There is always room in the world for the likes of Lee Fields and albums like this. Released last year in Canada as an import, My World got a domestic date right up against the holiday rush (and all the attendant hyped-up releases). This is some real R&B/sweet soul right here. After all, Fields has played the soul and funk circuit for four decades and more. Backed by the Expressions, including a boss horn squad, a steady-on rhythm section, simple yet nuanced guitar-playing and the Del-Larks on backing vocals, you've got depth and virtuosity up and down these tracks.
