Lee Fields / Otis Lee

Finally catching up with problems. The computer issue is now solved and I'll try and fit in a few posts this week to make up for lost time. As it has literally just been sorted though I'm starting off with a couple of singles with the option of 320kbps mp3s or wavs.
The first seems most appropriate right now, "problems all the time". Both of these are fantastic soul singles.

Lee Fields - Problems

Unfortunately the LP (also titled 'Problems') containing this track is out of print but if this single is anything to go by it would be an amazing record. Slightly curious is the case that the LP was released in 2002 and the single only this year, but Truth and Soul, who released the single, also released his latest album 'My World'.
Only the a-side - probably should have had the same track on both sides because this 7" is quickly getting worn out.

Lee Fields - Problems MP3 or Wav


Otis Lee - Hard Row to Hoe

These have both been purchases from Honest Jons - currently my favourite shop anywhere - and even though their prices are absolutely amazing, this single sided 7" costs a fair bit (there are still other places selling it for more) but getting your hands on an original will cost you well over $1000 on the 'bay! To be fair, the song is a classic.
Pretty sure these new records are bootlegs and I have no idea when the original was released, mid-70s would be my guess.

New Releases

Troglosound: Orfanado - Sete (one sided LP) The sample of this sounds sooo good, personally can't afford it right now but listen to the sample!

L'Animaux Tryst and Time-Lag Records are now shipping the Cursillistas and Tempera records - not sure if TLR have the Tempera but Matt has both plus some other cool small edition stuff (Cursillistas cassette and White Light & American Drone Band) so send him a mail before it's too late.

Tomentosa has returned with a huge new list of stock. Literally hundreds of odd items, well worth a look.

Tape Drift: Fossils from the Sun / Rambutan - Split
Derek Rogers - Petit Chapeau
Chapels - Shadows
The Old Rig - Space Crawl

Blackest Rainbow have started posting the Sophie Cooper & Ben Nash CD, also check them and Boa Melody Bar for copies of the ridiculously delayed (seriously ordered that 2nd Jan) MV & EE 7".

$725? Ouch. Download on 999 Dances from a couple of years ago.
Can't wait for Time Lag's Big Blood LP though, should be excellent.

Saw the video of that locked groove record a little while ago, don't really understand how they've done it but certainly would be an interesting listen.
