Lee Fields & The Expressions - New 45 Big Crown Records Release

Lee Fields & The Expressions - New 45 Big Crown Records Release magazine cover


Following up on the massive success of Lee Fields recently released full length “It Rains Love” we drop another 45 for the DJs and collectors. This time showing off two different sides of Lee & The Expressions range.

The A side “Wake Up” is Lee’s heavy duty, drum driven, anthemic tune for the times. Fields calls out the highly over-used and abused term of the current presidency “fake news.” Over a hard as nails sound bed courtesy of The Expressions he goes on asking people to wake up and not let this propaganda sway them from knowing what is right and wrong.

The B side “You’re What’s Needed In My Life” is a gushing testament to the beauty of love. Solidifying his title as the Professor of Love it’s almost like he’s writing your girl’s valentine for you. Going beyond how happy the woman he is singing to makes him and telling of how she makes everyone she meets happier. This two-sider is about as classic as possible, a heavy duty funk banger on the A side, and nothing but love on the ballad B side. Another classic and timeless offering from the one and only Lee Fields.

Sounds like a strong record, I particularly like the b-side.

As it happens, I've been searching Lee Fields as I'm partway through reading 'Long Slow Train' , the book about the soul music of Sharon Jones & the Dap-JKings by Donald Brackett.

I thought people might like this screenshot from a comment on the YouTube posting for the excellent Lee Fields track, 'Just can't win':


Just in case that doesn't load properly, the text is "In fact I don't trust people that don't listen to soul music."
