Happy New Year to you all. I hope 2017 finds you in good health. I’m personally glad to see the back of 2016 as there were quite a number of negative events during the year for me personally. Hopefully this year is a bit more settled.
Whilst I’m not really someone who dwells on the previous year, I’d like to bring you a record from last year that was to my ears, one of the best releases of 2016, courtesy of the mighty Lee Fields.
I’m sure many of you are aware of the history of Lee Fields – from his early releases in the 70s and his return to prominence in the early 2000s as a member of the Daptone family. This release came out on Big Crown records, a label I had never heard of before but they really deliver the goods on this funk banger! I’ve decided to feature the instrumental b side as it’s just a little bit heavier and funkier, but the a-side still kicks ass! Hope you dig this one!
