Sentimental Fool: Orange Vinyl LPDAP075LPX
Label: Daptone Records
Release Date: 28th October
You know what blows my wee mind? The idea that someone couldn't be moved by the classic soul sound of Lee Fields, that ageless romance and swoon of a love song, of that upright bass and Stax-horn sound that has you wanting to grab someone you care about, hold them and share a dance.
For those who dig: those old soul masters, those who could present their heart to a crowd, who can make you feel like they're soundtracking your love life and relationship. Otis Redding, Charles Bradley, Percy Sledge, James Carr, OV Wright, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings... You know the score.
Soul great Lee Fields signs to Daptone and announces a new album.
Lee Fields is arguably the greatest soul singer alive today. In an age when the shelf life of an artist largely depends on posturing and trends, he has proven to be an unassailable force of nature. His prolific, decade-spanning career continues to reign supreme on the modern soul scene.
