RELEASE DATE: 4/26/2011
Lee Fields is a bona-fide, 100%, unadulterated, pure, gut-bucket soul singer. While the crate digging funk and soul community bestowed "legendary" status upon him due to his undeniably solid series of rare 7" singles (and one LP) recorded and released on his own independent labels in the 70s, he's never been one to sit in a dusty corner. New York label/production team Truth & Soul helped throw him a reintroduction party with the release of My World in 2009, an album chock full of beat-heavy, deep soul ballads. On the instrumental version of My World, the Expressions get their chance to shine on tracks textured with lush strings and funky horns, backed by a hard-hitting rhythm section. This instrumental set is the perfect companion piece to the original album.
