Editors’ Notes An old-school soul man whose career stretches back to the late '60s, Lee Fields is probably best known for his more recent work with the Brooklyn-based throwback label Truth and Soul Records. He's released exceptional albums with the label's house band The Expressions, including My World and Faithful Man. Blessed with a gritty and instantly likable voice that recalls a young James Brown, he's experiencing a late-career renaissance that's rare in modern music. Let's Talk It Over was first released sometime in the '70s on the microscopic Angle 3 label. It finds him in top form, singing his heart out over some absolutely top-shelf indie-funk instrumentation. Enhanced with a bunch of great bonus tracks, this is ideal listening for anybody who misses the good old days of R&B music, before the machines took over. Everything here's fantastic, but "Wanna Dance," "Take Me Back," "The Bull Is Coming," and "Flim Flam" are especially awesome.
