There are few things better than classic Motown soul, so what better than the instant vintage of Lee Fields, a long-time veteran of R&B whose played with Kool and the Gang, O.V. Wright, and Sammy Gordon and the Hip-Huggers.
“You’re The Kind of Girl,” taken from the recently released Faithful Man, is a proper cut of smoky soul that will have you double checking the release date just to make sure this isn’t a classic soul 45 from the 60’s.
While it may seem like hubris that inspired Fields to declare that he was probably one of the few “true soul singers” that’s left, one listen will confirm that fact and have you spreading the gospel of Lee Fields and the Expressions.
Have a listen below and be sure to snag a copy of Faithful Man out now on Truth & Soul Records.
