Editorial Reviews

Over the past four years, Lee Fields has released two critically acclaimed full lengths on the Truth & Soul label, which have secured him a younger and extremely dedicated audience. He has been touring the world, gaining new fans that now know Mr. Fields for the tough-as-nails, lushly orchestrated sweet soul music that is featured on the My World and Faithful Man records. However, Mr. Fields musical career goes far beyond those two records. A quick rundown: In 1967, with twenty dollars in his pocket, Lee left his hometown of Wilson, North Carolina to pursue a musical career in New York City. He eventually made his home in Brooklyn, where he cut his teeth performing in some of the hottest clubs in the borough: Tempo Soul City, the Fulton Terrace, the Boston Road Ballroom and 521, where the owner, Gene Goldstein, allegedly ran numbers when we wasn t booking Wilson Pickett and Joe Tex. In 1969, Lee met Ray Patterson, a promoter and club owner, who released his very rst single, "Bewildered" b/w "Tell Her I Love Her", on the Bedford label. In the early 70's, after a brief stint as an auxiliary member of Kool & the Gang, Lee released a series of hard-funk singles on various long-gone labels. But instead of chasing the ever-elusive major label deal, Lee released these singles by himself and oversaw all aspects of production and promotion. Lee released his very first full-length LP in 1979 entitled, "Let's Talk It Over". It featured his most successful song of the era, "She's a Lovemaker", which was at one time licensed and promoted by London Records. Mint copies of "Let's Talk it Over", which was self released by Mr. Fields and mostly sold at shows and out the back of his car, can fetch four digit numbers on eBay. Even the bootleg version from the early nineties sells for up to four hundred dollars. Truth & Soul is proud to present the deluxe re-issue of Lee Fields' "holy grail" album, "Let's Talk it Over". The CD and double LP also features songs from his singles catalogue including "Funky Screw", "We Fought For Survival", "Bewildered", "Meet Me Tonight", "The Bull Is Coming", "Everybody's Gonna Give Their Thing Away", and many more. The deluxe re-issue is also repackaged with a new cover and never-before-seen photos of Lee Fields.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I fully agree with SoundWord Enthusiant in regards to both the high quality of music on this CD and the shockingly shoddy packaging. If it wasn't for the main editorial review on Amazon, I would have had no idea when this album was first recorded and released, or anything else about it. On this so-called "Deluxe Edition" you get the 8 tracks that apparently comprised the original album, plus 7 bonus tracks. All of which makes for a terrific listening experience. These are killer tunes, much more raw and funky than the retro soul found on the two excellent albums that Fields has put out recently, "Faithful Man" and "My World." Fields definitely exudes a James Brown vibe, especially with his vocals, on these songs.

Too bad that we have no idea who is playing these instruments or who wrote the songs. This "Deluxe Edition doesn't tell us that either. Like the other reviewer said, we don't need a big thick booklet with copious photos and essays. But some basic information and the history of this album and about Lee Fields (great cover photo!) would have been nice. More than that, it should have been required! No booklet, no recording year listed, no musicians listed, no songwriters listed, no liner notes ... who dropped the ball on this one? It almost makes you wonder if Lee Fields will get any royalties from the sale of this reissue. A shame about the dearth of information on this CD, but if you are looking for sincerely great soul and funk with that vintage late 60s/early 70s vibe to it, you'll be mightily impressed with the music on this album.

This music is freakin' faultless: pulsating funk, pleading ballads, gritty grooves. It's no wonder this album has been a cherished rarity for years. Unlike most such coveted scarcities, this one fully lives up to the hype. By all means, now that it is both affordable and widely available, there's NO EXCUSE to not snatch it up. Fields's urgent vocals perfectly convey both intensity and melody, and the backing musicians are tight without being slick. It's captured in an atmospheric, mid-fi sound quality that only adds to the sincerity and convection on display. This is classic music, period, and it's good to have it at my fingertips at long last. The bonus of several rare single sides only sweetens the pot.

But, I have to say, the presentation is VERY disappointing. No amount of neglect could tarnish the magic of these tunes, but this could have been a slam dunk if a little more care and effort had been put into the packaging. Mostly, I was bummed to find there were absolutely no liner notes...this album was the product of a struggling, hardworking talent, and the story behind its creation should have been told. There are very few photos. The original album cover is not represented anywhere. Backing musicians are not credited. Songwriters and producer(s) are not cited at all. I don't need a twenty-page book or anything, but a few nice paragraphs would go a long way.

I don't mean to nitpick, but the standard of reissues has escalated considerably over the past ten or fifteen years, and I'm sad to see Truth & Soul not rising to the occasion. Still, even this degree of indifference can't degrade music this radiant. BUY IT.

(PS -- if there was supposed to be an informative, photo-filled insert and my copy of the LP package just didn't happen to include it, please let me know and I will retract all this!)
