Along with Akron/Family's "Everyone Is Guilty" I cannot stop listening to "Ladies" by Lee Fields & Expressions. Jesus—when it takes that step up to the chorus where the usually restrained Lee's voice begins to burn and the horns pop... A shaker if there ever was one. Dancing around the house, wearing grooves in the hardwood floors... The track comes from this summer's My World. Listen now and listen loud:
Lee Fields & The Expressions "Ladies"
You can learn more about Fields, who is enjoying a sort of renaissance from his early days of the 70's the Stones Throw site. You can also grab the MP3, which of course, I recommend you do immediately. Then you'll need a low light, some soft sheets, and sex appeal, but the rest are up to you.
