Instrumental Version of Lee Fields & The Expressions 2014 Album!
Coming at a time when many new artists are trying to emulate the soul and swagger of the 1960s, Lee Fields showered us with authenticity on his 2014 Truth & Soul album Emma Jean. Hear the refreshed cover of the JJ Cale track "Magnolia" that embodies the late, great American singer-songwriter and the Tulsa Sound he helped create. There's a sharper wisdom in the songwriting - from the having loved, lost, and learned vibe of "Don't Leave Me This Way," backed by crooning guitar and wailing horns, to the sophisticated arrangements and studio acumen that's pared with Lee's straightforward sincerity in "Just Can't Win." Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys wrote "Paralyzed," and having Emma Jean mixed and partially recorded at his Nashville studio, country soul and bluesy rock are immediately noticeable. It brings a different kind of strut to the album, but Fields - born and raised in North Carolina - is right at home with the Southern soul sound.
