iTunes Review

Faithful Man sounds like a lost gem from the Stax or Hi Records vaults. And had Lee Fields actually recorded for one of those venerable labels back in 1969, he might have been a star. Instead he flew just below the radar as a lesser-known soul belter who spent years on the chitlin’ circuit and waged multiple comebacks; he thankfully hasn’t changed things much over time. His second release for the fine vintage soul revival label Truth & Soul is a solid showcase for his still-considerable vocal skills. His crack band The Expressions offer gritty yet sophisticated arrangements featuring horns, backup singers, occasional strings, and a mighty rhythm section that complements his deep, rich tone. He pleads and growls through heavy, world-weary ballads of heartache and loss, like “You’re the Kind of Girl,” “Wish You Were Here,” and the gut-busting title track, while his slow-burning cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Moonlight Mile” is an unexpected treat. Like Sharon Jones and Charles Bradley, Fields is an authentic old-school soul man who's survived into the modern age. This is timeless and powerful stuff that never goes out of style.

Discovered thanks to USA Network

The show SUITS played "Wish You Were Here" while one of the main characters was visiting his father's grave. The combo smacked me, and I ran SHAZAM to "discover" Lee Fields. Too cool.

BACK AGAIN

Lee Fields and The Expressions are the BEST and MOST LEGITIMATE thing making sound today. "My World" is definitely/assuredly one of the best albums in the past twenty years, and "Faithful Man" is pure magic. There is nothing else for me to say.

Amazing follow up!!!!

I've been waiting for this one since "My World" came out a couple years ago and it does not disappoint. Lee Fields is the realest, most soulful guy doing this type of music right now!

Lee Fields initially made his name among die-hard funk fans with a series of hard-hitting singles recorded for various small labels during the '70s. Everything about Fields -- his look, his vocals, the grooves on his records -- was so indebted to James Brown that he earned the nickname "Little J.B." Fields never hit it big, but his rough-and-tumble singles went on to become popular collectors' items. After a lengthy hiatus, Fields returned in the '90s as a soul-blues belter playing to female-heavy...
