Lee Fields- Stand Up (7" Record) (Daptone)

This single was released last spring. I am not aware of a full length release from Lee Fields since this song. It's divided into two short parts like a lot of late sixties and early seventies James Brown singles. Once again, Brooklyn's Daptone Records are excelling in the field of delivering new funk.
This single features Daptone label mates Neal Sugarman (Sugarman 3 leader and sax-man), some greasy funk from Dave Guy's trumpet, and Al Street on guitar. It's another Lee Fields soul shouter in the spirit of James Brown, with a slow, bubbling background spread over the two sides. Side B is a continuation of the song rather than an instrumental take.
