots, as well! The record's billed as a follow-up to the previous My World – but it's got a style that's much more deep soul, much more southern-tinged than that great record – a beautiful indication of Lee's rich legacy in soul music – which stretches back decades, with rare releases on small indie labels! Yet the sound here is much stronger than Fields ever got back in the day – thanks to help from The Expressions, and some sublime Truth & Soul production – a combination that really has the record feeling as if it were recorded for Atlantic at Muscle Shoals at the end of the 60s. Lee's vocals really rise to the setting, and may well be some of his best in years – and that's saying a hell of a lot, given how great he always is! A stone home run throughout – with titles that include "Faithful Man", "Wish You Were Here", "Moonlight Mile", "Walk On Thru That Door", "Still Hanging On", "You're The Kind Of Girl", and "I Still Got It".

✨✧ Lee FieldsDreaming Big Time ... CD
Ace, 1996. Used ... Out Of Stock
A great look at the other side of Lee Fields – the southern soul he was recording in the 70s, 80s, and 90s – in the years before he was discovered by the New York funky set, and turned into a Deep Funk legend! The tunes on the set are from 1996, and done in a style that has lots of the modern southern soul touches you'd hear on work for Malaco Records – the post 70s mode adopted by the Jackson scene, with some use of electric instruments, but still a strong focus on rootsy vocals and homey songwriting. All tracks are originals, and there's some really great numbers that include "Let Them Talk", "Looking For Somebody To Love", "Slip Out", "Wake Up & Smell The Coffee", "Sexy", and "Pretty Girls Girls Girls".

✨✧ Lee FieldsLet's Get A Groove On ... CD
Desco, 1999. Used ... Out Of Stock
Killer funk! Amazing new release by Lee Fields, one of the 70's lost funky geniuses – and a record that sounds like it was lifted from the vaults of James Brown's People label, circa 1972! Unlike other "funk revival" titles of the past few years (especially those by ex-JBs Fred Wesley and Maceo Parker), this one's got a totally perfect sound, and was produced with a loving adherence to the classic 70's funk sound that made Fields' early records so great. The instrumentation is a tight batch of drum-heavy, bass-heavy, break-heavy grooves – and Lee's voice is incredibly rich and soulful, approaching near-Godfather-like sensibilities! We love this one to death, and it's probably the most perfectly-formed album that Desco has released to date. Titles include "Bad, Bad, Bad", "Let's Get A Groove On", "Watch That Man", "Put It On Me", and "Steam Train". Great great great – and a real smoker! CD

VariousGrazing In The Trash Vol 1 – Soul Fire Funk 45 Collection ... CD
Soul Fire, 2001. Used ... $6.99
Some of the best funk ever recorded in modern years! This tasty CD-only set brings together 7 funky 45s (a & b sides!) recorded for the Soul Fire label – a groundbreaking imprint that sprung out of the ashes of the Desco Records empire, with a strong dedication to producing new records with a classic funk sound. All of these titles were initially pressed up on limited edition funky 45s, and most of them are now out of print, never to be put on vinyl again. The CD is the only chance you'll now get to hear most of the material – and it's all top-shelf, A-list, classic funk all the way through! Titles include "Compin & Smokin" and "Damper Down Popcorn" by Calypso King & The Soul Investigators, "Haaa-Sheesh" and "Just Some More Haaa-Sheesh" by JD & The Evil's Dynamite Band, "Soul Safari" and "Two Beat Beast" by Speedometer, "I'm The Man" and "Your Love" by Lee Fields, "Majestic Soul" and "Welfare Line" by Third Point, "There It Is" and "Hook & Sling" by The Soul Command, and even tunes from the "Soul Fire Educational" single, a mass of funky drumbreaks!

✨✧ VariousFallin Off The Reel Vol 2 – Truth & Soul Singles Collection ... CD
Truth & Soul, Early 70s/Early 2000s. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Heavy funk from two different decades – some real lost treasures from the 70s, stacked up here with some equally great work from recent years! The package is a massive second helping from the Truth & Soul family of labels – one that not only shows their continuing dedication to the best in deep funk, but also a recent turn towards older soul from the 70s – served up on a host of recent reissues that are really great! Most work here was only issued on 45s by the label – making the overstuffed collection a bargain at this price, especially given that some of the 45s aren't that easy to find of late. CD is different than the LP, with some tracks that are exclusive to this format, and vice-versa – and it features 18 tracks that include the previously unreleased "Odyssey Revised" by The Fabulous Three – plus "Love Comes & Goes" and "My World" by Lee Fields, "This One's For My Baby" and "PJs" by El Michels Affair, "An Earthquake's Coming" and "Is It Me You Really Love" by Black Velvet, "Just A Little While Longer" and "I Can't Help Myself" by Funky Music Machine, "Nora Se Va" and "La Valla" by Bronx River Parkway, "What's Going On" and "I'm Glad You're Mine" by Timothy McNealty, and "Agua Con Sol" by Bronx River Parkway.
