Let's Get A Groove On
New - LP - DSLP-004
Sealed 2020 Remastered Reissue. First Remaster Since Its Original Release In 1998! "Lee Fields Spent Most Of The '90s On The Ace Label, Recording Soul-Blues Albums Whose Funkiness Was Often Dampened By Cheap-Sounding, Partly Synthesized Backing Tracks. Judging By His Performance On His Desco Records Debut Full-Length Let's Get A Groove On, Fields' Move To The Pioneering Old-School Funk-Revival Label Freed Him To Do The Kind Of Gritty, Authentic Funk Album He'd Been Itching To Record For Quite Some Time. Laying Out His Principle Of "Rough...Nasty...Genuine" Funk In A Spoken Intro, Fields Positively Smokes Through The Whole Record, Capturing All The Fire Of Late-'60s James Brown (Whom He Strongly And Unashamedly Resembles, Vocally) With The Help Of The Desco House Band, The Soul Providers, Who Lay Down A Richly Organic Set Of Guitar-And-Organ-Dominated Funk Backings. Let's Get A Groove On Is Blatantly Derivative Of Its Influences, But The Simple Act Of Returning Wholeheartedly To Those Influences -- In A Musical Climate Which Has Assimilated And Moved Away From Them -- Could In Itself Be Considered An Innovation. Regardless, It's A Stunning Performance From Fields And The Record That Fulfills Desco's Promise -- Quite Possibly One Of 1999's Best, And Definitely One Of Its Most Overlooked."

Let's Talk It Over
New - LP - TS012-LP
Sealed, Latest Run Of The 2013 Release. "Lee Fields Re-imaged His Career In Recent Years As A Sweet-Voiced R&b Soul Singer, Complete With Lush, Orchestrated Arrangements, And He's Done Pretty Well At It. But Back In The Early 1970s, After A Stint With Kool & The Gang, Fields Released A Series Of Hard-Hitting, James Brown-Influenced Funk Singles On Assorted Small Labels, Over-Seeing All The Arranging, Production, And Promotion On His Own. He Never Really Sought Any Kind Of Major-Label Deal, And His Debut LP, 1979's Let's Talk It Over, Was Self-Released, With Distribution Essentially Amounting To Fields Selling Copies At Shows And Out Of The Trunk Of His Car As He Navigated The Bar Tour Circuit. Times Change, And Things Change, And Eventually Copies Of The Lp Became Highly Sought After By Collectors, A Kind Of Holy Grail For Funk Fans, And A Favorite Sample Set For The Hip-Hop Era. This Reissue Finally Brings Fields' Lost Gem Into The Digital World, Adding In Seven Additional Tracks That Were Released As Independent Singles. The End Result Is A Treasure Chest Of Funk And Soul, With Hard-Hitting Production And Mega-Tons Of Energy And Verve. It's A Wonderful Resurrection For A Lost Gem In A New Century, And Proves Once Again That Funk And Soul Never Die." AMG Review By Steve Leggett. more
