TTM put the driving funk to the side on this one and bring in the grinding soulfulness of the brilliant Lee Fields. I don’t think the hairs on my arms ever stood down after Mr Fields dropped the stirring Could have been. So a collaboration between driving funk and grinding soul on a quality piece of vinyl keeps a smile firmly plastered across my chops!
Where do we go from here is less about paying homage to the funk/soul legends of the past, it’s more about cementing Lee Fields in the now. Soul music is all about looking for love, finding love and losing love and Lee brings one of these situations to the table and tells you all you need to know about it.
TMM deliver rousing horns in the chorus and lift Lee’s vocals to another level giving the track a fantastic depth.
But TMM aren’t finished there as they drop back into B-boy breaks mode on side b with the belting b-boy Suite in b minor.
It’s a great release, so get your mittens on it here and listen below.
