Lee Fields - Emma Jean

Soul Echo One

Apparently Lee Fields has been performing since 1969 and perhaps the competition then for good male soul singers was rather daunting, but this latest release has him reasserting his soul credentials with comfortable if not dynamic presence. No one will fill the vacuum left by the passing of Bobby Womack, but Fields does have a similar growl/rasp in his voice [compared otherwise with James Brown] and this is therefore a timely presence in that sad absence, the echo of a distinctive vocal an apt tribute.
