[SOUL] Don’t call the story of Lee Fields a comeback. Unlike his veteran soul brother Charles Bradley, who is now releasing material again after a hiatus filled with tragedy, Fields has been steadily putting out new music over his 43-year career. He\'s enjoyed a resurgence lately with the help of Truth and Soul Records, which has released and produced his last two albums, both of which return to the soul sound of the late 1960s. Fields’ voice doesn’t have the strength of Marvin’s, Otis’ or even Bradley’s, but he makes up for it with swagger. In fact, when he started his career, many called him “Little JB” for his resemblance to James Brown, who dominated his performances with a blustering strut. Fields has a similar bravado and—despite his age—hasn’t lost one step.
