Lee Fields: out from James Brown's shadow


"No matter where Fields sang during his first weeks in New York, he says the make-it-rain response was the same. And though that promising beginning may not have led to stardom, it did kick-start an enduring professional singing career that, now in its fifth decade, could reach its aesthetic and popular peak with the release of Lee Fields & the Expressions' second LP, the marvelously soulful Faithful Man. And though his family soon followed him up the East Coast and his trips back home became less frequent, his North Carolina roots still play a pivotal role in his music and, indeed, in everything Fields does."  Independent Weekly
