FIELDS – FIELDS – 1969 (US) heavy psych/hard rock

A single self-titled album -- that's what the California power trio Fields left behind in 1969. Guitarist Richard Fortunato, bassist Patrick Burke, and drummer Steven Lagana had been deeply influenced by Cream, by the sound of things. Fields recorded this slab for UNI with producer Bill Rinehart (formerly of Emitt Rhodes' Merry-Go-Round). The first four cuts are solidly in the hard and heavy blues-rock terrain, with twinges of psychedelia tossed in the opening "Elysian Fields" and "Jump on You," two standouts with lots of great guitar work. Things begin to change a bit on "Sun Would Set," where the wasted psychedelia takes precedence over the rough and tumble; even with the Raelettes on backing vocals and the spaced-out wasted lyrics, it's still guitar-drenched and driven into the red so the impressionistic touches are hardly noticeable. Side two is comprised of a single cut -- "Love Is the Word" is nearly 19 minutes long and is one of those utterly ambitious and crazy experiments that actually worked, with bluesed-out acid rock guitar, whomping basslines, and a skittering though steady snare and shimmering cymbals. An overdriven organ enters the picture and then comes the fuzz. After about five minutes of power soloing, a Stax-inspired soul riff is established, the horns come pushing their way in, and we're off to the races. Along with the band, Northern soul chanteuse (courtesy of Motown Records) Brenda Holloway and the Raelettes come in from outer space and enter the groove, making this a full-blown psychedelic-soul tune that never, ever gives up its groove, grease, or grit. The vocals here are almost as deliriously powerful and lusty as the screaming six-string and overblown bass groove. Thank the gods that the Fields' LP has been dusted off, remastered, and reissued by Fallout on CD. Simply amazing.

I like Laurence Jones album Thunder In The Sky. As a young man he really is a good electric guitarist. He started out on classical guitar and then moved on to the electrics and the blues, after going out one night to a Blues gig. He loves Rory and mentions Rory on his website. He has played at Ballyshannon. The other thing is,he never lets his health issues to get in the way of his music. He says he wants to give his own twist to the Blues. My favourite tracks are Gotta Get Up, Put A Spell On Me and Thunder In The Sky. On Thunder In The Sky, Laurence does play the electric guitar passionately. Subrata.

Just finished reading 'Say No To The Devil' a biography of Rev Gary Davis.
Very good read. Great guitarist. Rory gets a mention cos they both played at a festival in Europe in 72.
Rev Gary Davis took Blind Boy Fuller under his wing and played 2nd guitar on some of his early recordings (Rev Gary Davis was also blind).
Subrata, have you read any good blues type books recently?

Hi Stevo, At present I am reading Buddy Guys biography, "When I Left Home". I will then move on to Taj Mahal "Autobiography Of A Bluesman" and then after that "Irish Folk And Traditional Blues". I have Muddy Waters biography "Can't Be Satisfied". Bob Hokum, Blues guitarist, founder of the Ealing Blues Festival and my cousin's friend recommend these books :- The Land Where The Blues Began by Alan Lomax and Searching The Blues by Mary Bett Hamilton. I read ten books on the go at times ( no joke) but I will get round to reading them all. Eric Clapton's autobiography is a good book on the Blues. However I am loving Buddy Guy's book. Subrata.x
