LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: Regenerate

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: RegenerateRegenerate – surely there’s no more apt name for a single by Lee Fields & The Expressions given our Lee’s evergreen soul status. Sadly only available on digital format, Regenerate is noteworthy for a number of reasons. Firstly, it’s a track from the It Rains Love LP recording sessions that never made it onto the album – though don’t be thinking that means it’s in any way less dope. Why? Because

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: Don’t Give Up

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: Don't Give UpPrefaced by a lovely little guitar vamp, Lee Fields’ new single and soul slowie Don’t Give Up (the bonus track from this year’s It Rains Love album), encourages the listener not to give up on love when the ‘winds of uncertainties have rattled your faith.’ Is Mr Fields having another lady crisis or could he be talking about love in a wider sense? The PR blah notes that the track contains, ‘the

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: ‘Wake Up’ video

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: 'Wake Up' videoThe new video to Lee Fields’ funky lament Wake Up couldn’t have come at a more apposite time, could it? On the track, soul-man Fields delivers a funky look at the state of the nation and is exasperated by what he sees, exhorting people to ‘speak out’ about ‘all these lies’ against a backdrop of animated artwork courtesy of El Oms. A message you have to hope gets through given

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: It Rains Love

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS: It Rains LoveThe success of the ongoing soul revival that began as the nineties ended and the noughties began gained much traction from the fact that a triumvirate of survivors from the golden era of funk and soul were hugely active within the scene. And while Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley may have sadly now have passed on, the man whose career launched theirs, Lee Fields, continues to

LEE FIELDS: You’re What’s Needed In My Life (Video)

LEE FIELDS: You're What's Needed In My Life (Video)It rains love on 5 April this year with the release of Lee Fields’ next album and before that comes the fairly intense shower of affection that is his video for new soul slowie You’re What’s Needed In My Life. He’s on about his woman of course though I can’t imagine her taking any of that sass – she’s her own person – it is the twenty-first century! Oohh – he’s calling her ‘girl’ now too – she’ll have

LEE FIELDS: Will I Get Off Easy (Vinyl 7″) + video + 2019 tour dates

LEE FIELDS:  Will I Get Off Easy (Vinyl 7Soul survivor Lee Fields celebrated fifty years in the business this year and, with absolutely no signs of slowing down whatsoever, drops the video to Will I Get Off Easy, the flip to the title track, from forthcoming long-player, It Rains Love. Will he get off easy!? What have you been up to now Lee, you sly old dog? The lyrics are conveniently nebulous – he’s been stopping out late again

LEE FIELDS: It Rains Love (Vinyl 7″) + video

LEE FIELDS:  It Rains Love (Vinyl 7Veteran soul man Lee Fields is back already with new single It Rains Love, and as our Lee’ll tell you – when you do find that special person, you hang on to them because, “when you got someone…who really loves you…you got everything.” I think that calls for a song! A downtempo drum break maybe, some reflective instrumentation and that voice of course. Oohh – I know – and a video

EL MICHELS AFFAIR feat. LEE FIELDS: Never Be Another You (Reggae remix) (Vinyl 7″)

LEE FIELDS:  Never Be Another You (Reggae remix) (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Following the first installment, we now have the second of October’s ‘top reggae nuggets you didn’t see coming’ – though the soulful early reggae remix version of Lee Field’s late night tribute to a lady, Never Be Another You, is a different beast entirely. Also, I say ‘you didn’t see coming’ – it turns out our Lee has been asking

LEE FIELDS & THE EXPRESSIONS + LADY WRAY: Electric Ballroom (London) Thursday 25th January 2018

Soul man Lee Fields makes another trip to UK shores on Thursday 25th January this year in the company of his band The Expressions and soul sister Lady Wray. The presence of two of New York label Big Crown’s biggest artists at London’s Electric Ballroom should certainly ensure a high voltage show. Not least of the reasons for this will be their respective pedigrees. Fields has been

LEE FIELDS: Time (2017) + European Tour 2017

LEE FIELDS:  Time (2017)Time Lee Fields had a new single out isn’t it – what with his touring Europe in November? Oh look, he does and it’s called Time. And it behoves us to listen to the ruminations of the man formerly known as ‘Little JB’ since, with the sad departure of both Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, he is now the undisputed ‘Soul Survivor Number 1’. So what does Mr F have
