Lee Fields & The Expressions are a soul group hailing from North Carolina, and Special Night is the group’s fifth studio album. If you are familiar with these guys’ work, then what you hear on this won’t be too out of your element. The singing is very soulful, and it is complemented greatly by the lovely instrumental performances. Fields’ voice is so soulful, and the man himself is an absolute legend. At this point he has owned his craft and he is sticking to it.
