Chronique Dusty Groove


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".

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

L'additionSpectaculaire album de cette ancienne vedette Soul. Certains passent de la gloire à l'anonymat, pour Lee Fields c'est le contraire. Même si certains puristes se souviennent de lui dans les années 70, c'est martin Solveig qui l'a en partie relancé . L'heure de gloire de ce super Papi de la Soul est arrivé  sur le tard. My World est un album moderne (2009) de Soul à l'ancienne comme il n'en existe que très peu. Sa voix absolument magique vous transporte vers d'autres cieux. Morceaux souples à la Al Green ou péchus à la JB, tout y est ! Un aller simple pour l'extase... Press Play !
