There aren't too many artists making soul music today who had a release in 1969, back when R&B was first beginning to give the drummer some. Lee Fields, however, is one such artist - or maybe he's better labeled a phenomenon. With a career spanning over 45 years, releases on a dozen different record labels, and having toured the world over with his raucous-yet-tender voice, it's mind-blowing that the music he's making with Brooklyn's Truth & Soul Records is the best of his career. With The Expressions - Truth & Soul's house band, Fields continues to evolve, enmeshed into the group's sweeping, string-laden, cinematic soul sound.
However, Mr. Fields' musical career goes far beyond this newfound resurgence. 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 Fields and mostly sold at shows and out of the back of his car, at one time fetched four digit numbers on eBay. Even the bootleg version from the early-90s sold for up to $400.
Truth & Soul proudly presents the deluxe re-issue of Lee Fields' "holy grail" album, Let's Talk it Over. This double LP edition augments the original album with bonus tracks 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 more. The deluxe re-issue is also repackaged with a new cover and never-before-seen photos of Lee Fields.
