Lee Fields – Sentimental Fool – Vinyl LP (Black) – Includes Digital Download Code – Pre-order – In Stock 10/28/22

Description

In early 2022, Lee met with Daptone Records and producer Gabriel Roth to record Sentimental Fool, a fully conceived, deep blues-tinged soul album. From its opening line to its final plaintive lyrics, the beauty, power, and raw humanity of Lee’s voice are on display here; the culmination of an astonishing run that seemed to defy gravity, soaring to ever greater heights.

Soul music springs from Lee Fields, as free and generous as God’s love.

It was from the 1960s, when he was a teenager in North Carolina sweating on juke joint stages, crumpled dollars falling at his feet. He continues now that the living legend is in his sixties, marking the beginning of the most successful and fruitful period of his career.

Like every living legend worth his salt, Fields has suffered despair, darkness, defeat. Though he now tours stages around the world, and though he helped other soul legends like Sharon Jones (once Fields’ backing vocalist) and Charles Bradley (whom Fields took on his first tour) get their first break , did not always have this position. There were years, known as “the 80s”, in which Fields almost gave up. His success these days is bittersweet: His dear friends Bradley and Jones have passed away, leaving Fields to outlive them and carry on his legacy.

With all these years, and all this life, comes a kind of divine wisdom, and Fields has it in spades. “I am a sinner, like everyone else,” she says gravely. He is not “holier than you,” she adds. He simply believes in people’s ability to love and be loved, and understands that music is the divine bridge to these places.
